The IBPA member benefit

IBPA members receive access to NPD BookScan data across two tiers at deeply discounted rates. Each tier is limited to IBPA members within a specific revenue band.

In September 2018, NPD launched their new DecisionKey Dashboard. With DecisionKey, users can see metrics about the industries, categories, competitors, and brands that matter to their business in a graphical view that’s easier to consume and less data-intensive. Read more here.

Your IBPA member discount remains the lowest discount offered by NPD to any organization. Even with the price changes below, IBPA members receive >50% discount on both Tier One and Tier Two access.

Query, previously a premium add-on service that is now available to IBPA members as part of Tier 2 access, is a dynamic search tool which allows the user to pull customized reports up to 10k ISBNs deep based on criteria such as BISAC, Category, Publisher, Format, ISBN, Title, or Author. The output of Query reporting is essentially a bestseller list, but with up to 10,000 results and the ability to export the results to Excel, the possibilities for analysis are exponentially greater than your average bestseller list!
