How many ISBNs do I need to self-publish my book? | Self-Publishing #shorts

For your ISBN, or International Standard Book Number, you will need 1 for each format of your book.

As an example, my book The Infinite-Infinite is available in 4 formats:

I have 4 ISBNs for this one title.
Exactly 4 ISBNs.
When I upload my eBook to KDP and then to Smashwords, I’m using the same eBook ISBN.
When I upload my print book to KDP and then to IngramSpark, I’m using the same paperback ISBN.
The ISBN is specific to the title and format, NOT the self-publishing platform.

What other ISBN questions do you have?
