Upload to Apple Work Order

Upload to Apple—Required Metadata
Below is the information required when uploading books to Apple. If this is part of your work order, copy the information below into a Word document, complete the necessary fields, and email to formatting@marieforce.com so we can complete your request.  Allow 7 to 10 business days for processing by Apple. They are the slowest of all the retailers to make books live, so we recommend uploading to them FIRST.
