They manufacture physical products when customers order so no pre-built inventory is needed.

You can make your books, music and video available to millions of customers by selling on Amazon.com, the CreateSpace Shop, and on your own website with a customized eStore.

Adding a new title to CreateSpace is free. This includes getting your title set up in our system and the creation of a personalized E-Store for you to use to promote sales. If you want to send in a videotape master for your DVD, additional fees apply.
Using CreateSpace is easy! Just send your source materials and some simple graphics. Once they have your disc or book ready, they create your customized E-Store. You send a list price for the title, and they determine the selling price. When customers order a copy they charge their card, duplicate the title and ship it to them. CreateSpace then sends you royalty payments on a monthly basis.

    I’ve tried both lulu and createspace. Have to say the lulu online interface works better and the print quality (books) is better. However, the pricing of the product for the public to purchase is much better createspace. Plus it is cheaper to get your books listed on Amazon with createspace. If you are printing a book to hand out to friend, go with lulu. If you really think your book has a chance to sell, then I’d go with createspace.
