Using ISBN as a decoration

I bought ISBN for $20 from ISBN company, but have not completed the form to register it for my book. The book is ready (printed edition), and I would like to put it in a specific on-line self-publishing bookstore with this number on the copyright page and back-cover bar code, just to look professional, and later, maybe to provide the book info for this ISBN, or get my own ISBN. Eventually, I am planning to distribute the book through a larger distributer (like Ingram), but at this point, to use the above-mentioned on-line store for experiments and feedback. Are there any drawbacks or restrictions in such an approach?
