Kindle Direct Publishing Agreement

However, one restriction is that your payment amount must meet a minimum threshold before being paid. You can choose to be paid by several options such as direct payment, transfer or check. I publish a book and wonder if Amazon can decide that the 50-50 royalties would transfer them to two different bank accounts. KDP Select is a program for authors to give exclusive rights to Amazon to sell an eBook only on the Kindle platform. This means that the author`s eBook will only be available for purchase on Amazon`s Kindle platform and that the author will not be able to use another self-publishing platform to distribute his eBook. In addition to the fact that they are free to publish on KPD, self-published authors generally spend money on authorship services in order to prepare their book for publication. These include services such as book cover design, formatting, publishing and marketing costs. The second part of the publication of your book on KDP focuses on your copyright and the pricing of your book as well as some other logistics. Depending on the country in which you live, ISBNs may have the cost of self-publishing. For example, ISBN is free in Canada, but in the U.S., a single ISBN costs $125 (there are discounts for ISBN blocks). Now that your file is properly formatted for KDP, it`s time to start the publishing process! There are many advantages if you publish your book on KDP yourself.

Amazon KDP Publishing has helped revolutionize the publishing industry and allowed authors to publish a book and create a sustainable bookstore. If you publish a book on Kindle Direct Publishing, you`ll probably have graphics in your book. These graphic images may contain infographics, graphics or photos. When you first post yourself on KDP, I highly recommend you read the help message in the next window. This does not mean that it is impossible to save on self-publishing. For example, while you may have to pay for a game, you can format your book for free with apps like the reedsy book publisher. There are also some book promotion services that list your book for free, although they keep in mind that their submissions can be competitive. If you really want to save costs, you can even modify and design your own cover, even if we don`t recommend it, unless you already know a lot of design. Under “Catalogue Price in Each Distribution Channel,” we talk about the recommended or recommended selling price or, if you sell your book directly to end-users, their own selling price for a book edition available outside our program.

Please help me on my royalties especially on the small paperback and kindle version. Thank you. An important step in publishing your book file in KDP is to make sure that you have formatted all the front and back formats needed for your book. As far as payment method is best for you, you should know that there is no payment threshold for direct deposit. For cheque and transfer payments, you will only be paid after paying a certain amount of royalties (for example. B 100 USD and CAD and 100 USD in the UK). The full list of payment thresholds is available here. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is Amazon`s book publishing platform, which allows users to publish a book that readers can purchase as ebooks or print-on-demand. It is one of the best publishers and currently dominates the self-publishing market. Unlike the vanity presses that authors charge for publication, Amazon won`t charge you money in advance to publish your book itself. Instead, delivery fees (for e-books) and printing fees (for paperbacks) are deducted from your royalties. Let`s go down the cost of Amazon`s self-publishing.

This is perhaps the most common price issue we receive from new self-publishing authors. The answer is that your royalties do not change, subject to Amazon`s terms and conditions here on its digital eBook price page or here on its printed price page.
