Amazon KDP

eBook Distribution through Amazon KDP

Whether this ebook is your first or your fiftieth, the most obvious platform to distribute through is Amazon. Here are a few reasons why distributing through Amazon makes the most sense:

  • Amazon’s Kindle Publishing still rules the ebook market.
  • Amazon’s system for distribution is user-friendly and quick to use. The first upload and the following updates or adjustments are easy to make.
  • Amazon allows self-publishers to maintain full rights to their own material.
  • Amazon doesn’t charge anything to create an Amazon KDP account or to upload a book for sale. Authors pick their own list price, and Amazon gets a percentage of the royalties each time a book sells. (The percentage of royalties that Amazon takes depends on the price of the book.)
