What is Amazon KDP?
Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) allows you to self-publish your own eBooks for FREE on Amazon's platform immediately giving you access to millions of potential customers!
The publishing process takes around 5 minutes and will be live on Amazon with 24-48 hours! For me, to have an opportunity to have an eBook on Amazon's platform for free is a huge opportunity!
This 2 minute introduction gives a good feel for how the process works
How much can I earn with Amazon KDP?
So Amazon definitely aren't listing your eBook for free with no idea of getting a cut of the profits. Amazon will pay you a royalty when you eBook sells and the percentage you get can vary.
- 70% - To get this top bracket of royalty you have to jump through Amazon's hoops:
To qualify for the 70% royalty option, books must meet these requirements:
- The author or publisher-supplied list price must satisfy list price requirements.
- The list price must be at least 20% below the list price on Amazon for the physical book.
- Titles must be made available for sale in all geographies for which the author or publisher has rights.
- 35% - This is the much more achievable royalty you will earn if you can't meet the above.
