Can a UK author sell paperback copies in Canada?

Hi Everyone,

I wondered if anyone could shed some light on my current dilemma. I am in the UK and am able to sell my book world wide. I have sold copies in the USA but for some reason, my friends in Canada are unable to purchase the book in Paperback through Amazon, they can only buy it in EBook.

Has anyone had the same problem and is there something I can do to change this?

Thank you in advance for your advice :-)

I assume you published your print book through KDP-print. To the best of my knowledge, such books are not available in Canada.

However, CreateSpace books are! Weird but true. Maybe you should publish through CS. Since you got your book all formatted already, setting it up should be easy. You can always unpublish your KDP-print version. You can buy regular-price CS copies from your UK account just as you did KDP-print copies.

If you did publish through CS, I understand there is about a month delay before such books appear on the .ca site. Good luck!
