If you've published your paperback on kdp I believe you have to order them like any other customer. Did you use kdp or Create Space?

KDP-print has said they will have author-copies available at printing cost "soon." I assume that's what you want. If you don't see a way to order them, ask KDP directly, using the Contact link at lower right. Ask them how to buy "author copies."

Otherwise, just buy copies from Amazon the way any regular customer would. At least you'll get your royalty back, and it will help your rank.

That option does not exist. You will have to purchase books full price - you will receive the normal residual which will cut your cost some. This is one of the reasons so many of us have recommended using Createspace instead of KDP. Many also have recommended reading the provided information before publishing. KDP states flatly it does not provide proof copies etc. You might consider unpublishing and starting over on Createspace if it is important to your plans to have discount copies. B

Quite right, I should have said does not currently exist.
Tried it on the one book I did on KDP as an experiment and it is not available. it may be coming to a paperback near you soon, but not yet and they don't say when. B
