I normally write my books in 2 different languages and then publish them one by one on Amazon KDP in 2 separate accounts.
I want to include reference to each both in another's display page in Amazon. (Not in the book content but display page of Amazon)
Something like "Want to read the same story in Hindi? Click here. (This should point to the Amazon book page in Hindi.) "
Which section of book details can I use for this purpose?
Can I use book description? Do I need to use something else?
You are saying two different accounts. If you are saying what it sounds like, you can get yourself into big trouble with the zon. You should have only one account and should ask that they merge them. As far as referring one book to the other, you can mention whatever in your blurb.
No, it is not all right to have two accounts with two different bank accounts. If you got this info from KDP, they told you wrong. People have been banned for this.
It's easiest by far to have just one account. Then you have the same name if you want on all books (either your real name or a pen name--you do need your real name on your account but it doesn't have to be on the books).
Call one version of your book "English language version" and the other "Hindi language version" as a subtitle. Ask Amazon to link them (giving the ASINs). Then they will appear together.
I'm with Dale. This has long been considered a violation of the TOS that can get YOU blocked from the KDP. I would straighten this out right away. It is far more important than linking to the other-language book, which I will happily help you with when the time comes.
Start a new support ticket, explain what you've done -- that you have actually published ebooks under two different accounts, and presumably with the same tax identification number -- and that you want to combine them.
Dale and I may be wrong about this, but I really don't think so!
(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)
I have explained this situation to Amazon via a support ticket and asked them to merge these 2 accounts into 1 although I do have their written confirmation that this was OK. Probably there may be some misunderstanding in what I am saying and what they interpreted.
In any case I decided to go along with your advice and explained this to them. Let's hope that this is sorted out soon.
