I used to use CreateSpace for my paperbacks but saw the new feature to create them straight from this dashboard. For some reason, I can't seem to order author copies like I can on the CreateSpace dashboard. I read the FAQs and it said it can be done by clicking the ellipsis next to edit paperback and there's a selection for ordering copies but for me there's nothing there. What am I doing wrong?

They've been promising this for months. Safer just to publish your paperback through CreateSpace.

Just don't let CS try to do your ebook. Do it yourself through KDP.

When it appears on your Bookshelf (...) menu. Check weekly.

Why fuss with a second-rate platform? You can get author copies at cost+shipping at CreateSpace now. Choose expanded distribution and your books will be sold on Barnes&Noble and many other online bookstores -- including Amazon stores in Canada and Australia!

Good luck! -- NJ
