Hello all! I'm unable to find anything that explains the pricing structure so I can't find out why I am not able to offer anything below 2.99 (US market). I have short stories and I feel a lower price is a better value for those. Any tips on where to find that info? Also, I know Amazon has a 99c program called 'Kindle Singles' and that's where I'd like to put several things. Sadly, I can't find info on THAT either, lol. Help please!
If you select 35% royalty and Amazon still won't let you drop your price below $2.99, you may have a file size problem. If it's too large, they won't allow you to sell for the lower price. If this is causing your problem, you need to optimize your cover image and compress your manuscript file.
Sorry, roseannhaines, I guess I wasn't clear. I mean, how is it different from just publishing normally? I already have short works published on Kindle. How would they be different if they were "Kindle singles"? The length would be the same; the price would be the same; the royalties would be the same. I just don't get what the difference is. Are they listed in some other place, or something?

I believe the Singles program allows you to put a short-story in for 70% at a price between .99 and $2.98. There's some sort of application and approval process and I don't know if they take all genres or not, but it could be really useful for people with short, high caliber .99-ish pieces.
