I am currently selling an e-book on kdp amazon, can i also sell the same e-book on Amazon, i am not sure on how it is all tied together.
Same with CreateSpace, i think it is an Amazon company, but can i sell on it as well as Amazon and KDP Amazon and not get booted off.
I appreciate any clarification someone could give me on this, all selling would be with the (same) e-book.

I forgot to ask about KDP Select, can i enroll in that as well if listing an e-book on CreateSpace, i know the KDP Select reading says you can't be selling e-book anywhere else or they will suspend your account (but) beings i think CreateSpace is an Amazon company does that include not selling on CreateSpace while enrolled in the KDP Select ?
No, i am published on KDP i just wanted to make sure that (if) i signed up for Select i wouldn't be in trouble for being published on CreateSpace. But now i know CreateSpace is the physical hard copy and KDP is the Digital/E-Book., it is just KDP says can't have digital being sold anywhere to quality and i did not know CreatsSpace was just hard copy.....so i am good to there.
My other question was can i sell E-Books on KDP as Well on Amazon (two separate listings same exact book) or when you list it on KDP does it automatically show up on regular Amazon, i am still a little confused as to whether i can do that or not ?
Hello . my name is Michael and I am fairly new to all this stuff. well to be honest its all like rocket science. I have the same two publications out, one on amazon and one on createspace.
I have my account set up to check sales etc on both sites. my question is there a way say I can log on and see at a glace instant so to speak and see my total sales for both kindle and pod orders as from when my books first went on sale, plus the amounts of royalties etc.
I checked the royalties for the kindle the other day and it went from £15 down to £10. I don't know if I am not doing this right or not? any ideas or thought?
Welcome to KDP, Michael. Usually it's best to start a new thread with a new question. (Though certainly look at old threads to see if your question might already have been answered.) Otherwise you may not see the answer.
Sorry, there's no one place to look for both CreateSpace sales and KDP sales. They are reported separately, each on its own dashboard. Also, neither has a "lifetime total" of sales. Do what most of us do, make our own spreadsheet and add them up once a month.
You say your royalties went "down." I assume you're looking at the numbers under the graph. Assuming your book has been for sale more than a month, then note it's a 30-day graph. Each day a new day's amount of sales is added on the front and one dropped off the back. If you sold more books 31 days ago than you did today, then the number will seem to decrease.
To keep track of your actual royalties, your best friend is the "prior month" report. The one for June came out just the other day. The last 12 months are always available. They show how much you actually earned--the basis for how much you'll be paid. Good luck!
