I uploaded book cover and published it. But still Amazon.com is showing old book cover, which I uploaded first time.

However when user purchases and downloads, they can see updated cover as the first page.
Old book cover is not good. I want amazon.com or amazon.in to show latest cover at the time of purchasing it.

I am in the process of changing the title of my Kindle ebook. My cover designer has already sent me the revised cover but I still have to submit a revised MS. and put it on Kindle. I have been told not to use a new URL but keep the present one. Comments would be helpful.

It takes a few days to about a week for the change to show.
Right now the system is a little slow with the after Christmas rush.

If possible delete your first version since it is a title change. See the three dots to the right of the book on your bookshelf (above).
If you put the same book for sale with the changes you noted, the Zon can consider it the same book and assume you are trying to cheat the system. That can get you tossed off for good (no account).
