Is there any way for turkey author's to publish a book in AMazon. What's the process.

I spent a lot in formatting this author book, finally she says payment issues for people from Turkey.

Is that true?

If there is no support for EFT (electronic funds transfer) to Turkey, you may need to look to see if a local branch of an international bank (British, say, or U.S.) is near you. Lacking that, you might want to investigate Payoneer, which is a credit/debit card company whose accounts look like U.S. bank accounts, and Amazon does pay into those. There's at least an annual fee, however, so do do your research.

Is your book in Turkish? If so, I don't think that's a supported language. But your efforts may still not be in vain. See if Smash*words or Direct*2*Digital (each without the *'s) supports it.

Also, before doing anything, see what others here say.

Yup, Turkish isn't supported. Neither is Arabic or Kurmanji, for that matter.

Here's the official list (if the post doesn't get modded): https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/A9FDO0A3V0119

I think I'll write my next book in Eastern Frisian. It will probably be completely unintelligible to readers of Northern Frisian...

Like one of the answers here, you can have a great solution to your need through a company called Payoneer.

Let me explain how they help you. It is the same solution that I use as my country's bank is not listed by Amazon. I come from Africa but paid through a form of a US bank account that I got through Payoneer. They help you take US Payments which is credited to a MasterCard given to you, which you use at the ATM. Some countries too are able to transfer the fund to their country's bank through Payoneer.

I wrote everything in a free guide which you can have. Get the ebook free via the link below. It is free.
