Managing the Availability of Your Book

During the title setup process, you will be asked to enter the territories you hold electronic publishing rights to for your publication. If you are certain you have all rights necessary to make this title available worldwide, select “All territories (worldwide rights).” This will allow customers from around the world to purchase your title on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.es, Amazon.it, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.com.br, Amazon.com.mx, Amazon.com.au, Amazon.ca, Amazon.nl, and Amazon.in.

If you don't hold worldwide rights to sell and distribute your title, select "Individual territories." Then, indicate the territories in which you hold rights. This will limit sales of your publication to the selected territories only. Below is a list of territories included in each Kindle Store:

• UK Kindle Store: United Kingdom (including Guernsey, Isle of Man, Ireland, Gibraltar, and Jersey)
• DE Kindle Store: Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and Switzerland
• FR Kindle Store: France, Monaco, Belgium, Switzerland, and Luxembourg
• ES Kindle Store: Andorra, Spain
• IT Kindle Store: Italy, San Marino, Vatican City, and Switzerland
• JP Kindle Store: Japan
• NL Kindle Store: Netherlands
• BR Kindle Store: Brazil
• MX Kindle Store: Mexico
• CA Kindle Store: Canada
• IN Kindle Store: India
• AU Kindle Store: Australia, New Zealand 

Customers located in the available territories not listed here can purchase your book from the US Kindle Store, or Amazon.com. The period of copyright protection varies among countries, so ensure that you indicate your territory rights accurately for public domain works.

If you are updating an existing title's territory rights, remember to publish your changes by clicking the publish button at the bottom of the page.

Unpublishing a Title

Begin at your Bookshelf and click the ellipsis button ("...") under the Book Actions menu next to the book you want to unpublish, and select "Unpublish."

Note: When you unpublish a title from the Kindle Store, it should become unavailable to buy within 24-72 hours; then become unsearchable from the Amazon storefront after a minimum of one week. It will not be available for purchase until you republish the item. Republishing a title after it has been removed from the Kindle Store requires approximately 12 hours.

To republish your title:

1. Return to your Bookshelf and click the ellipsis button ("...") under the Book Actions menu next to the book you want to republish.
2. Select "Edit book details."
3. Enter any changes you may have.
4. Click the button to publish your changes at the bottom of the page. 

Note: You can delete content, provided it is still in draft mode and has not yet been published to the Kindle Store.
