Upload and Preview eBook Content

We recommend deleting old book content files before uploading new ones. To upload your file:

  1. Sign in to kdp.amazon.com and go to your Bookshelf
  2. Click the ellipsis button ("…") under KINDLE EBOOK ACTIONS next to the book you want to update 
  3. Select "Edit eBook Content." This will take you to the Kindle eBook Content page
  4. In "Manuscript" section, click Upload eBook manuscript
  5. Find your manuscript file on your computer and click "Open"
  6. Once we finishing converting your file, you'll see a confirmation. This can take from five to seven minutes

Under the next step, "Kindle eBook Preview," choose one of the downloadable preview options. This will allow you to see what your eBook will look on different devices. The preview won't display details like title and author name; those details will be included in your eBook when it's published.

The Online Previewer shows how most books might appear on Kindle devices and apps, iPad, and iPhone*. This table summarizes the devices:

Tablet modePreview how your book might look on large devices like Apple iPad, Android tablets, and Fire tablets.
Phone modePreview how your book might look on phones like Apple iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7
E-Reader modePreview how your book might look on Kindle e-Readers like Paperwhite, Voyage, and Oasis.
*Online Previewer supports enhanced typesetting features when available using any of these three devices.

Want to download your preview file? If so, delete any older versions. To download your book preview file:

  1. In the Downloadable Preview Options of the "Kindle eBook Preview" section, click "Preview on your computer" or "Preview on your Kindle device"
  2. Follow the steps to download your file
  3. Transfer your book file to your Kindle with a USB cable. You can also preview your book file on your computer with our Kindle Previewer tool

Note: If you're uploading a textbook with interactive features, those features will not display in the Online Previewer or the Downloadable Previewer. You'll need to use the Kindle Textbook Creator previewer or download Kindle Previewer 3, which will also allow you to see how your book will look with enhanced typesetting conversion.
