Price Your Book

After you enter your book details and upload your manuscript and cover, you'll set your list price.



eBooks

Choose a royalty plan:
We offer two royalty plans for eBooks:
  • 35% royalty
  • 70% royalty*
To see the minimum and maximum list price for each royalty plan, check our list price requirements.

*Sales to customers outside of the 70% eligible territories will receive 35% of the list price. Learn more about eBook royalty options.

Note: If you indicated in the "Publishing Rights" step that your book is a public domain work, it's ineligible for the 70% royalty option.


Set list prices
We offer two options for setting your eBook’s list price:

Option 1 Option 2
Based on primary marketplace:

Choose your primary marketplace and set your list price in the currency of that marketplace. For the other marketplaces, we'll automatically convert the price to our available currencies.

Note: eBooks with prices that match in one marketplace may not always match in other marketplaces. This is due to variations in taxes, delivery costs, and other operating costs.
Enter the list price for each marketplace:

Enter a specific amount by marketplace and available currency. The price you enter must meet our requirements, which depend on marketplace, royalty option, and file size. In certain marketplaces, the list price displayed to the customer will include local Value Added Tax (VAT).

Notes:
  • In the European Union, VAT will be charged for books sold on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.es, and Amazon.it. The VAT rate applied depends on the customer's country of residence. If VAT applies, Amazon will automatically add the applicable VAT rate to your selected list price, and will then display the retail price (including VAT) on your book's detail page.
  • In Australia, the applicable GST applies to books sold on Amazon.com.au.
