Enter Pricing Information

After you enter your book details and upload your manuscript and cover, you'll set your list price. Browse the topics below to learn more about entering pricing information for eBooks and paperbacks.



eBooks

Step 1

Choose a royalty plan

Under the "Royalty and Pricing" section, choose a royalty plan: 35% or 70%. Check the list price requirements by royalty plan. You can choose a plan for each of your books. When entering your book's details, did you indicate in the "Publishing Rights" step that your book is a public domain work? If you did, it's ineligible for the 70% royalty option. Also, sales to customers outside of the 70% eligible territories will only receive 35% of the list price. Learn more about eBook royalty options.

Step 2

Set list prices

You have three options for setting your list price:

Option 1
Choose your primary marketplace and set your list price in the currency of that marketplace. We'll automatically convert the price to our available currencies:

MarketplaceCurrency
Amazon.co.ukBritish Pounds (GBP)
Amazon.de, .fr, .es, .it, .nlEuros (EUR)
Amazon.co.jpJapanese Yen (JPY)
Amazon.com.brBrazilian Real (BRL)
Amazon.caCanadian Dollar (CAD)
Amazon.inIndian Rupees (INR)
Amazon.com.mxMexican Pesos (MXN)
Amazon.com.auAustralian Dollars (AUD)

If you choose this option, books 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.

Option 2
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. You can't set your book's list price as free. In certain marketplaces, the list price displayed to the customer will include local Value Added Tax (VAT). Learn more.

Option 3
Use KDP Pricing Support (Beta). This optional service shows the impact of changes in KDP book prices based on number of books sold and author earnings. You might consider this information when setting or updating your book's list price. Learn more.

We reserve the right to set the retail price we charge for books you publish with us. We may offer your book at a price below your list price. Here are two examples of when this could happen:

  • The price at which a competitor sells your book is lower than your list price.
  • The price at which we sell a physical edition of your book is lower than your list price.
How does this affect your royalties?

  • If you chose the 70% royalty option, your royalties will be calculated off this offer price for sales that qualify for the 70% royalty option.
  • If you chose the 35% option, you'll be paid off the original list price you chose.
Note: Your book's price may vary by country or region as extra taxes or operating costs may apply. For more information about list price conversion, VAT, royalties, and Delivery Costs, see:

Paperbacks

Step 1

Set list prices

You have two options for setting your list price:

Option 1
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:

MarketplaceCurrency
Amazon.co.ukBritish Pounds (GBP)
Amazon.de, .fr, .es, .it, .nlEuros (EUR)
Amazon.co.jpJapanese Yen (JPY)
Amazon.caCanadian Dollar (CAD)

When you enter a list price, the grid will update automatically and show your estimated royalty for each marketplace. If you choose this option, books 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.

Option 2
Enter a specific amount by marketplace and currency. You can set list prices by marketplace as long as they're higher than the minimum list price (based on Printing Cost / Royalty Rate) and lower than the maximum list price of 250 USD (Amazon.com), 250 EUR (EU marketplaces), 30,000 JPY (Amazon.co.jp), or 350 CAD (Amazon.ca).

Note: 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.

Step 2

Submit your paperback

To submit your book for publication, click the Publish Your Paperback Book button at the bottom of the page. To change your list price:

  1. Go to your KDP Bookshelf.
  2. Click the ellipsis button ("") under the PAPERBACK ACTIONS menu next to the book you want to update.
  3. Choose Edit paperback rights & pricing. For published paperbacks, choose Edit print book pricing.
  4. In the "Pricing & Royalty" section, make the changes.
  5. Click the Publish Your Paperback Book button at the bottom of the page.
