To qualify for the 70% royalty option, books must meet these requirements:
- The author or publisher-supplied list price must satisfy list price requirements
- The list price must be at least 20% below the lowest list price for the physical book
- Titles must be made available for sale in all geographies for which the author or publisher has rights
The title will be included in a broad set of features in the Kindle Store, such as text-to-speech. This list of features will grow over time as Amazon continues to add more functionality to Kindle and the Kindle Store. Titles must also be enrolled in KDP Select to be eligible for 70% royalty on sales to customers in Brazil, Japan, Mexico, and India.
All books are still eligible for the standard 35% royalty as long as the title meets list price requirements. For full details, see the Pricing Page and Terms and Conditions.
