Kindle Unlimited

Kindle Unlimited (KU) is a subscription program where customers can read as many eBooks as they like and keep them as long as they want, for a monthly subscription fee. They don't need to be Amazon Prime members. When you enroll in KDP Select, your books are automatically included in Kindle Unlimited. Your books will still be available for anyone to buy in the Kindle Store, and you'll continue to earn royalties from those sales like you do today.

  • Requisite: eBook enrollment in KDP Select
  • Format: KDP eBook
  • Marketplace: all KDP marketplaces
  • Benefits:

To be included in Kindle Unlimited (KU), you must meet the KDP Select requirements and enroll your book in KDP Select.
If you do not want your eBook(s) in KU, you have the option to remove your eBook from KDP Select at the end of your enrollment.

How readers find Kindle Unlimited books
When customers subscribe to Kindle Unlimited (KU), they'll see a badge next to your enrolled eBook indicating it is available in KU. They can also visit Amazon's Kindle Unlimited page and see available eBooks there.

You'll receive a share of the KDP Select Global Fund as individual customers read pages of your eBook for the first time.

Abonnement Kindle

On December 9, 2015, Kindle Unlimited changed slightly in France. Don't worry; these changes do not impact your royalties. It is now called "Abonnement Kindle."

According to the new system implemented following the recommendations of the book mediator, subscribers residing in France get reading credits when paying their subscription. These credits are "mutualized" among all subscribers residing in France, which allows all subscribers living in France to read a large number of ebooks included in their Kindle Subscription.

In the context of this new system, authors and publishers established in France have to set a price per reading unit (on KDP, per page read) for their ebook included in "Abonnement Kindle." You can enter this price in your KDP account.

These changes are the result of a request from the book mediator regarding the ebooks subscription services in France, and only concerns authors and publishers established in France. KDP authors and publishers not established in France don’t need to set a price per page for their eBooks included in our eBooks subscription programs.

The royalties of KDP authors and publishers based in France do not vary based on the price per page read set. KDP authors and publishers established in France are paid a share of the KDP Select Global Fund, as are all KDP authors and publishers.

To set a per-page price:
  1. Go to your Bookshelf.
  2. Click the ellipsis button ("...") under the KINDLE EBOOK ACTIONS menu next to each book enrolled in KDP Select.
  3. Select KDP Select Info.
  4. Enter your price information in the window that appears.
