Paperback Distribution Rights

During title setup, you choose the territories where you hold publishing rights. If you already set up a Kindle eBook, KDP uses the territorial rights you chose as a default for your paperback. You can change the territories if needed.

Worldwide rights

If you're sure you have all rights necessary to make your book available worldwide, choose All territories (worldwide rights). If your book is your original content and you've never published it before, you most likely have worldwide rights. Choosing "Worldwide rights" will allow customers from around the world to buy your paperback on:

  • Amazon.com
  • Amazon.co.uk
  • Amazon.de
  • Amazon.fr
  • Amazon.es
  • Amazon.it
  • Amazon.co.jp
  • Amazon.ca
  • Amazon.com.au

Note: Paperback publishing is not yet available for titles written in Japanese. KDP publishers can, however, publish paperbacks written in the languages we support on amazon.co.jp.

Individual territory rights

KDP paperback availability may not always align with eBook availability. If you don't hold worldwide rights to sell and distribute your title, choose Individual territories. Then, choose the territories in which you hold rights. Customers will be able to buy your books from Amazon marketplaces depending on the territories where you have rights to distribute. KDP paperbacks are available for purchase on:

  • Amazon.com
  • Amazon.co.uk
  • Amazon.de
  • Amazon.fr
  • Amazon.es
  • Amazon.it
  • Amazon.co.jp
  • Amazon.ca
If you make your book available in either the United States or Canada, it will be eligible for sale in both countries.

You may find a detail page created on Amazon.in to reflect the title availability, which are listed by third party sellers.

Although Amazon.com.au is not a supported marketplace for KDP, your book may be available for purchase through the Global Store in Amazon.com.au. KDP do not guarantee its availability and we are working continuously to improve our Customer experience.

To make your KDP paperback available in any one of the European Union countries and regions listed below, it must be eligible for sale in all of them. If you don't have rights in any one of those countries/regions, please don't choose any one of them as a territory.
