KDP Select How To
How to enroll in KDP SelectTo enroll an eBook, click Enroll in KDP Select while you're entering your eBook details. To enroll an eBook that's already published:
- Go to Marketing
- In the KDP Select section, click on Enroll an eBook
- Select your eBook and click Continue
- Click Enroll
You can change your eBook details (royalty options, book descriptions, etc.) without affecting your enrollment in KDP Select. You can also unpublish KDP Select-enrolled titles at any time during the term and republish them on KDP later. However, they must remain exclusive through the remainder of the title's current 90-day participation period.
How to check my KDP Select enrollmentYou can confirm your eBook's KDP Select enrollment by following these steps:
- Go to your Bookshelf
- Click on the ellipsis button (“…”) under the KINDLE EBOOK ACTIONS menu next to the eBook you enrolled
- Choose KDP Select Info
You will see the start and end date of your KDP Select enrollment along with an option to automatically renew the eBook’s enrollment once the 90-day period ends.
How to renew KDP SelectFor your convenience, every eBook enrolled in KDP Select will be automatically renewed unless you opt out. If you don't want to renew:
- Go to your Bookshelf.
- Under the KINDLE EBOOK ACTIONS menu next to your book, click the ellipsis button ("…").
- Choose KDP Select Info. Under the KDP Select header on the screen that appears, you'll see the start and end dates of your current enrollment period.
- Click Manage KDP Select Enrollment
- Uncheck the box next to Automatically renew this book's enrollment. Canceling automatic renewal does not affect the eBook's enrollment in KDP Select for the current term.
If your KDP Select enrollment gets renewed, we'll still pay you a share of the current month's fund based on how many pages in Kindle Unlimited (KU) a customers read of your eBook. In addition, for each new term, you will receive the ability to run Kindle Countdown Deals or five days of Free Book Promotion for your eBook. You will continue to earn 70% royalty for sales to customers in Brazil, Japan, India, and Mexico as long as the 70% list price requirements are also met. A promotion (Kindle Countdown Deals or Free Book Promotion) can be scheduled on the day enrollment is renewed. Note that any unused Kindle Countdown Deals option or free promotion days will not roll over.
See our Help page for details on renewal timelines.
