KDP Select

Enrolling your books in our optional KDP Select program gives you the opportunity to reach more readers and earn more money. You can enroll a single book, your whole catalog or anything in between. Enrolling in KDP Select makes your book eligible for 70% royalty earnings on sales to customers in Brazil, Japan, India, and Mexico.

If you’re ready to enroll, select "Enroll in KDP Select" from the Book Actions menu next to your book on your Bookshelf. For more information about KDP Select Enrollment, visit our Help page.

If you make your book exclusive to the Kindle Store, which is a requirement during your book's enrollment in KDP Select, the book will also be included in Kindle Unlimited (KU) and the Kindle Owners' Lending Library (KOLL). You can earn a share of the KDP Select Global Fund based on how many pages KU or KOLL customers read of your book (learn how payments are calculated).

Enrolling in KDP Select also grants you access to a new set of promotional tools. You can schedule a Kindle Countdown Deal (limited time promotional discounting for your book) for books available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, or a Free Book Promotion (readers worldwide can get your book free for a limited time).

All authors and publishers, regardless of where they live, are eligible to enroll their books in KDP Select. Books with rights to be sold in marketplaces where the Kindle Owners' Lending Library is available will automatically be included in the relevant libraries upon enrollment.

The only books ineligible for enrollment are those for which you do not have exclusive rights for the primary content of the book (i.e., this content is in the public domain or others may also have the right to publish this content). Other factors, including royalty option, price, genre, etc., do not impact a book's eligibility. If you have questions about your book's exclusion from KDP Select, please write to KDP Support by clicking "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page.

When you enroll a book in KDP Select, you're committing to making the digital format of that book available exclusively through KDP while it's enrolled in the program.

All content enrolled in KDP Select must remain for sale through the Kindle Store only. If the digital version of your book appears to be available for pre-order, for sale, or for free elsewhere (such as on your website or blog, or a third party’s website), then it is not eligible for KDP Select. Adding new content (such as bonus content, author's commentary section, etc.) to a book that is available elsewhere will not satisfy the exclusivity requirements. See the KDP Select Terms and Conditions for complete exclusivity requirements.

However, you may choose to make up to 10% of your book available on other sites as a sample, as well as continue to distribute your book in physical format (including print on demand books), or in any format other than digital. You may also provide professional reviewers with a copy of your book via email for the purpose of editing, proofreading and helping with other quality improvements. See the KDP Select Terms and Conditions for more information. When you enroll a boxset in KDP Select, none of those books can be offered on another platform.

If we remove your book from KDP Select due to violation of the exclusivity requirements, you may re-enroll your book as soon as you ensure it is no longer available elsewhere in a digital format.

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.
