Why not publish directly with Amazon?
There are two ways to publish on Kindle. You can sign up directly with Amazon, or you can use an eBook distribution service like BookBaby. The advantage of working with BookBaby is that you get access to the widest distribution network available for independent authors — including iBooks for iPad, and the Barnes & Noble’s eBook store for the Nook. And that’s just the beginning. BookBaby offers a wide array of services so that your publishing experience is a breeze. Our publishing experts will help you every step of the way, so that your book gets the attention to detail that it deserves.
Publish your book with BookBaby and we’ll ensure that your eBook sits on the same virtual shelf as New York Times’ best sellers, Pulitzer Prize winners, and time-honored classics.
What if my book is already published on Amazon?
If your eBook is only on Amazon, you're missing out on millions more potential readers for your eBook. BookBaby can distribute your eBook to many other online retailers across the globe, including iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and many more. In fact you can pick any combination of retail store distribution during our easy-to-use eBook sign up process.
How much do I get paid per eBook sale on Amazon?
- When an eBook priced between $2.99 and $9.99 is purchased by a customer with a billing address in the United States, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Switzerland, United Kingdom (including Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man), Amazon will pay you 70% of your average retail price for that month’s sales, minus a small delivery fee determined by the file size of your book.
- If customers outside of the aforementioned countries purchase your book, you will receive 35% of the purchase price (with no delivery charge).
If you price your book higher or lower than that suggested range (2.99-9.99), you keep 35% of all sales in all countries.
