Authors and publishers around the world can receive a 70 percent royalty, net of delivery costs, on the sale of their books to Canadian customers. For more information about the terms, visit http://kdp.amazon.com.
Additionally, Amazon announced a name change for the service previously known as Kindle Digital Text Platform, or DTP. This popular Kindle self-publishing platform will be known as Kindle Direct Publishing. All former DTP websites will direct rights holders to the new Kindle Direct Publishing homepage: http://kdp.amazon.com.
"Our 70 percent royalty option has proven very popular in both the United States and the United Kingdom, and we're excited to extend it for sales to Canadian customers," said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. "We've also changed the name of our service from Kindle Digital Text Platform to Kindle Direct Publishing, which we think highlights its mission: offering authors and publishers a fast and easy service to sell books on Kindle worldwide."
Kindle Direct Publishing is a fast and easy self-publishing tool that lets anyone upload and publish their books for sale in the Kindle Store (www.amazon.com/kindlestore). To learn more about Kindle Direct Publishing, visit http://kdp.amazon.com or e-mail [email protected].
