Guide to Issue eBook on Amazon

Step 1: Create an account

Step 2: Format your eBook

If you want to sell your ebook on Amazon, you must make sure that your ebook format is accessible on the Kindle platform. It supports following file formats.

Unencrypted Mobipocket(.mobi and .prc): This format is an ideal format. The Kindle-specific file format is created from it.

Unzipped EPUB: You can set your ebook format in this format. So it's available to read on more than just the Kindle.

Plain Text: It's an ordinary format.

Microsoft Word .doc File: Definitely usable, but with some complications.

Zipped HTML: When you use this format, you need to take great attention.

Adobe PDF: This is the poorest option. You had better off to use third party utility to convert PDF into a more suitable format like HTML.

We suggest you to convert your ebook to either .mobi or HTML.

Step 3: Upload your ebook

If you have logged into the DTP system, you will see a "Add a New Title" button. Click on it and enter all the information it requires. You’ll need to provide your book file and a description of the work, important publication data and an assurance that you have a right to publish the book, a decision about whether or not to enable DRM, and a cover/product image, which is important to appear on the product page in the Kindle store.
