Standard and Enhanced plan
Amazon has two pricing plans available for users, the Standard and the Enhanced plans. The Enhanced plan makes it possible to receive 70% of royalties (60% for users still in the revenue share plan) for books that are priced between 2.99 USD and 9.99 USD, while the Standard plan (books that have a price outside of this range) only allows 35% of royalties (25% for revenue share users).
To provide higher royalties to our users, the default option on PublishDrive is the Enhanced plan.
If you agree to receiving a lower amount of royalties in exchange for keeping your price below 2.99 USD or above 9.99 USD, you can ask us to apply the Standard plan where it is possible on the Stores and imprints page.
Free Book Pricing Option
Amazon doesn't accept free submissions. Free books will be sent to Amazon at a price of 0.99 USD. If your book is available in a major store for free, Amazon may price match, but we need to request it directly. Please let us know if you want your book to be free on Amazon and we will make a request.
Freely available content policy
Amazon doesn't allow publishers to sell books in the Kindle store where the full content is freely available online. To publish in Kindle store, please make sure that no more than 20% of the book is available online for promotional purposes. If more than 20% of a book is available online for free, Amazon might pull the book from distribution.
