Re: [KDP Paperback] Some early results

Didn't think it would be smooth sailing for them. Thanks for the update, good to know they are working on the problem at least. Never know, may have some back-royalties coming your way? Don't hold your breath, though.

Seasons greetings and best tidings to all. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday and hope for a successful 2019. May best-sellers leak from your keyboards and give you the voice you most desire. I have a lovely 38 degrees Celsius to look forward to on Christmas day here in little old Moulamein, Au...

Re: [KDP Paperbacks] Very low sales compared to Createspace?

As I mentioned in my own thread on the subject, I have experienced the exact opposite. I have sold more paperbacks in the last two months through KDP than in the last two years with CS. Online sales, that is. Most of my PB sales come from local sales of author copies. I have noticed that you can app...

Re: [INTRODUCTION] Complete noob to the forum

G'day Craig, welcome to the forum. We are all commiserating with the death of CS. For us in Australia, more so, as we are no longer able to order our proof or author copies direct from the states. I am in the process of moving my small collection over to Ingram Spark. Nice to see another member from...

Re: [KDP proof] 'Not for Resale' banner

Haven't ordered one from KDP yet but that sounds way over the top compared to CS proofs. Defeats the purpose somewhat to obscure the cover we are trying to proof as well as the inner stuff.

Re: [KDP Paperback] Some early results

That doesn't sound right. I was always under the impression that if they discounted your book, that your royalty would remain the same, that the discounted part would be taken from their share alone? I would be asking them about that if it happened to me.

[KDP Paperback] Some early results

Not sure what is causing it but I am experiencing a few sales of paperbacks online recently. In the last two months I have sold more paperbacks online through KDP than in the two years I was with CS! Mind you, we are talking very low numbers here. I usually only sell paperbacks through local distrib...

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Should have forked out for my own ISBNs at the beginning. You at least have the option of remaining with KDP for your paperbacks. As KDP do not ship to Oz, I have no options but to transfer my catalogue to IS. If I cannot purchase author copies at a discounted rate, I may...

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

I thought that you had transferred your catalogue to IS? I am about to publish my first book with them.

Re: [Satisfaction Guarantee] for KDP Print?

Like you Dan'l, I was unable to find any satisfaction guarantee listed anywhere. I will say, though, that there is a contact us button on the KDP site and every time I have contacted them over something, they have responded within 24 hours like they say they will.
