Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world. Amazon's Kindle store features a wide range of Kindle ebooks to satisfy your love of reading. It comes with the benefit of being available for almost any device, not just the Kindle e-reader. Amazon has mobile apps for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and more, and synchronizes your available books across all of them. The bookstore itself features more than a million books in a vast selection of genres, magazines, and blogs, many of which are completely free. The Kindle store also offers a wealth of new releases and bestsellers and each day they unveil new Kindle Daily Deals for adults and young readers (up to 80% off).

IMPORTANT:

The titles can be uploaded by Enhanced or Standard plan, Enhanced being the default. If the title matches the conditions of the Enhanced plan, then it is used, resulting in 50-60% royalties.

If the title cannot be sold under the Enhanced plan, then Standard is used if the "Use Standard plan where Enhanced not available" switch is on. If it is off and the Enhanced plan is not available for the title, then it won't be uploaded to Amazon.
