How much does it cost to publish an ebook on Amazon?

Anyone may publish on Amazon for free. All you have to do is set up a Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) account and submit your book. Once you've published, you're up against other authors. Amazon had released 2 million books by the end of 2019. Of these, 100,000 were new titles released each month.

You can make money from your ebooks two ways: through advertising or with affiliate links. With affiliate links, if someone buys something through your link, you'll receive a percentage of the sale. With advertising, you pay each time someone clicks on an ad that takes them to your book's page. There are three types of ads: affiliate programs, product reviews, and sponsored posts.

Affiliate programs are made possible through partnerships between retailers and publishers. If you write good content and provide a significant audience, some retailers will agree to pay you when people click on their links and buy products. Some popular programs are Amazon's Associates Program, which pays out approximately 10 percent of sales price; B&N Affiliates, which pays out 5-10 percent; and iTunes Affiliates, which pays out 20%-40% of the sale price. You sign up for these programs like any other online business and then whenever someone clicks on a link or purchases an item through your link, you get a share of the profit.
