To open an Amazon Kindle Publishing account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) website at https://kdp.amazon.com and click on the “Sign up” button.
  2. Sign in to your Amazon account. If you don’t have an Amazon account, you’ll need to create one.
  3. Enter your name, email address, and password for your KDP account.
  4. Provide your tax information, including your tax identification number and any necessary forms.
  5. Fill in your bank account information: If you have a bank account in the US/UK etc, include your account number and routing number, so that you can receive payments for your book sales. If you don’t, choose the payment by check option.
  6. Complete the Tax Interview with your tax information.
  7. Once you have completed the registration process, you can start creating your book on KDP. Upload your manuscript, cover image, and any other relevant files.
  8. Set your book’s pricing, royalties, and other details.

      I love these guides on Kindle Direct Publishing.
      Is it possible to have person to person lessons or even more, constant guides on this platform?
      I am so grateful for guidance from these guides.
      I managed to publish my book.

      Hi, I have created an account on Amazon and setting up for KDP. There is a two step verification process where an OTP is sent first to my email which I received and filled in and this was followed by an OTP being sent to my number. This is where I am stuck, the system says OTP sent but on my end I have not received anything. I have rechecked my Kenyan number to be correct, tried resending OTP but does not work. What shall I do?

      • Hi Avnita,
        The OTP can take a while with the Kenyan number. It may show up an hour or two later. However, before that, if you have ever shopped with Amazon, not on KDP, but with amazon.com. They would have sent the OTP to the number you registered your amazon.com account to begin with. If not, then it is a delay, and the OTP message is only delayed. If it does not come at all, email them your issue.
