How can I get my books onto Comixology?
For creators that don't already have their books available on Amazon, they need to upload the books through KDP in order to make them available for purchase on the brand-new Amazon.com storefront. Any comic you publish to KDP will be available to read on the Comixology app.
Publishing on KDP comes with many features Submit does not offer, including:
- Get to market fast. Your comics on Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) that meet KDP guidelines can be published on the Amazon website in as little as 72 hours. You can find more information about KDP timelines here.
- Get access to KDP’s royalty reporting dashboard, where sales reports can be generated with just a few clicks.
- Add Guided View to your comics with Kindle Create. You can now make changes to your comics at any time and create your own Guided View.
- Publish in digital and print. Use KDP to print your digital comics.
- Group by series. KDP now supports creating eBook series.
Books published through Comixology Submit are longer be available for sale unless you republish them on KDP.
