Amazon Kindle Self-Publishing 實體書上架教學篇|印刷寄送開銷全部Amazon買單.... - Wise Library 1985

Amazon實體書強大魅力點:作者(製作者本人)不須要負擔任何印刷和寄送的開銷,Amazon會幫你估算黑白或彩色的印刷費用,提供許多書籍尺寸做選擇,甚至是印刷細節(譬如出血與否等等)。

 

估算好印刷成本,會由作者自行決定販售的價格,Amazon會依照你的定價幫你試算出每本書的入賬金額。分潤有35%和70%會有不同的售價範圍的設定

 

實體書的審核約三天(我碰到的情況是一天內就處理完成,之前第製作封面的過程有改標題,如果封面的標題與一開始設定的標題不同,Amazon工作人員會寫信通知,很專業)。

 

比較特別的部分:電子書還會幫你校稿看看有沒有spelling error,這一點實體書就沒有這個部分。

 

Amazon 上架最強大的吸引力是可以同時幫你製作電子書和實體書,Amazon實體書輸出接受PDF檔。電子書則是word檔即可。電子書只需要封面即可,不需要製作書背和封底。

 

說一下國內的部分,國內印刷資本高,單本影印店印刷費用可能高於三百多元,找印刷廠大量輸出,單次需要印五百本起跳,如果要以量制價單一本書就需要六位數的印刷費,這還沒有算書店上架費和經銷等費用。所以,還是Amazon最好了。


若順利上架,也會特別寫信通知你書籍已經上架了!比較特別的是:你的書,在Amazon上架之後,也有機會在國外其他網站第三方的平台出現幫忙販售你的書籍(這一點我沒有收到特別通知,但有發現自己的書有在Amazon以外的平台被販售)

 

還有,一點,就是收款的部分!差點忘了說,很花時間,因為選項裡面沒有台灣(所以我後來是用我去澳洲打工度假那年申請的帳戶去做資料填寫)日本的帳戶是可以的(有想過要研究日本開戶的要求或門檻)所以,如果其他人有更聰明的方法再幫忙留言分享!

 

以下是他們的通知信全文

▲(成本估價)黑白和彩色實體書的價格,相差數倍吧~我的情況是這樣(一旦你選擇黑白印刷,之後上架後,就再也不能選擇彩色印刷了,即便你上傳的內容是彩色也是一樣!!!!)

 

▼彩色印刷,系統要計算你用了多少彩色墨水或者圖片解析度有沒有達報標準等等,所以系統會花一點時間去run. 

▼▲彩色印刷估價真的是所有流程當中系統跑最久的區塊,其他像是上傳PDF檔都挺快的。但完全可以理解。系統很貼心的部分是會不斷告知你目前的進度。

我選擇的是比較常見的6×9 我選擇右邊的邊界多一點

實體書成功上架後,可以訂購 可以訂購自己的實體書,價格就是成本價而已
