New Australian Amazon Kindle Website!

Posted: 13/11/2013 in Uncategorized

In breaking news, as of today Australia has its own Amazon kindle website.  What does this mean for me I hear you ask? Well, if you live in Australia and purchase e-books from Amazon you can now do so in Australian dollars rather than US dollars.

For Australian authors it also means that we are able to receive our royalty payments considerably faster through direct EFT into an Australian bank account, rather than waiting six months plus for a cheque from the US.  As an added bonus Amazon has agreed to pay authors a 70% royalty on sales made here in Australia, rather than the 35% royalty previously paid on these sales through their US website.

The new Australian Amazon kindle website is: http://www.amazon.com.au

(Oh, and yes your old amazon.com login and password will work).
