Hello,
I have a client who wants to sell an ebook.
Client has already converted to Kindle and wants to sell on a website too. What format would be best?
Is it even possible to sell Kindle files?

Thanks!

I would check the EULA for amazon, But I believe licenses are nontransferable, so No you can’t resell them is my bet.

If you are selling the book through kindle you are giving kindle publishing rights to that book, and therefore if the person tries to sell the book in another format he is breaking his agreement with Kindle and that would be a violation and the person could be prosecuted for selling it in another format.

Hi web tracker
great answer, thanks!
So if a person wants to sell that same thing on a website the only way would be to implement a link to Amazon,,,?

Thanks!

yes that is correct. You will get paid for how many people hit the link and then buy the kindle book.

Hi web tracker,

just learning that there are two possibilities within the Kindle publishing program. The one you refer to is the SELECT option within the Kindle Direct Publishing. The standard one does not seem to have these limitation of exclusiveness.
