@mk82, do you upload your book cover differently from your book or you design your book cover into your book.

1. font size 12
2. use default MS Word spacing.
3. Don't indent your paragraphs. use left justify. Leave one line between paragraphs. To test, copy a portion of
d writeup n paste it in notepad.

Sire, sorry for the beginners question, so do we upload the book cover 1st, then the book contents as follows or vice-versa in the same upload section?

And also, what if we upload 2 books at a time obviously with 2 covers and 2 ms word docs, I think kindle would arrange it properly (hope I'm right)?

Go to ur bookshelf n click on Add new title. You will see where to do everything u have been asking.
When u are through with the first book, go and click Add new title again to upload the next one.

@mk82: For taking this upon yourself and your promptness in addressing people's questions, it shows the reason why you are such a way blessed and I pray this is the beginning of real success in your life which shall know no bound in Jesus name, Amen. Keep it up and don't be discouraged.

To my question, the issue of payments, when exactly do they pay after one has reached the payment threshold either by ETF or Check? I mean the duration and when one will receive his payment? Please explain clearly. Thanks

KDP PAYMENTS
You will be paid 60 days after you reach the payment threshold according to d payment mode dat u choose (check or EFT).
Example if u reach d minimum payment in February, u will be paid end of April. The only lag time is when you are just starting. After ur first 60 days with KDP, u will continue to receive monthly payments as long as you can cross minimum payment level each month. Jan money is paid in March, Feb paid in April,April paid in June etc.

If you are receiving EFT, you will get a Remittance Advice in ur email once your payment is ready each month. for dis November, payment is on d 29th. Remittance Advice is not sent to those that are receiving checks.

EFT is the best. You get monthly notifications n there's no risk of ur check being lost in the post.

EFT - electronic fund transfer is for publishers with American or European bank accounts or other accepted countries. It means your royalty is sent directly into ur bank account. Nigerian banks are not accepted.

One way you can get around this is to get the payoneer.com card

I have a US card (not payoneer) which I use online to get all my earnings just like those in America and Europe.
It is what I have added now to my Kindle Account. The only thing left is to make the money grin.

You will be paid via check. you can then pay the check into your dom account. however, the process is slow so you may want to look into payoneer or graphcard.

Payoneer will solve your Amazon payment problem. Visit their website to get details.
I don't think Graphcard can be used for amazon payments because your name has to be on the check.

Post office is messing me up big time. I have applied for payoneer twice over 4 months now and I recieved none of them. Can I go ahead to upload my books and sort out payment details later?

Upload ur books immediately!
Payoneer card's arrival to Nigeria is 1-5 months because of our ancient postal system. All d cards u applied for will still come.
If ur books sell, ur money will accumulate with time n amazon will pay into ur payoneer account.You can then use $60 to order a new card thru DHL (if u can not wait any longer).
That is what I did.
