Kindle Direct Publishing was launched in November 2007 from the first Amazon Kindle device as an Amazon.com e-book publisher. Amazon originally launched Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), called the Digital Text Platform, which is used by authors and publishers to publish books directly to the Kindle Store.
Authors can upload documents in various modes of transport through Whispernet and charge a fee for their work in the amount of 0.99-200.00 US dollars. This document is available in 34 languages. In 2016, Amazon also added a paperback option to provide digital and print publications to independent publishers using print-on-demand technology. Amazon encourages authors to publish e-books and novels on the same platform.
