FAQ: Permafree on Amazon?

One of the great mysteries for beginning writers is how to get books up on Amazon permanently free, or ‘permafree’, because when you publish your book through KDP, you will get a notice that you have to put a price of 0.99 USD or higher on your book.

So, how do you get your books permafree on Amazon?

I have two permafree short stories on Amazon, iTunes, and Kobo, as ‘loss-leaders’ for my Amsterdam Assassin Series.

LOCKEDROOM  MICROCHIPMURDER

 

Here’s how I did it:

To get something to go permafree on Amazon, publish it at USD 0.00 on Kobo and iTunes, publish your book for 99 cents on Amazon and go to your book page. Under the Product Details, you find:

Would you like to give feedback on images or tell us about a lower price?

Click that link and provide the URL to the free book on iTunes/Kobo and the list price (0.00 USD). It helps if people other than the author report the lower price. If you’re a member of KindleBoards, they have a thread where you can post your book and report other people’s books, while they report your books.

That’s how I got Locked Room and Microchip Murder permafree on Amazon.
