[Update]: Smashwords has been bought by Draft2digital and Draft2digital is anti-Nigerian. The company deleted Nigerian authors accounts with Smashwords without notice (painful). Read more about the Smashwords and Draft2digital merger.

If you’ve written an ebook, the fastest and cheapest way to get it distributed quickly everywhere is to pair Smashwords with Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). As a distributor, Smashwords will distribute your ebook to the most important major retailers and library platforms, except Amazon. After you upload to Smashwords, also upload your ebook to Amazon.

Although Smashwords’ primary business is ebook distribution to retailers and libraries, they’re unique in that they also operate their own small ebook store where authors earn royalties up to 80% of list price.

You should note that if your ebook is going to be approved for Smashwords global distribution it must be well formatted according to their requirements.
