Warning emails before termination of KDP account

The good thing about Amazon is that the organization will always send warning emails to you anytime you go against their terms of service in any way. Your account will only be terminated if you decide to change your ways or act on instructions from the emails sent to you.

Amazon does not just kick out the Amazon KDP account of authors, they will always warn you and warn you with several emails.


When Amazon terminate your Amazon KDP account: What do you do

Now when your Amazon KDP is terminated for any reason, I want you to check out this checklist and see if you can find any valuable advice: (Note: What you will read below are just our thoughts. It may not represent what Amazon thinks or wants).

  • You deserved what happened because you were warned several times.
  • You need to learn your lesson here.
  • While you can’t open two accounts as an individual but you can actually open one individual account and one for your publishing company. This is legal (this is subject to confirmation from Amazon so a simple email sent to support can give you the right information).
  • Register a firm and open an account for that firm on Amazon.
  • Now this involves a lot more work and preparation on your part. I believe it’s good for you to make you more disciplined.
