Amazon Opens Dutch Kindle Store, B&N Moves Into Author Services


Excerpt from the David Gaughran Blog:

"KDP has launched a local portal for Dutch writers and small presses. The opening of the Dutch Kindle Store also means the abolition of the regressive and unpopular Whispernet Surcharge in the Netherlands which added $2 onto the price of many e-books.

For those already publishing via KDP, your book is on sale in the Dutch Kindle Store without any further action needed at your end. You will earn 70% on sales between €2.60 (~$3.24) and €9.70 (~$12.08) – matching the terms of the other Euro-based Kindle Stores, and reversing an unwelcome trend where 70% royalties were only available if that title was enrolled in KDP Select (as is the case for Kindle Stores in Brazil, Japan, Mexico and India)."

I don't have a credit card, so I always relied on buying gift cards from people to be able to buy books from Amazon. The only thing I'm looking forward to is seeing if they add the Dutch iDeal payment option, which is the most used method here.

My bank provides 2 nifty gadgets, a Rabo Scanner and a Random Reader. I can use my debit cards to pay anything anywhere.

Is this kind of thing also common in the US?

Farah, yes common. Lately, though, people just use apps on their smart phones.

Yep, we have the app versions too. But I don't shop with my phone. I only use it to check my accounts or make quick transfers.
