Now, the secret here and this is the thing that can be confusing for a lot of people who are looking to log in to Amazon Self-Publishing. It is that your paperbacks are done from the same site.
So even though it has Kindle as in Kindle Direct Publishing in the name, it is still the place you will go for your paperback. So, you will put your Publisher Paperback through Kindle Direct Publishing as well even though it says Kindle.
Same Login For All
That can be very confusing for some people who are looking to get their paperbacks. The other thing is that when you are going to get your books all in Audible and such, that will also have it's own the same login.
So you will use your Amazon login for those sites as well. All of these can be a little confusing when you're first getting started. Because when you go to amazon.com, you see the store but you don't see where you can upload your books.
