How to manage Your KDP Account?

You may find that your Amazon account has so many options that it can be a little hard to know what’s what, which is why today we want to explain how to manage your Kindles and your content.

Managing your Kindles and their content from the Amazon website allows you to do many things you may not have known you could do. For example, you can unregister devices, you can reload content, you can add narration and many other valuable options.

To manage your Kindles and their content, first click the drop-down menu next to “Your Account,” then click “Manage Your Content and Devices” from the list.

You may need to sign in on the next page.

The “Manage Your Content and Devices” page is divided into three categories: “Your Content,” “Your Device,” and “Settings.”

Out of the three, “Your Content” has the content that you most want to use. For example, if you click on a title, you can move it to another device or delete it. You can also organize your content by books, music, documents, and more.

Select a title, in this case a book, then click the “Actions” button and the pop-up menu will show options other than the aforementioned distribution and deletion.

You can download the title and transfer it via USB, remove the furthest page read, and even add narration.

If you add narration, you’re essentially buying an audiobook. The narration will cost you more than the actual cost of owning the book and is provided by Audible.

On the “Your Devices” tab, you can manage your various Amazon devices, that is, the Kindle and Kindle mobile app(s).

One item to keep in mind is that you can deregister a device, which is important, for example, if you give or give back one of your Kindles to someone else or it’s lost or stolen.

Finally, on the “Settings” page, you will find a lot of different options for sorting. Of these, you can edit your payment method, meaning you can change your default 1-click payment method, as well as your country settings.

You can also create an Amazon Household, which allows up to two adults to curate content and share membership benefits. You can also create up to four profiles for your child.

If there are any subscriptions, you can manage them from the Settings page and you can also enable/disable device sync or Whispersync settings. This last item should only be disabled if you have multiple Kindles registered on the same account and you and someone else are reading the same book.

The reason for this is simple, every time you visit a title it will sync the device with the furthest page read. If you’re reading the same book with someone else on the same account, that book will sync across all devices, effectively causing you or others to lose their location.

You may have noticed in an earlier screenshot that some books have updates available. If you’d like to enable automatic book updates, any titles you own that receive new versions will automatically receive their updates.

If you want to see your Kindle in your native language, you can change it using the “Language Optimized Storefront” option.

Finally, if you want to send documents to your Kindle email, then you need to add them to the “Approved Personal Document Email List”. For example, let’s say a colleague wants to send you a document that you want to read on your Kindle by mail. You need to add their address to this list first to get it on your device.

If you own one or more Kindles, you should know how to manage them and their content. While you can do so from an actual device, as we’ve shown throughout this article, the Amazon website has a ton of configuration settings that give you maximum control over your devices and content.
