Amazon to merge CreateSpace and KDP

Amazon has announced that its print-on-demand platforms CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) will merge, reports the Digital Reader.

Authors are being asked to move their books from CreateSpace to KDP, and Amazon has launched a help page on the KDP website to explain how the merger will affect authors.

Initially a DVD and CD production service, CreateSpace was acquired by Amazon in 2005 and later took on print-on-demand services. Amazon launched KDP in July 2016 and opened for a public beta test early last year.
