    Hi , I want to start selling my own ebooks ( they are Manuals on how to do diferent things , like formatting your own computer )

    But , can i do it without IBN or ISBN on the ebook?

    I was thinking to make a Wordpress blog with seo plugins and sell them via paypal , but i want a plataform like amazon supporting me.

    Any ideas / thoughts ?

    Good idea, I don't think you could get much money though. Worth a try though, I would just type the eBook in a .pdf file and send it to the same e-mail address as your received the payment from.

    Convert your book to the Kindle format and put it on Amazon. Very easy to do and if you Google "kindle format" and "selling kindle books on amazon" then you'll find all the information that you need for free.

    Why dont you use shopping cart software provided by big comments etc like companies.Does it also require you to enter IBN or ISBN?

    Ok, from memory, you can type anything in there and it will be used by Amazon as the number for your book.

    I may be wrong as I've not listed a Kindle book on there for a whole.

    Make your website and use a shopping cart plugin or autoresponder to sell the big books you really want to sell.
    Create smaller ebooks with a few good tips in them and sell them on kindle for cheap. Recommend the bigger books and link to the site in the kindle book.
    Pump out lots of little kindle books and use the promotional "KDP Select" platform to give them away often.
