Amazon Kindle Sign Up for Non-US Self-Publishers

I have had quite a number of authors ask me about publishing their books using the Amazon Kindle digital platform. For US authors, it is a great option, but many authors outside the US are confused as to whether they can use it. For a time, I was also convinced that non-US citizens could not use it because they could not provide a US bank account and tax number.
Well, you can publish through Kindle from anywhere as long as you have an Amazon account. Go here, sign in, and then create a Kindle Direct Publishing account. When you come to the section about your address, fill it in manually, rather then using the auto prompts, and the sign up process will bypass the section for providing US tax information. You will then be assigned a publisher code and taken to the content upload section.
