Cleaning up for KDP Select

I've been widely selling my ebook through a number of stores, but I want to bring it all back to Amazon KDP Select for the time being.  What Createspace Distribution channels have to be turned off?  All of the Expanded?  I'm confused because I don't know if they're for the ebook or the print book.


Also, is there an easy way to make sure all my ebooks are unpublished except for Amazon?  I think I've only used Smashwords and Createspace, but I may be wrong. 



Thanks so much!

Re: Cleaning up for KDP Select

CS only handles paperbacks. It has no bearing on KDP Select, so you don't need to change anything here.


As to where else the ebook may be available, if you think you've removed it everywhere, you can contact KDP Customer Support and ask them to check. Tell them you're planning to enroll it in Select and want to make sure you won't violate the terms.

I think that, if Smashwords is the only place you've ever issued an epub edition, you just need to withdraw it from Smashwords and then allow time for it to disappear from retail listings.
