Why is my book not appearing on Amazon as paperback?

Hi, everyone. I have a book that was published this morning (roughly 15-17 hours ago). I made the ebook version of it on the Kindle store with no problem. But I keep checking Amazon and my paperback is not on there. Even though Createspace told me my book is ready. Any ideas? This is my first time using Createspace.

Whoa, Nelly! It can take up to a week to appear on Amazon, so be patient.

It depends how you search for it. The best method is to use the ISBN, since that appears to be automatically indexed, whereas other metadata obviously is not.

I was told that it won't be linked to the kindle version page until 3-5 days, the paperback will have its own page for now.

Re: Why is my book not appearing on Amazon as paperback?

I have never had a book take more than a couple hours to show on Amazon once I have approved the proof.  There seems to be something wonky going on because my last book took over 24 hours for the review process (usually takes under 24 hours) and now it's been over 24 hours and is still not appearing in Amazon search results.  I emailed customer support because out of over 30 books, it has never taken this long.  To be fair, they do say something like "your book will appear on Amazon within 2-5 days" or something like that.  Can't remember exactly.
