Buy Publications through Newsstand for Kindle Fire

There’s a world of periodicals out there, from magazines to newspapers, just waiting for you to explore them. Kindle Fire’s color display makes browsing through color magazines especially appealing.

If you tap Newsstand on the Home page of Kindle Fire, and then tap the Store button, you see several categories of items.


First, there are Free Trials displayed across the top. You can swipe right to left to scroll horizontally through these.

Below Free Trials, you see categories such as Featured Magazines, Featured Newspapers, and Fashion & Entertainment (though the categories might change on a regular basis).

You can tap the See All button above any category to see a more complete list of included items.

When you find the publication you want, follow these steps to buy or subscribe to it:

  1. Tap the item.

    A screen appears showing pricing, a description of the publication, and Subscribe Now and Buy Current Issue buttons.


  2. Tap Subscribe Now or Buy Current Issue.

    The button label changes to read Downloading. When the download is complete, the button label changes to Read Now.

  3. Tap the Read Now button to open the magazine.

    Note that the magazine is stored in your Amazon Cloud library, where you can read or download it to your Kindle Fire at a later time.
