According to this https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2GF0UFHIYG9VQ
you can do it as PDF but they almost always have conversion issues.
Also a few authors I know who publish on Amazon have told me not to
bother trying it for the same reason.
ePUB is also one of the supported formats but we would want to test it
using Kindle Gen first to ensure there were no conversion issues.
