    No.

    I assume,.... that  as yet  you are stil in the early planning stages.

     

    If you want to publish both free books and paid books, you will need two IDs/ accounts.

    Also you will need to open an iTunesConnect account for each ID and if you wish to sell your books you will need a USA tax EIN number.   Whatever thoughts you have about your tax status in yur home country or the logic of Apple having this requirement,  you will not progress unless and until you have the EIN number issued.

    Its not difficult and takes around 10- 15minuutes  on a phone call. All the details are availble on this forum if you need help on that matter.

    I publish my book as a free book. Still, do I need USA tax EIN number? Moreover, I am not a US citizen. What can ı do in this situation?

    You  do not need an EIN for FREE books.

    you have an ID already which  you can  use , but it may be better to open a new ID and email just for your Free Books.

     

    Open an iTunesC onnect account.

    Download iTunesProducer

     

    Create your free book to comply with the review team/iBookstore requirements and  Publish your  book.
