I have a short story, 7,700 words that I'm thinking of putting up on Amazon, for Kindle only. It is too short for their to be a print version, so it is my intent to simply sell it as a ninety-nine cent short. I've read the material on when one needs to buy an extended license and it seems to me that since it would never be printed and would only show up in a thumbnail, that it would not be required.
That being said, I'd rather find out for sure. I usually just use stuff from my own portfolio so I don't need to worry about it, but there is a photo I like here.
Thanks for the clarification.
p.s. I don't know why k i n d l e is showing up as a link. I didn't do it.

the best thing would probably be to contact istock support directly with this question.

I don't think you do need an Extended License (EL). You are using the image for a product design. Even if it was printed the print run would have to be massive (500k +) for you to need a EL. You don't need to worry about items for resale as that refers to prints (or t-shirts or mugs) which are primarily the image on something where as this is an attractive cover for you work.
However, as Nullplus says check with support just in case. Here is the link to EL needs and uses
