My ebooks have been up in Kindle for a month and a day and the numbers are interesting.
US books sold: 10
Now wait, I hear you say. At $7.99 a pop, with 70% royalty, that’s $55.93, what’s happening? Not all the books sell at that rate. Most go for the traditional 35% and no, Amazon doesn’t specify why. I also sold three copy on Amazon.de for £4.44 profit or there about ($5.45 USD) which is about $16 US so my total is lingering at $64.
The part that is annoying me right now is that the Kindle Store pays you 60 days after the first month where you make over $10. So July I made about $30, but I won’t see that money until October first, give or take. Does that seem odd to anyone else? If feels like they’re still a little mired in the old paper way of doing business.
I still get a grin seeing myself show up in a search for ‘WordPress Multisite’ on Amazon, though!
