Hi everybody
How are royalty rates applied.
sometimes i get 35% sometimes 70% and i have no clue why it varies
At first i used to get 35% but once i had someone from germany buy the book and i got 70% so i though that for the EU market your get 70% but lately i got 70% on a purchase from amazon US. Does anyone have a clue?
thx!

The answer I saw on another thread, and which makes sense to me, is this: If the country has its own Zon, you'll get your 70%. If the country does NOT, and the purchaser has to get the e-book via Amazon.com, then, because delivery charges may apply, you only get 35%.

Someone will correct me here if I'm wrong, I'm sure. :)

There are millions of threads on this. 70% is for Amazon.com bought in US.35% is for Amazon.com sales for non US countries that don't have their own store. It should list this in the FAQ....
