Just curious if anyone received payment today. I received one payment today from my country, but not from any of the foreign countries.

It's a bank and postal holiday in the U.S., viz.: Memorial Day.

I got the CS and one Kindle payment in the bank although the bank recording dated them for May 30.

I have three payments showing (it is May 30 now) and one of them says AMAZONCOMB -- whazzat? Are the other-country stores being lumped together?

Good luck! -- NJ

I had a couple of my chapter series horror ebooks download on kindle and 100% of the pages read from those people who downloaded as a kindle member.
and I have not even seen a value % of what I should be making or getting for a commission or royalties.
No value shows on the Kindle website and nothing showing for a refund or return item either, but I don't have any of those listed so thats a good thing!
I am starting to think kindle is not so good and their mostly ripping authors off for self publishing books or ebooks through kindle !!
I went with a different self publishing website and I actually saw a true Sale for a ebook on Lulu.com !
and on nookpress.com too.
since kindle does not show sales reports or page earnings sales like they so call claim for earning % per-page read !!
I find that shady and fraud
and I will be reporting that in to them about what I seen so far, and reporting it to BBB and consumer reports and the fraud.org !!
cause what their doing is breaking their so called TOS agreement with us on sales reports for both page earnings and book/ebook sales

The final monthly report comes out around the 15th of the following month. Check that to see what your page reads earned. Amazon can't tell you what you earned until it knows, which it won't until a month is over and the numbers are calculated.

You'll get returns. Everyone does. And they will show on the reports (are you checking in the correct place for yours?).

I and thousands of others would disagree with you, since we do see sales from Amazon. Some see enough to be earning a living, and have for years.

It's not fraud or shady. It's people not reading the TOS and comprehending what the information means, therefore staying confused about how and when they're paid, and how to read their reports.

I received some payments on the 27th, and the rest on the 30th. All are accounted for where mine are concerned.

Are your books written in English? It does not seem to be your first language.
