Leave the house for dinner and see a certain # of books sold, watch a friend buy it on her Ipad while sitting next to her, get home, and see no report of that sale......thoughts?

That it'll show up later?

It's not always instantaneous. It can take a few hours.

Maybe it takes a while for sales to show? That's my guess :)

Good sales tactic, take friend to dinner, make them buy book while watching them closely ;)

Yeah. Have them open it and start to read it while you watch.

Sometimes it takes a few days for sales to register. this happened to me before. Hang in there, it will show up.

At least twice a month, the reports slow down. On the 15th they run the reports for the previous month and at the end of the month, they pay royalties. Other times, the reports slow down when there is something on sale that gets thousands of downloads, such as their latest free ebook on how to prepare and upload to KDP.

Stuff just happens.
