KENP Read but no royalties showing (slightly different to new thread below)

HI everyone,

I'm very new to this. I have done my homework but am just a little confused as to KENP.

The books I published have only been on KDP since April 16th. I see that pages have been read but nothing is showing up in the royalties. I did read the thread two down from mine but that person is not new so there was talk of last month's reports etc... having something to do with it but this is not the case with me because I simply wasn't here last month.

Can someone explain how the royalties show up and when, please? It would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
Lou

They won't show up until after you are paid. Anything sold in April won't be paid until the end of June. Two weeks later it will show up on 'paid'. It is confusing but the amount changes per page each month. Meanwhile on the main report page, there is a graph that shows the pages read. The left side drops off daily as any new are added on the right side of it.

There is a report called the "prior month" report. Because you have just started publishing on KDP, you don't have anything in the prior-month report. But you will. The April one will come out around May 15. This is the important report for your question.

The royalty amounts below the graph never show how much you earned from pages-read. This is true for everybody. This is because the amount varies every month, as Donna noted, so Amazon can't say exactly how much you've earned.

However, when the April prior-month report comes out, it will show exactly how much you earned this month from pages-read. (And you'll be paid that much at the end of June, if you have EFT.)

Read the thread in the General Questions forum, "Know your Reports & Sales." It will help you.
