Langton Distribution out of UK has my paperback for sale along side the regular amazon sales choice. What does this mean for me as far as payment?

If they get an order, they order it at a discount price and you get paid at the distributor level.

If someone buys a book, they'll order a copy and have it drop-shipped to the customer, for which you'll get your contracted royalty after it's processed. If no one buys a copy, you won't get a royalty. It's a common practice for booksellers to list books for sale. You could, of course, do what other newbies here have done with this and other companies -- complain vociferously and threaten the bookseller, in which case the bookseller will think your book not worth the trouble and delist the book, eliminating the possibility of a sale. It's not a course of action I would suggest, but, obviously, others feel differently about such things.
