Hello,
Is there a calculation I can do to figure out how much money 20,000 pages read gives me?
I know it's calculated on a monthly basis - so going by last month, what would 20,000 pages read work out to be?
Thanks.
Mrs Julia Evans

If they're all read on the .com site try;

20,000 x $0.0044 = $88

The $.0044 (or just under one half of one cent) is what was paid out last month, but it has recently been as low as just over $0.0040 which would be $80.

Expect to get slightly less for UK and about a quarter of that for pages read on .IN

It does fluctuate though, from month to month.

Someone here always posts the approximate value for the previous month as soon as the figures are announced on the 15th of each month.

Hope that helps J

Since you mentioned a round number, you should know this: don't expect that to continue.

For books published over the past 7 to 10 days, there was a bug in setting the KENPC for some books. When that happens, KDP assigns a placeholder of 500 pages read each time somebody reads the book, regardless of how many actual pages were read. Sooner or later, they'll fix the problem and correct the numbers, though, so enjoy it while it lasts.
