Anyone calculated per page royalty for October's fund? Is there one place where someone usually posts this?

Thanks!

Based on my quick calculation it's $0.00456 per page on .com.

(Unusually, it appears to be comparable for UK as well, allowing for today's exchange rate.)

Thank you, Julia! Can you tell me where you get the breakdown of the fund? (US vs UK and the total pages to calculate the royalty per page? I haven't been able to find it on the Amazon site...

You won't find it posted. You have to take the number the Zon posts and then do the math per your own sales.

Hi Danielle,

As Donna said, it's just a manual calculation.

Look at the Prior month's Royalties tab, which will tell you how much you got paid for KENP on each site. Then click on the 'old' reports Generate Report tab (I find that one easier to use). Add in a couple of filters to isolate the pages read for each site (or just add them up with a calculator!).

Devide the amount you received by the number of pages read, and Voila! That's the price per page.

Repeat for all the other sites if you have mutiple.

There are other screens which get you the information as well, so no doubt others have their own methods. I just find this one quickest.

J :)
