MONTH TO DATE FIGURES DO NOT CORRESPOND WITH DASHBOARD FIGURES

Today being the 2nd December I checked my sales for yesterday. To my surprise the dashboard said that I had sold only half the number of books that appeared in the Month to Date list for December (63). As there were only three books sold on 2nd December I am puzzled that the two don't seem to correlate. Is this a common issue?

The dashboard figures just give you a rough idea. Pay more attention to the month-to-date. Because there is a lag between "orders" (the graph) and actual paid-for sales (the month-to-date report), some of your m-t-d sales may have been on the graph in late November.

That said, a lot of people have reported a blip of sales showing up around now. Amazon had some glitches last week that they are now sorting out.

Sounds like you're doing very well--congrats, but try not to SHOUT in all caps.
