How often are bonuses updated?

Hi,
as I published my first book 2 days ago and have 3 sales today, I was wondering why the bonus report (or however you call this) is not updated. It sais that I haven't earned anything today, although there are 3 sales shown on the sales report.
Thank you!

If you're looking at the graph, those are orders. They don't turn into sales until the purchaser's credit card clears. Sometimes, if a card is declined, they never convert to sales. For the most accurate information, you should be looking at the month-to-date report.

If you have EFT, royalties are paid approximately sixty days after the end of the month in which the sales (not orders) are credited. Reading through the help pages that address payment and taxation might clear up your confusion.
