Payment logic and abbreviations not clear

Dear all,

I had a look at my "historical Report" and payment Report over the past years and I do not understand the logic behind.

e.g. why should I receive 59,09 EUR for 8 "KOLL Borrow" and only 1,53 EUR for 1 "KOLL Borrow" (instead of 7,38 EUR, i.e. 59,09EUR/8)?

KOLL Borrow / Royalty (US)/ Royalty (EUR)
1 0,00 0,00 1,53
8 0,00 0,00 59,09
5 9,00 0,00 26,83

And I do not understsand all abbreviations and special rules behind them as well.
Where can I find in my contract this Information?

Can you help?

Thank you

Notjohn

I don't use Kindle Select, so I can't answer your question, except to say that I have been doing this for ten years and always have been paid what I was owed. So my advice is not to worry about it.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

If you use Select, you're paid per page read. Simple as that. Click the "KDP Select" link at the top of this page to learn about how the system works.

Everything is explained in the hundreds of detailed help pages provided by KDP. I'm chagrined by the number of newbie writers who can't be bothered to read, study and profit by them. Evidently, time is better spent crying out while ensconced in a warm cocoon of ignorance.
