Your offer price can change based on various factors which may include but are not limited to free promotions, Kindle Countdown Deals, MatchBook or when we sell your book at a lower price to match a third party's price for a digital or physical edition of the book, or Amazon's price for a physical edition of the book.
Average File Size - Average file size* of your book over the specified time period
Average Delivery Cost - Average delivery charge* for your book over the specified time period

About transaction types and royalty types
Here is an overview of the Transaction and Royalty types. For details on royalty types, please review the Pricing Page.
MatchBookYour book was sold as a part of the Kindle MatchBook program.
Free - Price MatchIn order to meet a price offered elsewhere online, your book was sold at no charge, so this transaction produced no revenue.
Free – PromotionYour book was offered in a Free Book Promotion.
Kindle Countdown DealsYour book was sold during a Kindle Countdown Deals promotion.
Kindle Edition Normalized Pages (KENP) ReadPages of your book read by customers through Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.
StandardYour book was sold as a standard Kindle book transaction.

35%You will be paid based on the standard 35% royalty plan.
35% - promoYou will be paid 35% of the promotional list price. For example, if your book has a regular list price of $9.99, for a promotional list price of $8.99, you will earn 35% of $8.99, or $3.15.
70%You will be paid royalty based on the standard 70% royalty plan.
70% - promoYou will be paid based on the 70% royalty plan, using the promotional list price to determine the amount. For example, if your book has a regular list price of $4.99, and one of your promotional prices is $1.99, you will earn 70% * ($1.99 - $0.15 * file size), even if the promotional list price is below the 70% royalty minimum outlined on the Pricing Page.
n/aSince this transaction produced no revenue, the royalty rate does not apply.

*Because List Price, File Size, Offer Price, and Delivery Charge can all change at any time, copies of the same book sold throughout the course of the specified time period may have had different values for each of these attributes. Therefore, average values are displayed.
