Sales and Royalties Report

You can use this report to view units ordered and royalties earned during the timeframe selected on the dashboard. This report is part of the Sales Dashboard and you can download it by clicking "Generate Report" on the Sales Dashboard page. When you have qualifying sales in a given month, you will be paid approximately 60 days following the end of the calendar month during which applicable sales occur. The report contains two tabs – a "Royalty Report" tab and an "Orders Report" tab. Here's some more detail on the information provided on each tab:

Royalty Report Tab

This tab contains detailed royalty calculations to help you understand how royalties are calculated based on the "Net Units Sold" for your titles during the selected timeframe. An order becomes a sale once the payment is processed, which usually takes about a day. Royalty earned is based on sales.


 Royalty Tab Definitions

DateDate (in local time zone) on which order payments are processed

Units SoldEach row shows you daily sales totals by title for marketplace and transaction type

Net Units SoldNet Units Sold = Units Sold – Units Refunded. This is the basis of your royalty calculation.

Negative Royalties
Earned royalties are calculated based on your Net Units Sold. Since Net Units Sold = Units Sold – Units Refunded, it is possible to see a negative royalty if your "Units Refunded" exceed "Units Sold" for a particular day.

Orders Report Tab

This tab contains a summary of paid orders, pages read in Kindle Unlimited and the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, and free orders received for your title(s) during the selected timeframe. This is the information provided in the Units Ordered graph on your Sales Dashboard.
