Royalty types


Royalty Description
35% You will be paid based on the standard 35% royalty plan.
35% - promo You 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% - promo You 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.
