  • Estimated royalties earned from eBook, hardcover, and paperback sales in a single currency. The exchange rate at the time of payment will be different, so the estimate won't exactly match what you're paid.
  • For Kindle Unlimited, the line / bar shows an estimate of royalties earned from KENP read before the KDP Select Global Fund is announced. This is only an estimate and won't match your actual earnings. To see your actual earnings, check the Prior Months' Royalties and Payment report
