New Sales Dashboard and Royalty Report
We've added a new Sales Dashboard to the KDP Reports page to give you up-to-date reporting of paid, borrowed and free orders as they are placed in Kindle stores worldwide. The new dashboard also helps you track royalties earned as payments are processed for these orders.

With the new Sales Dashboard you can:

  • Track orders as they are placed. The dashboard graph provides you with daily trends for your titles as orders are placed in Kindle stores worldwide.
  • Track royalties as payments are processed. The dashboard displays a summary of royalties earned as payments are processed for your orders.
  • Generate customized royalty reports. The downloadable report gives you a detailed picture of orders, refunds and royalties earned.
The information you currently receive in the Prior Six Weeks' Royalties reports is now available in the new Sales Dashboard and Sales & Royalty Report. We will remove this report in the near future.

Visit the Sales Dashboard to view your data or learn more about the new reporting features.
