Royalty question
« on: November 23, 2014, 10:07:28 AM »
Is there some reason that Amazon would pay the 35 percent royalty when you have the 70 percent royalty selected? I sold one copy yesterday and received the 70 percent royalty. Today I sold one and was credited the 35 percent royalty? During that time I did upload a new version (I point that out in case that is somehow a factor).

In countries with no Amazon store, they buy through the Amazon.com site, but we only get 35%. :) Once a country has an Amazon store, then we can make 70% but event hen some require KDP Select status.

Yes. Can't remember exactly why, but it is possible. Something to do with different countries all using dotcom.

That happened to me, recently. In my case, it was someone from Canada who had purchased my book from the US site. From what I understand from the members here who posted in my thread, Amazon's Canadian site is a pain to use, so people often order from the US site.
