How does KOLL pay if you're not in Select?
« on: January 13, 2016, 07:41:05 pm »
I feel like I should know this, but I just can't track it down. I had a permafree book really take off (thanks to a BookBub). The column for KENC shows 90. But since it's not in KU, I assume those are KOLL? And if that's true how does that payout?

Let me know if anyone knows how this works! Thanks.

    If your books aren't in KU, you should have no pages read. Did you ever have books in KU? Sometimes people take months (or even years) to read borrowed books. Ninety pages is worth about 45 cents.

    Borrows that happen while a book is not in Select do not trigger payments at all.

    However, you continue to be paid for KU reads on downloads that happened back when your book was in Select.

    If someone kept them on their device that long, yes.

    That's pretty darn cool, actually. :)
