I looked at my royalty statement this morning. My book sold a few copies. Some are properly listed at the 70% royalty and then some are incorrectly listed at the 35% rate, both show the same sale price of $2.99.

Is it international sales that revert to 35%? But I only showed 2 sales to the UK and 1 to Germany and they are listing more units than that at 35%.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Yep what David said. Any book sold in say... Mexico, Japan, any of the African nations, will be sold through Amazon US, and get the 35%. LOTS of countries under that 35% international umbrella.

I wish they would allow us to see the data.

How do they audit for errors? (And don't say there are no errors, technology and systems are fallible).

They probably run sales source against what has been posted to the author's account. Then run sales total against the total in the author account. Then aggregate total posted to author account against both revenue and payables files.
