For any of you that haven't noticed it, it's finally happened!

Two months and 11/12 days later.  ;D

Now that's what I call fast! *sarcasm*

ps. Be careful, they're all over the place, some dated later come before, so scroll all the way down and checks the dates.

Well, I see where a slew of Barnes and Noble sales have updated my balance through December 15th. Except that my total balance hasn't updated since Apple updated. Same amount owed as yesterday. I'm assuming my total balance just hasn't caught up yet with my "balance updated" bracket.

Ya, mine too.

Go look again though at the sales quantity, mine just updated to more. It looks like they are updating in batches.

Yay, another...

...sixty cents made.

:( Awww come on, it's gotta be more than that surely... unless you only distribute to Diesal, in which case you're totally winning!

Just noticed B&N only updated up to the 18th of December, anyone else got that? That means there's still some to come from Christmas (I know you already know that, I'm just kinda' exciting myself really.)

This is reaking havok on my spreadsheet. It's my own fault I know. I had some Apple ones pop up late about a day later, and then B&N doing the same now. The numbers sneak in on the blue bar when you thought you'd already counted that one on that date. :'( I should be more like this though: :D

I'm punch-drunk over my sales at B&N. A 6 fold increase almost equaling my iTunes sales, which is my number 1 retailer.

Wow! Now B&N better not collapse until *after* I get paid!  ;D

Anyone else have totally strange sale prices in their new smash b&n sales reports? For titles prices at 2.99 and 3.95, I have prices 3.28, 4.20, 3.20, 3.14, 3.22 etc... Only thing I could think of was sales in UK but there are way too many of the odd prices for that to be the case.

The only ones that differ for me are the ones in GBP. Check the denomination column. You're UK sales may be a pleasant surprise.

I have the same thing. Don't get it.

It's the VAT. Unlike Apple, B&N adds the VAT onto the cover price. Check the VAT column in the sales report and you should see an amount. Don't forget that it is possible to buy books through the UK store with US$, so not all UK sales are in GBP.

If only. No, my total for 2012, as of right now, is exactly five paid sales at B&N, for the whole year. All 99c titles, so three whole dollars earned. Likewise with Apple. I had more sales at Sony last year.

I've likely made more on Select borrows of my latest novel in the first ten days of January than I did with all my titles through Smashwords in all of 2012. I can't sell outside of Amazon to save my life.

Yeah the price seems different but I earned the same. And there is a strange country_1 or country_001 attached to some of the sales. Not too sure what that means. I didn't see any country_2..

For me, the # of books sold has updated (although I hope folk are right, and there's still more updating to do), but the balance hasn't been updated yet, so I'm hoping for a nice change when that happens.  And yes, I too noticed a "strange" price.  Not sure what that's about but I don't want to look again too soon.  **Come on, big money, big money!**

001 is America.

That's why it's a bit strange about the unusual prices. I have the same thing that Patty mentioned, but if it is tax from another country I would have thought it shouldn't be down as country 001.

Smashword's dark arts no doubt.

edit: Just to clarify, numerical numbers are given to countries. These are most commonly used for international phone calls. U.S.A is 001, U.K by rights, if that is the system Smash is using, should be 044.

I still can't believe what I'm seeing. All those sales can't be mine.  :eek: Almost sold more in those two months than in the whole year on Amazon (for one pen name). But I also have two -1 sales. Are those returns? Haven't seen that before.  ;D
