Amazon self Publishing Cost

Costs of Amazon self-publication

I' ve used Kindle Direct Publishing to sell via Amazon. So it still makes financial sense for them to determine the price outside the box. These costs are identical on both platforms for sale on Amazon.com. And I was at a dinner Amazon had last October for self-published authors.

There are 2 licensing choices for each of your digital books, the 35% licensing choice and the 70% licensing choice described below. Choosing this license for your Digital Book applies to the sale of your Digital Book to any area. When you select this license type for your Digital Book, it applies to the sale of your Digital Book to clients in the following available territories:

The license fee for your license fee for purchases to clients outside the available territories is granted under the 35% license options (i.e. at the 35% license fee rate charged for this license option). 35% license rate multiplied by the list price of the digital book without value added tax. This 70% license rate corresponds to the list price of the digital book, excluding tax, minus shipping charges, for sale to clients in the above-mentioned territories.

This 35% royalty rate is the list price of the digital book, excluding value added tax, as determined under the Kindle MatchBook or Kindle Countdown deal-programme. This 70% royalty rate is the amount corresponding to the list price of the digital book excluding tax, minus shipping charges, for sale to clients in the available territories mentioned above.

In the event that your Digital Book is entitled to a 70% royalty rate on the basis of the sale of the Digital Book at list price, the same 70% royalty rate applies to the calculation of the royalty rate on the basis of the sale of your Digital Book at a list price determined under the Kindle MatchBook or Kindle Countdown deal programme.

The shipping cost corresponds to the number of Megabyte that we calculate in your digital book files, times the shipping cost share specified below. Minimal shipping cost for a digital book is US$0.01 for US Dollar Sells, INR for Indian Rupee Sells, CAD$0.01 for CAD Dollar Sells, 0.01 for GB Pound Sells, 1 in JPY, R$0.01 for Brazilian Reais R$1, MXN$1 for Mexican Peso Sells, AUD$0.01 for Australia Dollar Sells and 0.01 for Euro Sells, regardless of Sizes.

We do not charge shipping in JPY for book orders over 10 Mbytes. When we adjust the cost of your digital book, your license fee is due: Licence rate above times the cost at which we are selling the Digital Book, net of tax and shipping charges, for customer purchases in the available territories.

We understand "price comparison" when we are selling the Electronic Book in one or more of the available territories at a lower selling rate (excluding tax) than the list rate in order to adjust a third party's selling rate for any electronic or electronic version of the Electronic Book or our selling rate for any electronic version of the Electronic Book in any of the available territories.

When you lower the list of a digital book while it is available for pre-order, we calculate the lower rate for those clients who pre-order this digital book. Their royalty is calculated on the basis of the effective amount we invoice our clients as a function of our pre-order pricing guarantee, less reimbursements, non-payment of receivables and any value added tax, sale tax or other tax invoiced to a client or levied in relation to a sale to a client.
