What is the royalty breakdown of an Authors Direct sale?
You set the actual price to the consumer, and get a 70% royalty rate based on that price (the 20% distribution fee still applies). Findaway takes care of any sales taxes added to your price, as well as credit card transaction fees.
For example, if you set a sale price of $10 (and ignoring any sales tax):
Consumer pays $10
Royalty is $7.00 (70% royalty of $10)
Actual payout is $5.60 (80% of $7.00 accounting for distribution fee)
Please note that Authors Direct does not support refunds for transactions and there is a minimum price of $1.99 per title (free is also okay).
