When and how will I be paid royalty payments?

We send you any royalties we've collected on your behalf every month, within 30 days of receipt from the audiobook sellers (e.g. your January invoice and payment show up by the end of Feb). You can choose how you want to receive your payment under your payment profile.


Most audiobook sellers pay out royalties every month, like in the above example, but a small number do pay out quarterly. Note that the payment methods available to you may have a different minimum threshold that must be reached before payment is sent. You can find these threshold details under your Payment Profile.
