Yes, you understood us correctly! We only take 10% of net sales with no upfront fees, subscription or any set-up costs. In short, PublishDrive is the best and most reasonably priced solution in the ebook industry.
Your royalty will depend on the country your book is sold in, subject to the local VAT on ebooks. For example, if VAT is 20%, your royalty will be calculated as the following table shows:
|VAT (20%) (sales tax in US)||1.7 USD|
|Apple royalty (30%)||2.5 USD|
|PublishDrive royalty (10%)||0.8 USD|
|Publisher (60%)||5 USD|
Based on this logic, if the VAT is just 3%, your royalties will be higher.
Unlike other players who pay you upon receiving the funds from the stores, PublishDrive offers a payment guarantee: you’ll get paid monthly, whether or not we received the funds.
PublishDrive offers ebook conversion as one of its services.
