Your royalty will depend on the country your book is sold in, and on the business model of the particular store. Let’s see an example of a book sold in Apple iBooks.
For books sold in the USA:
|Apple royalty (30%)||3 USD|
|PublishDrive royalty (10%)||1 USD|
|Publisher (60%)||6 USD|
Books sold outside of USA, for example in Europe, may be subject to the local VAT on ebooks. VAT can range from 0% to as much as 30%. In the following example we will see how your royalties will be calculated in a country where VAT is 20%:
|VAT (20%)||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.
