How does AuthorHouse calculate Royalty payments?


AuthorHouse gives authors a royalty rate of ten percent (10%) through our distribution channels for print formats. Royalties are based on the payments we actually receive from the sale of printed copies of your book, less any shipping and handling charges or sales and use taxes. Also, we offer discounts to retail and wholesale customers, so the royalty amount you receive depends on what type of customer (i.e. retail or wholesale) bought your book and any discount they received. For each royalty-qualifying sale in print format through our website bookstores, you will receive twenty-five percent (25%) of the retail price.

For audio formats, you will receive one hundred percent (100%) of the difference of the Suggested Retail Price less the discounts (deductions) taken by any distribution channel for each sale of the individual Work. These deductions include promotional discounts, distribution discounts, and sales discounts.

You should be aware that the largest retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Amazon and most Borders stores, place orders for AuthorHouse titles through Ingram; those orders will appear as wholesale sales on your royalty statement.
