Royalty Calculations

My Nov. report details shows Price $13.86.  But Unit fee $5.33 and royalty of $2.98 add up to $8.31. What am I missing here? Another listed as a distribution sale shows a royalty of $0.21?

Semper fi. I assume you've opted to use EDC (Expanded Distribution Channel). Suggest you use Search Community (upper-right corner of page) and search on expanded distribution royalties (or EDC royalties) to view discussions that should answer your question.

Re: Royalty Calculations

There's a channel fee as well (I would guess Amazon in this case), in addition to the production cost and your royalty. And as the other post says, the royalty of $0.21 is because of the additional middleman that must be paid in Expanded Distribution.
