Here’s an overview of the 75% royalty that your ministry or the ministry of your choice will receive for each sold book…
The main question about the amount of royalty is based on whether you buy the E-book through Christ-Centered Books or Amazon.
When you purchase the E-book at Christ-Centered Books, there is a 2.9% fee of the purchase price and a $0.30 service fee (both fees are charged by the payment gateway).
For example, a $5.00 E-book will give you $4.55 in royalty (75% of $4.55 is $3.42 for your ministry).
If you buy that same E-book at Amazon, they will give, at most, 70% royalty of the purchase price. A $5.00 E-book will give you $3.50 in royalty (75% of $3.50 is $2.63 for your ministry).
When it comes to public domain works, though, Amazon only give 35% royalty of the purchase price. A $5.00 E-book will give you $1.75 in royalty (75% of $1.75 is $1.32 for your ministry).
That is $2.10 less per book than if you had bought the same E-book through Christ-Centered Books.
The royalty structure for softcovers is different. You can only purchase the softcovers at Amazon (softcovers are only available of the books I’ve written).
As a general rule, the softcovers are $8.99, which gives you $3.24 in royalty (75% of $3.24 is $2.43 for your ministry).
If you so desire, you can request a price decrease or increase of the E-books and softcovers, creating a lesser or greater return on your 75% royalty.
