Here’s an overview of the 75% royalty that your ministry or a 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 through an online retailer.
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 through an online retailer, 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, most online retailers 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 buy that 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 have written).
As a general rule, the softcovers are $8.99, which gives $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.
