How much do I receive in terms of royalties for books sold through the Bookstore?
You are entitled to 100% royalties.
You will also be required to come up with a fixed price list for each book and e-book that you publish through Bookwhirl.com, provided that you abide by the following guidelines:
1. The price should not be worth more than the book or e-book's price in any other retailer, online store, or sales channel.
2. For e-books in particular, the price should not be worth more than its print version.
Bookwhirl.com will pay you your royalties on a quarterly basis. However, you will only receive your royalties for a certain quarter if the amounts due total to the minimum amount of $50. Any unpaid amounts will accumulate until the next quarter in which the amount due is at least $50. If the third quarter comes around, and the amount still does not total to at least $50, the payment will then be released. The payment mode for the royalties will be the specific method you choose upon your registration with Bookwhirl.com's services. However, the company may introduce some updates to the payment methods as they see fit.
Why are the prices of my book on Bookwhirl.com different from its prices on other reseller sites?
The exact manner of calculating the book retail prices on our Bookstore and on other reseller sites is a confidential matter which the company opts not to divulge, as it is already part of our internal operations. It goes the same way for how author's royalties are calculated on our Bookstore and on the other reseller sites.
When my books are sold, can I get access to my buyers' information?
No, you will only be able to view the username of the customer.
