Sales Dashboard Updates
July 2, 2020

We have updated your sales dashboard to include a new ‘Payout History’ section. This section will display payment amounts, total number of units, any withheld taxes (if applicable to your country. Please see chart at the bottom of this post), and the total amount paid out each month to your preferred payout method.

In past, your sales dashboard would display sales reports as reported by each retailer to Author’s Republic but these royalty amounts would not necessarily correspond to the amount you were paid each month. Some sales for one month might not be reported in one payout period but may be reflected in a future payout period. We understand this to be a source of confusion for many of our authors and publishers, and our new ‘Payout History’ section will provide some clarity. Payout history is available from January 31, 2020 to present. This section may be updated with more useful data in future. For older payouts, please refer to your PayPal and/or bank account statements.

Additionally, we have improved our PayPal payout methods and have started using a new PayPal payout option. As a result, we are implementing a new transaction fee for every PayPal payout, but you as the recipient will no longer incur any fees after receiving your royalties. Fees for each payout are 2% of the total royalty payment but will not exceed $20.00 USD. This means you will keep more of what you earn and pay less in fees to PayPal when compared to how royalties were paid before. For more information, please visit PayPal for fee structures.
