How Do you Make Money on Amazon Kindle?
You make money on Amazon Kindle through royalty option. You can choose between two royalty options for each of your Kindle book (1) 70% Royalty Option (2) 35% Royalty Option. To qualify for the 70% Royalty Option your book should meet its requirements.
Amazon pays up to 70% royalty on Kindle books priced between $2.99 USD to $9.99 USD and 35% royalty on Kindle books priced more or less than $2.99 USD to $9.99 USD.
Royalty means a percentage that you will earn from your sold eBook. For example, your XYZ eBook cost is $8.00, you will earn 70% from its price. The 70% of $8.00 is $5.6 USD. It means that your share is $5.6 USD and Amazon share is $2.4 USD.
Let’s say, if you produce 130 monthly sales of that XYZ eBook you will earn 130 X $5.6 USD = $728 USD.
These are some of the popular categories around which people publish books on Amazon Kindle:
- Business & Investing, Comics & Graphic Novels
