How to Make Money with Kindle Part 4

Sales Reports and Getting Paid

Getting your sales reports and setting up your payment systems are two important basic fundamentals of being a Kindle seller.

Let’s walk through the details of how to use both systems.

Generating Sales Reports

To track your Kindle book’s sales progress, click “Reports” along the top tab of your Kindle Direct Publishing account.

Amazon offers three different report types:

Month to Date Unit Sales. This report shows you how many books you’ve sold this month and in the last month.

Prior Six Weeks’ Royalties. This report shows you how much you earned in the last month and a half.

Prior Months’ Royalties. View how much you earned for up to 12 months in the past.

If you’re selling your books globally, you can specify which Amazon sites you want to view statistics for.

You can also search for specific sales.

Get in the habit of regularly checking your reports so you know how your book(s) are performing.

Getting Paid

You can get paid by Amazon one of two ways: By physical mailed check or by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT.)

In order to get paid, you need to make sure your tax information and address are correct. You also need to setup your bank information if you intend to be paid by EFT.

Start by going to your account setup in the top right corner.

Then setup your personal details & information.

Enter your tax information if you haven’t already.

Then choose the method and currency you want to be paid in.

If you choose “Check,” the check will be sent to you at the address you gave above.

If you choose “EFT” in the drop-down box, you’ll be given the opportunity to enter your banking information.

You’re all setup! That’s how to set yourself up to get paid by Amazon, as well as how to check how much you’re earning in various timeframes.
