Amazon takes 55% of the list price for ebooks sold to US customers
Amazon takes 60% of the list price for ebooks sold to international customers
This is a wholesale contract with Amazon, which means they pay us off the list price set for ebooks we distribute. If Amazon discounts your ebook for competitive purposes, you still get paid off the original price. With this contract, there are no pricing restrictions, they do not charge a transaction fee per megabyte of download, and you can distribute enhanced titles. There are also no restrictions on free price promotions.Account 2
Amazon takes 30% of the sales price of your title
The list price must be between $2.99 and $9.99 and you cannot run free price promotions. Amazon reserves the right to discount your ebook, pay you off that lower price, and charge a transaction fee per megabyte of download. This account does not accept audio/video-enhanced content. Sales made in Amazon India, Japan, and Brazil receive a 35% royalty.
