|Amount earned on sales =
Your list price minus our share (shown below)
|Fixed Charge||$4.95 / unit|
|Share for sales on Amazon.com||+45% / sale|
How we calculate our share
Our share is calculated by taking a percentage of the list price plus a fixed charge. The fixed charge is $4.95 per unit and the percentage of the list price varies depending on where each sale occurs.
If you sold a DVD with a list price of $25.00 through a CreateSpace eStore, you would earn a royalty of $16.30. The calculation is as follows:
|Our Share||$8.70 (see details below)|
|Your Royalty||$16.30 (list price minus our share)|
|% Share for eStore||$3.75 (15% of $25)|
|Fixed Charge||$4.95 (one DVD-R in amaray-style case)|
|Our Share Total||$8.70|
The cost for a proof copy is the same as the cost for a single disc, plus shipping and handling. You are asked to pay this amount when you place your order.
Orders placed through your account for your title are referred to as "Member Orders." Members may purchase their own titles to distribute for $7.50 for a single disc.
A few important notes about Member Orders:
* See the rate tables used to calculate shipping and handling.
* Shipping times do not include the manufacture of your order.
