Once the book parameters are provided, we will give you pricing options that will detail your royalties based on the printing costs and KDP fees. For the platinum package, Goodrich Publishing will assess a 4% royalty fee for any books sold through Amazon. This means that we will not collect any royalties for books you sell on your own or through other channels! We want you excited to partner with us and getting a royalty check is exciting!
Sample Royalty Situation
Sale Price: $20.00
Approximate KDP Fees*: $8.00
Goodrich Publishing Fee: $0.80
Your Royalty: $11.20
(*KDP fees vary based on printing costs/page counts so this is just an average example)
Royalties are paid out from KDP 60-days in arrears. For example, if the book is published in January, you will receive January royalties on the last day of March. Sales reporting is available to you at any time!
