What you get paid

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.

For example...

If you sold a CD with a list price of $25.00 through a CreateSpace eStore, you would earn a royalty of $16.30. The calculation is as follows:


List Price $25.00
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 CD-R in jewel case)
Our Share Total $8.70
