|Amount earned on sales =
Your list price minus our share (shown below)
|Fixed Charge||$4.95 / unit*|
|Share for sales on eStore||+15% / sale|
|Share for sales on Amazon.com||+45% / sale|
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 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:
|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|
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.
