The distribution and sale of books fee (the “Commission”) adds up to 61% of the revenue of book sales, VAT excluded, or if different, to the amount mentioned in POS website at the moment of the order. 51% go to the selling store and 10% go to StreetLib. These 61% will be deducted from the revenue paid by StreetLib to the person using POS services.
We manage all the printing formats included between the dimensions 101.6×152.4mm and 215.9x297mm (B/W books, with possible color insert) or 101.6×152.4mm and 215.9×279.4mm (fully colored books).
The printing costs don’t depend on format.
The printing services costs, happening once the book is actually sold, can be evaluated following to the basis of the following detailed pricing of selling bookstores.
|PRINTING COSTS:||Amazon.it, .fr, .de, .es||Amazon.co.uk||Amazon.com|
|Paperback cover and binding||€ 0.60||£ 0.70||$ 0.85|
|Black and White single page printing||€ 0.012||£ 0.010||$ 0.012|
|Color single page printing||€ 0.06||£ 0.045||$ 0.07|
E.G. with a A5 book of 170 B&W pages: Each time a copy is sold (thus printed) the printing cost is $2.89 (170 x $0.012 + $0.85). If the price is set at $11.99, each time you sell a copy on Amazon.com you’ll get $1.79.
