Average offer price?
« on: April 05, 2021, 06:21:51 PM »
The second book (of 2) in one of my series has been published for exactly 5 years. It has always been priced at 2.99 in the UK. For a long time it brought in a royalty of 1.59 and it is still doing so!
It's been nearly a year since the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer abolished VAT on ebooks. All my other UK royalties on books priced at 2.99 then went up to 2.05, or thereabouts, but not this one.

So, today I checked that it was on sale for 2.99 and then looked at the KDP reports spreadsheet. That lists this book with an Average List Price without tax of 2.99, BUT an Average Offer Price without tax of 2.31! That gives the royalty of 1.59. What's going on?

The delivery of 0.04 is about right and commensurate with all my other 2.99 books. They are all getting the right royalty. It just this one book.

Will someone please explain what this Average Offer price is?
