What is distribution paid units?
« on: October 27, 2018, 04:56:08 PM »
Anybody know? I looked at my kdp reports and there was a strange, dark red colour on the graph. Hovering, I found it said 'distribution paid units (paperback)'. I've never seen this before and it is separate from the orange line for e-books and the grey one for paperbacks.

Any ideas?

I don't have that, but I don't have anything in expanded distribution. Could it be that?
Never listen to people with no skin in the game.

I'm a lucky guy. I find the harder I work, the luckier I am.

You're the second person who has suggested that. I never thought of it and now I think you might be right. It might account for the crummy amount of royalties in Book Report!

Thanks.
