Shoe, Glynn Stewart used to keep the kenpc payout stats over on KB. But he hasn't moved here at all. (Not surprising, given how much writing he does.)

Would you be interested in doing a running monthly thread, where the rate is updated in the OP each month? I'll sticky it so it's easily found.

If not Shoe, then would someone like to step up?

Figures for November, according to PhoenixFromTheAshes on KBoards:

US = .005206
UK = .003740
DE = .003149
CA = .004586
IN = .101256
AU = .004141

Highest rate for quite some time, I think.  Grin

There's no reason the .au rate should be so much lower, one would think. The .de rate has something to do with fees Germany charges, and Amazon is taking out of our cut. Not sure about Canada.

Very likely is reduced by the 10% GST.

Given the value of the Aussie dollar against the US, the .au rate works out to something like .0028 USD--a lot more than a 10% difference.

At least the Euro and GBP rates are offset somewhat by the currency value.

April's report isn't out yet but will be around the 15th this month.

May's payout won't be available until middle of June. I expect they'll publish the reports on Friday, June 14th since the 15th (usual day) falls on a Saturday.

Yes. But for the last few months we've been talking in the Lagoon about banned authors suspected of being back in KU.

For me, this confirms it. As the scammers get back in, the page reads rise, and the rate drops.

We've seen this enough times now for it to be relatively obvious.

But the recent bannings were at the end of June.

This was July's rate.

So I'm not sure the assertion holds - presumably if a bunch of scammers were actually manipulating page reads, and got terminated, we'd have seen July's rate increase, or at least hold steady with the prior month - and not drop 5%.

Especially as all three banned authors were top 100 author rank authors. Seems like a very aberrant data point to me.

No, we just got June's rate, which is paid end of Aug.

So yes, it includes the recently banned authors KU reads.

The interesting thing will be if July's improves or not.

That's incorrect, Timothy. The rate is always released midway through the following month. We knew June's rate in mid-July. We'll know August's rate in mid-September.

As evidence I introduce the actual email copy sent by Amazon:

The KDP Select Global Fund for July is $25.6 million.

We will again award "KDP Select All-Stars" for July to the most-read authors and most-read titles in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. All bonuses will be awarded based on total Kindle Edition Normalized Pages read during the month. We will also award bonuses for illustrated kids’ books – the top 100 most read titles in the U.S. and top 25 in the U.K. will receive such bonuses.


So no, it doesn't include the recently banned authors' KU reads.

I'm not sure Timothy is talking about the recent account terminations, but instead that there are several people who believe (through gathered information they have shared with others) some of the authors who lost their accounts over a year ago are back and up to some of their old tricks.

Thank you for calculating that. 

While I'm happy for the increase, I wonder if it happened because a lot of authors are seeing low page read numbers than normal.
I certainly am.
