What are the references on my report for Audiobook sales to AL, ALOP, and ALC?

AL - An AL purchase is a person that is an Audible member purchased your book using a membership credit that they receive on a monthly basis for a fee. Since credits can purchase a book of any price, they have a different value than someone who paid cash for the book. Audible uses an allocation factor to determine the value for the credit each month.

ALOP - This type of purchase is made when an Audible member purchases the book without using a credit. Audible members receive 30% off the retail price for all books, so you can usually assume the amount paid will be 30% less than retail, so you will receive royalties based on that amount.

ALC - This indicates that someone purchased your book A La Carte, without any discounts or promotions. Most ALC purchases come from iTunes, but can also indicate that someone bought the book from Amazon or Audible that is not a member, so they paid the regular retail price for the book.
