If your book is sold at the 70% royalty rate, Amazon will add a "delivery fee". This is a small fee that only applies to Amazon. This fee varies based on the file size of the Kindle ebook. (See the second column of "Section C" on this chart
If you submit your book to us with a retail price between $2.99-$9.99, we will submit to Amazon with the 70% royalty option. If you request a suggested retail price book of less than $2.99, or over $9.99, we'll select the 35% royalty option.
For books we submit to Amazon priced lower than $2.99 or over $9.99, Amazon pays 35% of the list price for each unit sold. For books between $2.99 - $9.99 for which we would select the 70% royalty option), Amazon pays eBookIt.com a royalty of 70% of the list price (but if Amazon sell at a lower price to match a competitor’s price for a digital or physical edition of the book, or Amazon's price for a physical edition of the book, they will pay 70% of their sale price) for each eligible book sold to U.S. customers, net delivery costs, and 35% of the list price for each unit sold to customers residing outside the 70% territories (as of publishing of this FAQ, the 70% territories include Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom [including Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man], United States, Vatican City).
Amazon's policies regarding the different royalty options, and the royalties they will pay in certain situations, are complex. For full details, please see their Sales & Reporting and Royalties FAQ
