How are the Author payments calculated?

Bob Bookshop Author payments will be calculated as follows for all valid, confirmed and completed orders: [Bookshop Sale Price] minus [Book Base Price] equals [Author Payment]. The book base price is the standard price charged when purchasing one copy of the book through the Bob Designer software.

For example, if you sell a square 26 page paperback book with a base price of £16.99 and an author mark-up of £10 the book would be sold in the bookshop at a price of £26.99. Your author payment would be £26.99 -£16.99 = £10.00

Author Payments are made every 2 months and Bob Books charges a £1 processing fee each time an Author Markup payment is made. So if you sell one copy you will receive £9, if you sell two copies - £19 etc.
