    Publisher Compensation

    Discussion in 'Self-Publishing' started by Andrew Waterhouse, Sep 6, 2016.

    I'm just starting to spread my wings in to researching the self publishing POD environment. The titan of IngramSpark leaps out to me being most attractive so far. I have used their publisher compensation calculator to get a general feel for how much money I would get per book sold. I have set the book as follows... a £12.99, 270 paged colour 5.5" 8.5". I've set the wholesale discount to 40%, albeit a bit unsure if that is a good figure to go with. It's looking like I'd be getting around £1.99 per book sold.

    Is this normal? What are the 'average' rates that publishers make per book sold?

    Any help, much appreciated as always.
