Amazon Sales Reports

26 Nov


Sales Dashboard Use the dashboard to view a summary of units ordered and royalties earned for your titles.
Sales & Royalties This report is part of the Sales Dashboard page. You can generate and download a detailed report to view sales and royalties from any marketplace and timeframe within the past 90 days.
Prior Months’ Royalties These reports show summaries of previous months’ royalties earned, for the last 12 months. Reports are generated near the 15th day of each month and include sales that occurred within the prior month.
Promotions This report includes the performance of your Kindle Countdown Deals promotions.
Payments This report includes the payment amounts, tax withholding, payment type, and other information in a view that you can sort by sales period, marketplace, and status.
Month-to-Date Unit Sales Use this report to get a quick snapshot of your unit sales and transactions for the current month’s sales.
Pre-order Report Use this report to see how many pre-orders (and cancellations) you’ve received on each day, as well as the total for each book in each marketplace.
Prior Six Weeks’ Royalties* This report shows transactions and royalties you’ve earned over the six weeks prior to the current week.

These reports give a good guide on which of your books are selling (most popular)

I find Month-to-Date Unit Sales easiest, btw (by the way)


Hope this “info” may be helpful to you on the writing and publishing journey





Go for it and good luck*

* luck is sometimes defined as “where  work (hard) meets opportunity”

Happy publishing


Best wishes from the First City to see the light each new day
