eBook Sales – Will Amazon Take a Cut of My Profit?
Amazon has become somewhat synonymous with the sale of e-books. That is because they are the makers of a world-class e-book reader that has been sold to millions of people. As a result, many aspiring e-book publishers wonder whether or not Amazon will take a cut of their profits whenever they start selling e-books to the general public.
What you need to understand is the fact that not all e-books are sold through Amazon. In fact, the overwhelming majority of independent e-book publishers sell their e-books directly to customers. This cuts out most of the middlemen. Not only will this give you added flexibility in so far as dealing with your customers, they don’t have to worry about complying with some other companies policies as it relates to submitting e-book materials to them.
So the short answer to this question is that no, Amazon will not necessarily take a cut of your profit. The only time when this could become a factor is if you choose to sell your e-book through their platform. If you do that, then you can expect to pay a little bit of money to them for the privilege of their handling the sales and distribution of the e-book itself.
What you really need to focus on at this point is actually starting a successful e-book publishing business. You owe it to yourself to invest in a quality step-by-step blueprint that will show you exactly what you need to do so that you can eliminate a lot of unnecessary trial and error.
