Publishing At Pothi.Com (Print)

This depends on the MRP you have set for your book and the physical specifications of the book. Production cost of the book depends on the physical specifications of the book. While publishing the book on the Pothi.com, you specify the MRP. If the book is sold on Pothi.com, production cost is subtracted from the MRP and the 50% of the profit goes to you as royalty. The remaining 50% goes to Pothi.com.

If the book is in distribution, and the sale happens through distribution partners, then distribution margin also needs to subtracted from the MRP apart from production cost. The remaining profit is divided in the ratio of 80:20, where 80% goes to you as royalty and 20% to Pothi.com.

As the book sells, the earning accrues to your account and is paid out periodically. You can estimate royalty at various price levels for your book with the Price and Royalty Calculator ("For Distribution" tab).
