Pricing & Royalty

How does Archway Publishing calculate Royalty payments?

Please note that Royalties are paid to you on all sales of your Work EXCEPT: (a) sales of used copies of the Work; (b) sales of the Work to yourself; and (c) copies of the Work given to any person or entity (e.g. the media) free of charge.

For each royalty-qualifying sale in print format, Archway Publishing gives authors a royalty rate of twenty-five percent (25%) of the Suggested Retail Price if sold through the website bookstore and ten percent (10%) of the Suggested Retail Price if sold through our distribution channels.

For audio formats, you will receive one hundred percent (100%) of the difference of the Suggested Retail Price less the discounts (deductions) taken by any distribution channel for each sale of the individual Work. These deductions include promotional discounts, distribution discounts, and sales discounts.

You should be aware that the largest retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Amazon and most Borders stores, place orders for Archway Publishing titles through Ingram; those orders will appear as wholesale sales on your royalty statement.
