There will now be a new Ebook Sales Models Summary page in the PDF version of the Ebook Sales Report. The totals on this page are identical to the Retail Summary page, but instead of listing the various retailers for each sale, this new page will summarize the sales by the Ebook Sales Model (i.e. Pay_Per_Use, Singe_User, etc.) used. Below is a screenshot from this new summary statement:

eBook retailers have 25 days after month end to report eBook sales to Ingram. For this reason, the sales report you receive will be for sales 60 days prior. See the chart below for the payment schedule.
A separate report is generated for Apple (Agency) ebook sales. If your ebook sold at Apple and any other ebook retailer, you will receive two separate reports.
If there were no ebook sales, you will not receive a compensation report email.
Monthly sales reports will be emailed within five (5) business days of our accounting month-end. Payments are made to the publisher, via direct deposit or PayPal, 90 days from the end of the month in which the sales are reported.
