The following is an example of how compensation earnings are calculated, in US pricing:
$21.99 Retail/List Price of the book
-53% Wholesale discount distribution partners receive (this is not the discount bookstores receive)
$10.34 Wholesale price the distribution partners pay Ingram when they buy the book
-$6.18 Print cost for a 6x9 (229x152mm) 400-page BW Interior paperback book (color cover)
$4.16 Compensation earnings paid for every book sold
**NOTE ABOUT WHOLESALE DISCOUNTS: Bookstores do not receive the wholesale discount you offer. Offering a 53% to 55% wholesale discount allows bookstores to receive their normal trade discounts from distributors and wholesalers they buy books from.
IMPORTANT: If you make changes to the list price, discount or returns option it can have a negative impact on the compensation you receive.
IngramSpark remits these payments within 90 days of the month-end reporting period following the sale.
