Sales at a Glance reporting provides a view of how your titles are selling this year, year-over-year
comparison (March 2021 & March 2022), or lifetime performance.
Print sales and digital sales are displayed separately in each report.
Print sales are displayed in dark blue and ebook sales are displayed in light blue.
Click on Full Report to use the interactive features of the Sales at a Glance report.
Click on the box for digital or print to turn off the sales view for that product type. Digital (light blue) is selected in the example, so only Print sales appear (dark blue). See the image below.
Hover over the Lifetime Sales graph to view units sold by date. See the image below.
Highlight an area of the Lifetime Sales to zoom in and view sales for a smaller date range. See the images below.
Sales data is updated within 24-48 hours after we receive the order from a seller (bookstore, library, retailer, etc.). Please keep in mind that a wholesale distribution order is not considered final until after it has been shipped.
Sellers have the option to cancel orders prior to fulfillment, so these cancellations can cause fluctuations between sales and compensation data.
Here's an example:
- We received a wholesale/distribution order for a book on January 1st (This sale is listed in the Sales Reports and appeared in the reporting within 24-48 hours after January 1st)
- The order is printed and shipped to the retailer/bookseller on January 5th. (Retailer ship times may vary)
- The order is posted to the sales compensation report on January 7th
- The Sales Compensation period closed on February 1st (The compensation amount is now available in the Unpaid Sales Compensation section of the Compensation Report until it is paid and then it will appear in the Paid Compensation reporting)
