The Data & functions > Sales view shows a listing of all sales entries (records). Sales entries are used as the basis for royalty calculations.
Royalty criteria can include ISBN, format, customer, sales type, and territory.
Royalty calculations can be based on quantity sold, suggested retail price (list price, MSRP, RRP), invoiced retail price, net retail value, net sale amount, net revenue (net sale amount less expenses), and gross margin ( net revenue less cost of goods sold).
Every sales record has one of four entry types:
- Historical (H). Historical transactions are excluded from royalty calculations. They are included in royalty escalation tallies.
- Press (free) (P). – Free transactions are excluded from royalty calculations and escalation tallies. Free copies can be displayed in the Royalty statement’s > Editions summary section.
- Return (R).
- Sale (S).
Sales entries cannot be deleted or modified once they are accounted for in a royalty statement.
