free e-book query
I notice on my Manage page in projects that I can set a minimum price for my ebook or set it for free. So what happens if I set it as free? I'm assuming that Amazon etc. display it as a free download but how do they make any profit or don't they? I am considering this as I'm no longer bothered about sales revenue, just building a platform and gaining a broader readership.
Also, is there a maximum time limit for being allowed to make it as a free book, and will I still be able to see how many 'purchases' have been made on my revenue page?
