Does Lulu get revenue if author orders book?
For instance, let's say a book is for $10 and it costs $1 to make it and Lulu gets $2 out of every sale purchased by a customer.
How much does Lulu earn if the author themselves buys the book (so they can sell it themselves in person)?
Would the author still have to pay for a Lulu revenue of $2, or would the author only pay for the cost of production plus shipping? (Since technically the customer did not buy through Lulu)
I am very confused and not so good with numbers.
