I just sold my first physical book on Lulu and I see on the sales and revenue info that I was paid nothing. Is it just because the sale was less than a month ago and it just has not shown up yet? Shouldn't I be able to see this in my revenue info?
I had a look at your account.
It appears the sale you mention was a self-purchase. Since authors pay only manufacturing cost for books, there is no revenue associated with self-purchases.
Okay. I actually thought it was mandatory to buy a copy and that it didn't count. Thanks.
It is mandatory to purchase and approve a proof copy if your book includes an ISBN and you apply GlobalREACH distribution. Otherwise it is only recommended.
