Online Income Report #1

income_report

This is my first income report. From the next month I will be posting my monthly income reports. My income is still not worth mentioning but I think it will help the readers to get a clear idea what experiments I did with myself and my website. I opened my website on 6 November 2013. I chose Gumroad at first. I didn’t get any sale for two months. But after many days I got my first sale and few people who gave me some good advice. You can read the whole story here.

March: 14th March was the day when I published my book on Amazon Kindle.

Total sales: 9

Amazon 7
Gumroad 1
Website 1

Money earned:

Amazon :

Amazon.com      – 11.88 USD

Amazon.de         –   1.76 EUR

Amazon.com.br  –   4.09 BRL

Gumroad: 4.99 USD

Website: 3.99 USD

I cannot withdraw money except from Amazon.com until the money reaches 100 in different amazon markets. For example, if I earned 100 euro in Amazon.de then only Amazon will pay me via check. So I will not count the money from these markets. But I will still include them in my income reports. Amazon takes a big share from my sales. At the end of the month all I was left with 11.88 dollars. After two months when Amazon paid me, it deducted 30% of the money as tax. So all I got was 8.32 dollar. Gumroad don’t let you withdraw money until there are minimum 10$ in the account. It also deduct 0.50$ from every sale. So I got 4.50$ in my account. My website earned 3.99 dollar. In which PayPal paid me 3.50$. So at the end of the month all I got was 11.82$. Enough money to buy a shirt.

April:

Money earned:

Amazon :

Amazon.com      –  22.34 USD

Website: 2.99 USD In April I changed my book cover and I saw a boost in the sales. I also run a discount for few days. So I got a sale on website too. Gumroad gave me another sale. So now my total amount reached 9 dollar on Gumroad. I still can’t withdraw this money. I will be paid by Amazon on 30th June. PayPal paid me 2.50 dollar after deduction.

May was a slow month. Its summer time in India and I feel very lazy in this season. I concentrated on learning to draw. I still have a long way to go. Amazon will pay this money on 30th July 2014. I was paid by my website only. Here is the pie chart of sales for 3 months.

    Good first post, Sujit. I recommend you work on the formatting though as it’s a bit difficult to read. Keep it up!

      Thanks Mathew. I have to learn a lot. I am always inspired from your blog. Hope you are always here to help me. I would be happy if you will suggest any formatting guide for me.

        Sure thing. For example, the following text could be made into dot points instead of putting it all in one line. It looks like you might have tried to do this, but the formatting is not working:

        “Money earned: Amazon : Amazon.com – 11.88 USD Amazon.de – 1.76 EUR Amazon.com.br – 4.09 BRL Gumroad: 4.99 USD Website: 3.99 USD”

        Also aim to use short paragraphs since these are easier to read. Try to limit it to three sentences per paragraph.

        Hope this helps!
