    They usually pay about two months after the sale. If you have waited longer, give them a ring Nell and ask for your money.
    Good luck. I hope you get it soon.

    There is a two-month pay lag. Ebooks sold in January, for example, pay out by the end of March provided you meet the minimum of $10 in US and Canada for EFT and $100 in US and Canada for check payments.

    Check out and read the "Getting Paid" page for more information.

    If you published your book on Kindle I understand they wait 30 days or after the close of a full month assuming your payout royalty is at least $10.
