Our royalty software allows users to select from five styles for their royalty statements. Each style offers different formatting options.
The five styles are:
- Monthly sales
- Sales-based reserves
Standard: The standard style is the most popular option. The royalty statement is present in a portrait orientation. This style can display a royalty total for the period for each rule or royalties by month for each royalty rule. This design has the most formatting options.
Monthly Sales: The Monthly sales style is a beta design concept. It should not be used. If you want to use this style contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Sales-based reserves: The sales based reserve style is used by one publisher. It is for publishers that have chosen sales based reserves. In this statement style sales are adjusted to reflect the reserve withholdings and recoveries. This means that reported sales will not match the sales in your sales reports.
Note: Most publishers calculate reserves based on royalty earnings. Earnings based reserves do not adjust reported sales.
Landscape: The landscape style is the second most popular style. It is used by both book and music publishers. Users can specify whether line items are sorted by ISBN, Sales type (Amazon, iTunes), format or title.
Multi-title: The multi-title statement format is a landscape style statement that includes royalties earnings from many titles in a single statement. This style is favored by romance book publishers where authors may have 20, 30, 40 or more titles to their name. This style is also used by music publishers.
