Question from David:

“Amazon pays out 70% up to $9.99 and half that for ebook prices above. Why would anyone ever charge between $10 and $20 for an ebook, when the author gets less from amazon (and presumably sells fewer at a higher price)?



Our response: Probably not worth it to price higher than $9.99. Obviously there a few exceptions, but generally keeping your stuff within that “Amazon-approved” range of $2.99 to $9.99. Here’s a post from Nick that describes his pricing strategy a bit more.
