I received this in my email a few minutes ago. This is good news for print sales. Publishers will receive more funds from CreateSpace sales in Canada via Amazon.ca instead of having those sales run through the Expanded Services.
I’m wondering how Kobo will react to this news.
Starting October 8, we began making CreateSpace titles enrolled in the Amazon.com sales channel available directly to readers in Canada on Amazon.ca. Your title may already be offered on Amazon.ca through Expanded Distribution or other channels, but now you can earn the same royalty on Amazon.ca that you would earn for a sale on Amazon.com.
You can expect to see a title enrolled in the Amazon.com sales channel on Amazon.ca in 30 days. List prices will be converted from US dollars to Canadian dollars to determine the Amazon.ca list price. Royalties from Amazon.ca sales will be calculated based on your USD list price and reported as part of your USD sales for Amazon.com. You can learn more in our Help pages.
If you would like to disable distribution to Amazon.ca, please contact support.
