As an author on Lulu, you get to set your own price for your works beyond the manufacturing cost and you keep 80 percent of any revenue made. In an industry where most companies work off a 70/30 split or more, we take pride in being a publishing solution built entirely towards author success and freedom. We firmly believe that everyone has ideas and expertise and should be able to share their knowledge with the world and, more importantly, profit from that knowledge. We’ve provided different payment options to make it as convenient and easy as possible to claim your author revenue. Below you’ll find tips for how to check your revenue and start seeing some green.
Finding your revenue: You can always check your earned revenue by looking at your “Recent Revenue,” and “All-Time Revenue” tabs found in the blue side-bar in your “My Lulu” tab. It is important to note that your “Recent Revenue” DOES NOT include Amazon or 3rd party earnings. Under your “All-Time Revenue” you’ll see a “Total Zero Creator Revenue” tab which shows your own purchases of your content, number of downloads from customers and Lulu support staff. When you or Lulu purchases your own content, it is at-cost so no revenue is generated or recorded.
