    Officially, KDP only reports on the 15th and 30th of the month. Sometimes updates are slow to appear, especially when you're first starting out, but lately I've been getting almost daily updates whenever sales happen.

    Which is rarer than I'd like it to be.

    There are three kinds of reports:

    Month-to-date unit sales: There's a drop-down list for Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, Amazon FR, Amazon ES, and Amazon IT.
    These are updated either in real-time or close to it. A sale reported here can show up as much as five hours before the sales number on the public pages updates.

    Prior Six Weeks Royalties. These show the sales on a weekly basis Sunday-to-Saturday, updated each Sunday.

    Prior Months Royalties. This is a spreadsheet showing the official sales and income, posted on or about the 15th of the following month.

    Hey all

    Anyone notice problems with these reports the last couple of days? Or is my novel just not selling a single copy after selling 27 copies the two days before?

    I kinda hope there's a problem with the reports! Seen a lot of talk over at Amazon authors forum.

    Maybe my novel isn't selling then! No sales since Tuesday morning after 27 the previous two days. Still got a ranking of 21 K though which I thought must mean I was selling a handful!

    Sometimes there is a lag. I've noticed a couple of times that I'll have no sales all day and then suddenly twenty. Who knows why. Some people have suggested that Amazon KDP isn't updating as often as they used to.
