Whoa! Why is change coming off my earnings?

I just lowered my book's price to .99 the other day. I've noticed when I sell one book I make .40 but when I sell 2 I make .79??? That should be .80!

When I sell 4 I should make 1.80 but I see 1.78!

I don't recall seeing anything about losing money the more I sell!

 

Did I miss some small print somewhere???

$0.99 * .40 = $0.396

 

You earn $0.396 per sale on a $.99 book.

 

Raise your price to $1.00 and you'll get $0.40 per sale.

Hmm, well then I won't get in that highly looked for .99 category that has already showed a huge improvement to getting my number down where it can be found easily.

Re: Whoa! Why is change coming off my earnings?

Since writing this post and emailing the Pubit folks I have just now received the reply that they don't know what I'm talking about. They see it at 1@ .40/ 4@ 1.60 the way it's supposed to.

So... in between then and now someone had fixed it.

 

Apparently, there is no need to change to $1.oo  as it's not supposed to take pennies off.Thanks for the thought though. I'm just glad to know I'm earning my full amount.
