Why does PubIt! only pay a 65 percent royalty

As compared to Amazon Kindle's 70%, Kobo's 70%, iBooks 70% or Smashwords 85%?

Smashwords is something of the scrappy newcomer in that mix, so they make an extra effort. Otherwise, 65 vs 70 isn't that great a stretch, though it is an interesting question.

The difference is 8 percent of your money.

 

If the IRS could tax you for 8 percent less, you'd take it, right?

 

Better example: its well known the ceiling for ebook royalties with traditional publishers is 25 percent.

 

So every dollar counts!
