Kindle Unlimited Payout Holds Steady as Funding Pool Jumps to $14.9 Million

Kindle Unlimited Payout Holds Steady as Funding Pool Jumps to $14.9 Million Kindle (platform) Streaming eBooks Amazon reported on Friday that Kindle Unlimited funding was up again in March 2016, to $14.9 million. This was up slightly from February, but also less than the $15 million (plus bonuses) paid out in January 2016.

In spite of the increase in funding, the per-page rate held steady at $0.00478 per KENPC page read in March, 2016, ever so slightly down from the rate of $0.00479 paid in February 2016.

That's the rate for the US market; here are the rates for a few other countries:

  • UK: £0.00303 (GBP).
  • France Spain, Italy, Netherlands: €o.00474 (EUR)
  • Canada: $0.0047 per page (CAD)
  • Brazil: R$ 0.01140 (BRL)
  • India: 0.1 per page (INR)
  • Mexico: $0.7947 (MXP)
  • Japan: 0,8178 (JPY)

I do not have data for all KU markets, and there's also conflicting reports for the rate in Germany (€o.00333, and 0.0047).

P.S. Here's a list of the monthly funding pools. It does not include the bonuses paid out each month.
