Kindle Unlimited Payout up Slightly to $1.35 in April 2015
Amazon announced in the KDP support forums on Friday that they had boosted the funding for KDP Select to $9.8 million, up $300,000 from March 2015. With a reported payout of $1.35 for each time an ebook was read, that boosts the estimated number of loans to 7.26 million, up from 7.14 million loans last month.
As you can see in the above chart, the payment per loan dropped to $1.54 in August 2014 (as a result of Kindle Unlimited launching in July 2014). Thanks to Amazon taking care to limit funding to only grow as fast as the number of ebooks loaned, it has continued to stay below $1.50 since October 2014.
