KINDLE UNLIMITED PER PAGE RATE FOR MAY, 2017

In May, 2017, the per-page rate for Kindle Unlimited KENP pages read dropped down a bit to $0.00433 from the value of $0.00457 for April, 2017.

It’s not the first time the per-page rate has dropped, though for quite some time it has held fairly steady, and not too long ago it peaked at about half a penny per page.

The rate is currently closer to $0.04 per page than it is to $0.05 per page, but that’s not the first time that it has ever flirted with $0.04 per page. In the past, when it dropped down to $0.04, it managed to work its way back up and hold it there for several months. (That doesn’t mean the same will necessarily happen again.)

The KDP Select Global Fund for May, 2017 was $17.9M, which is just a slight jump from the value of $17.8M for April, 2017.

This is a positive indicator. The Global Fund steadily rises. I remember when it was a “mere” $10M per month. Almost every month, Amazon pays out more royalties overall for Kindle Unlimited pages read. It’s a huge pool, and it’s growing. The challenge is much like paid sales: Getting customers interested in your book enough to read it (over the many other books on the market).
