How & When Do I Earn Compensation/Royalties?

FastPencil calculates author royalties quarterly and receives 3rd party sales reports within 30 days after the close of the quarter. Payments are then calculated and distributed 60 days after 3rd party sales reports are received. So long as your accrued amount is greater than or equal to $25, you will receive a check. If your amount is less than $25, the royalty will roll over quarter to quarter until it equals $25. You can see your reported royalties on your Royalties page.

  • Quarter 1 = January-March
  • Quarter 2 = April-June
  • Quarter 3 = July-September
  • Quarter 4 = October-December
