Please consider closely the factors that determine cost. First the number of pages, the size of the final volume with the number of pages needed to be in colour or only black and white, will factor in to determine cost of production.
The final print-ready file will help a more accurate projection of the book’s cost.
It entirely depends on the production cost. Factors like the number of pages, content, and finish of the book determine it. You can use our online calculator to estimate it.
Expenses are subtracted from the MRP [maximum retail price]. This covers production inputs as also distribution. Profit = MRP – Expenses (Production Cost + Distribution Cost).
For example: The book is prices at ₹300/-. Printing Cost incurred is ₹80/-
We can conclude ₹300 – [₹80 (print cost) + ₹135 (distribution cost)] = ₹85
₹85/- per book will be the earning through sales on all eCommerce sites like Amazon.in, Flipkart.

International Sales Earnings
Let us assume, the Selling Price of a book is $9.80, and the production cost of the book is $2.99. Now, the profits would be calculated as
Profits = [Selling Price – (40% Distribution Cost on Selling Price + Production Cost)] – Processing Fee (37% of the profit amount after deducting distribution cost and production cost)
= [$9.80 – ($3.92 + $2.99)] – 37%
= [$9.80 – $6.91] – 37%
= $2.89 – $1.06 = $1.82
You will earn $2.32 when sold via Amazon.com and other Amazon international websites.
International Expanded Distribution
Let us assume, the Selling Price of a book is $9.80, and the production cost of the book is $2.99 Now, the profits would be calculated as
Profits = [Selling Price – (60% Distribution Cost on Selling Price + Production Cost)]
– 37% Processing Fee
= [$9.80 – ($5.88 + $2.99)] – 37%
= [$9.80 – $8.87] – 37%
= $0.93 –$0.34 = $0.58
Through Ingram or expanded distribution, you will earn $0.58.
