More Control

You set the list price and keep 80% of the royalties on every sale. Our distribution fee is always just 20% of the royalties you earn, so we only make money when you make money.

Here’s an example with a $10 audiobook*

Infographic that shows how a $10 audiobook's royalty breaks down.

*In this example, an audiobook with a list price of $10 is sold by an a-la-carte retailer with a 50% royalty rate. In most cases, your royalty will be paid on the list price you set, regardless of the sale price to the consumer. Royalty rates and sale prices differ by retailer. We've got all the details in our distribution agreement.

How much does it cost to make an audiobook?

An average audiobook created with Findaway Voices has about 50,000 words and costs between $1,000 and $2,000. We can estimate the cost of your audiobook by multiplying a per finished hour narrator rate with the estimated length of your finished recording. The longer the book, the higher the estimate will be.
