Profits pleaseeee answer the question!!!!
Web Features

Does anyone could answer this question? I have written this three times and I’ve been referred to the Frequent setting ask questions. I’ve read it  but I don’t understand what happens if blurb discount because of the volume sold. What happens to the profit I supposed I set up in the price. Is it still respected eventhough you make a discounto to the person who buys a copy? I ill appreciate if someone answered this question to me.  

I have a question regarding setting a price. If I set a price at 60 dolars, the cost of operation and material is a total of 47. I’m trying to have a margin of 15 dollars approximately  of profit. But What happen if someone order more than 20 pieces and you offer the book cheaper? What happen with the margin of profit? Is it respected or Do you absorbed the difference? (By difference I mean when you charge $40[this is sthe cost of the size of my book]  for the cost of operation + the $five dollar for a single copy when in a volume less than 10? How does it work because it is not clear for me? I’ve read the FQ guide in orange, but this is still not clear for me. Could you give a more detailed feedback about this?

Questions about the about selling books within the fund raising program
Web Features

Hello!
My book came out really well. My customers are asking me for more copies, but I have a concerned. My customer and I agreed on sell this book for fund raising, but I don’t understand the proceedings regarding the selling.

BOOK, FIRST EDITION (THE PUBLISHING FOR THIS EDITION IS NOT FOR FUND RAISING PURPOSES)
1.- If the book have three authors, how does the cost is dividing when we generate a check through the different copies we may sell through blurb?
2.- If I make public the announcement of my book and I set a cost, and this first edition is not  for the fund raising purposes, but then I make several changes in the book and the second edition is meant to  be sold for the fund raising, Doesn’t this fact have a conflict by doing two different public announcements with different costs?

BOOK SECOND EDITION (tHE PUBLISHING OF THIS BOOK IS FOR FUND RAISING PURPOSES)
3.- Regarding the edition for the fund raising, when we set the cost, How do you channel the earnings towards the organization?
4.- Do you deposit the earnings of the book or do you generate a check to the name of the organization?
5.- How long it takes for the organization to receive the money?
6.- How does it work if only a percentage of the total cost goes to the organization? How do you divide the checks (or payments)?
7.- If I buy to blurb 500 books and then I need to sell them outside of blurb, I am allowed to do that?

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hear from your feedback

Size of the pictures
BookSmart

Sorry, for some reason I posted the message without finishing it. When I’m draggin photos onto the boxes I’m trying to respect the specified sizes as much as I can since the pictures I’m using are quite big (eventhough they are jpes). However, Is there any way of leaving the photos in their original size and not having problems when I dragg them and I’ve got the yellow sign that the size is too big? What happens is that I made PDF proofs  and I noticed that they look pixelated eventhough I reduced them at the specified size of the box.

I099 Form for IRS
General Interest

"If you make over $10 in a calendar year through sales of your book in Blurb’s Bookstore, Blurb is required to file a 1099 with the IRS. Blurb does not withhold taxes from your checks, so you’re responsible for paying taxes on your profits"

I have a question regarding this. How does it work? Does anyone know if I have to look for an option in the website to fill in this form or  Where should I send it to? Can anyone help me out with  this?
