Getting Paid Your Royalties


How Do I Get Paid?


Direct deposit

Royalties are paid through direct deposit to your financial institution account. You can set up either by using your bank account or debit card number.

Direct deposit, also known as electronic funds transfer (EFT), is the fastest, most secure and environmentally friendly way to receive your royalty payments. Royalties will be paid in full approximately 60 days after the end of every month for all your sales, once total royalties earned are at least $30.00 USD. If your royalty earnings fall below $30.00 USD, we will keep a running total and issue payment once the amount exceeds $30.00 USD. You will receive the royalties in your local currency.


Readio pays royalties monthly. You will start to receive your direct deposits approximately 60 days after the end of the month in which the sale was recorded.
