Track your sales
From March 2021, all StreetLib users have enabled access to the new improved Dashboard and Analytics environment. Read more in this article .
Through StreetLib, you can get a global overview of your book's sales, both paper and eBook versions. Check the number of sales and earnings, and use filters for more targeted results (period, titles, etc.).
You can track your sales from our Analytics page. On this page, you can check your sales by filtering by period, title, ISBN and many other criteria.
Remember that the sales you will see are automatically set as "temporary", which may differ from the "final" for several factors (basically, the final reports are sent from the stores 30 days after the end of the month in which the sale took place). Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Tolino, 24Symbols, Google Play, OverDrive, Scribd, Barnes & Noble, Libreka only provide us with finalized sales data at the end of the following month. For example, the final sales figures for November will only sent to us at the end of December, and so we display them at the beginning of January. For this, we recommend waiting for the final Analytics, to check actual sales.
Let's see how you can monitor your sales:
In your general dashboard, click on Analytics:
The page that will appear is a set of tools, information and data useful for tracking all the movements associated with your titles.
Let's analyze each section specifically.
The first part of the page includes a visual graph on the trend with a series of possible applicable filters:
You can filter by ISBN, Publisher, Author, Title, Country, Language, Format, Genre, Business Model, Store and Collection.
You can save the filter to get to this view always quickly (we explain how to proceed here)
You can choose a specific period to analyze considering only temporary sales or only confirmed ones:
Please, remind that the temporary sales data we get from the stores on a daily basis can differ from the fiscal sales data we receive at the end of the month, if there are returns or price changes, for instance.
NB: Our invoicing and payments procedures rely on the fiscal sales data we receive at the end of the month, and not on the temporary data.
The second part is even more intuitive and specific: the two graphs immediately show two filters (the most important to be aware of your sales): the revenues divided by type of product (eBook, paper or audiobook) and those divided by Business Model (which varies according to your distributions on each store).
Please note that there are different price models: because each store has its own. Normally they are 4: Wholesale - Agency - Lending and Subscriptions (which are more or less the same), in both there is no download, because the reader reads from the app but does not download files; it's a streaming. And the payment of the revenew to the author depends on the degree of reading of each article (eg: the more a book is read, the more I pay you, within a certain limit).
Immediately afterward, we wanted to create a summary page divided by "Best of": a descending ranking from the store in which you made the most sales, or from the title that sells the most (and so on) to know which one to aim for the most. In this section, at the top right, you can download the CSV to work on the report obtained.
The last section is the division between revenues by unit and by transaction. By Unit, we intend a single item subject to one or more transactions, while transactions are the number of copies sold for one or more units. For example, the detected quantity of 10 will correspond to the transactions of a single unit (if the quantity relates to the copies of a single item sold) or more units (if the quantity relates to the sold copies of multiple items).
To finish as best we can, we could not fail to insert an interactive map to immediately see which countries you have the most audience on.
And now, good luck populating these interesting graphics!
