On our Book stats page (on both our Web and Phone apps), you can now see the royalties earned for each book format sold just below the number of units sold.
This can be useful when you want to see the correlation between the units sold and the royalties earned!
Our Android app update (version 4.5.1) has now been released and the notifications issue is now fixed.
When you open the app now you will be asked to "Allow notifications" from KDP Champ.
On our latest update of the Android App (version 4.4.4), some users might have stopped receiving notifications.

Have a great week ahead!

Earlier today we had an issue on our side that resulted in sending multiple emails for your Monthly Report.
The issue is now fixed and we really apologize for the inconvenience caused and hope you have a good day!
Since a lot of our users liked the latest update for Unit royalties on the Overall Dashboard tables, we have made an improvement for an even better and more customizable dashboard.
You can show Hide or Show the Unit royalties on the Dashboard tables to suit your needs by clicking the "Toggle Unit Royalties" button.
We have now added the royalties for each sale type on the Overall monthly stats & Overall daily stats tables on your Dashboard.
The Royalties can be found under the Units amount in parenthesis "()"
This can be particularly useful when you want to quickly check what amount of your royalties is from Ebooks, Paperbacks, Hardcovers etc.
The issue with some of the Book images not showing properly is now resolved!
Some users have reported that some of their book images are not showing properly.
We have identified the issue and we will fix it by the end of day today!
Thank you for your understanding!
Some users have reported that their Pre-orders data were not updating.
We have identified and fixed the issue!
Please let us know if you experience any further issues with Pre-orders.
Due to popular demand, we've been working tirelessly on a new feature that will help users who manage more than 1 KDP account, view and analyze their data from a single account.
- Some users manage their account and their partner's account
- Other users have an agency and manage more than 1 accounts
- Other users have one account under their name and another account under their company (different entities)
This feature is called the "Master Account" and is suitable for all use cases.
The release is initially on our web app only and in a week or so will also be available on our Android & iOS apps.
Please read more on how to set up your Master account here
The calculation of the Percentage change numbers for the Overall monthly stats and the Projected royalties is now adjusted to be more accurate
What has changed in the calculations?
Today's data are now excluded from the calculations because the current day has not yet concluded.
So for example, if the date today is the 5th, the percentage change will be calculated by comparing the 1st - 4th of the last month and the current month because the 5
th of the month has not yet finished.
Year-Over-Year Stats! You can now go to "In-depth Statistics" "Year-Over-Year Stats" and see how your Net royalties have changed over the years for each month.
This is particularly useful when you want to do a more realistic comparison of your data over the years.
Currently this is available only on our web-app. Soon it will be available on our mobile apps!
Amazon is still experiencing some technical issues with some ADs reporting. We are monitoring the situation closely and will keep you posted!
On the Bookshelf & BSRs page you can now select multiple books and apply tags to them all in one batch. This is useful for authors that have a lot of books and want to apply tags to their books quickly.
The Amazon Ads allocation issue is slowly improving as Amazon is releasing new patches to fix it.
We have already noticed a lot of our users' Ads data are now being reported correctly.
We will let you know once everything is back to normal.
We are waiting for Amazon to fix all the issues.
Thank you for your understanding!
Hello everyone, we wanted to explain a bit further what is happening with Amazon Ads and why some of you (not all users are affected) can see Non-Allocated AMS Ad Spend on your statistics pages.
The reason for this, is the fact that some AD Groups on AMS do not load to show how much each of your books has spent, therefore, KDP Champ cannot allocate the spending to any of your books.
We are waiting for Amazon to fix this issue and we will adjust everyone's spending after the fix.
If you have any questions about this, please send us a message on our live chat and we will be more than happy to explain and help you further.
Thank you for your understanding,
The KDP Champ team
Amazon is experiencing technical issues reporting the correct AD spending for each book.
Once fixed, all your AD spending will automatically be correctly allocated to your books.
Thank you for your understanding!
Amazon Ads discrepancies from the 1st to the 6th of June 2023 are now resolved!
Amazon Ads might have discrepancies because currently Amazon has issues with reporting the correct amounts.
This is the statement Amazon has released:
`We're experiencing a temporary delay in our sponsored ads reporting between June 1,2023 and June 6,2023. We're working to fix it. No campaign metrics have been lost, and any missing information will be available after resolution. We apologize for any inconvenience and will update when resolved.`
Once Amazon resolves the issues, we will re-synchronize all accounts to display the correct amounts!
Thank you for your patience!
The issue should now be resolved and your sales should shortly be reflected on your Dashboard.
We are still monitoring the situation in case it happens again!
Thank you for your patience in this matter!
Amazon KDP is experiencing some technical issues with data reporting. We are waiting for the issue to be resolved by Amazon.
Once the issue is resolved, your KDP Champ account will automatically re-synchronize and get up to date!
Thank you for your understanding!
We have now updated our Chrome and Firefox extensions to allow you to clear your KDP browser session and potentially fix the issue with cookies expiring too often!
Our extension will now include a button called "Refresh KDP Dashboard session" when clicked, a new fresh tab will open that will allow you to log in to your KDP Dashboard and submit a fresh set of cookies that should last longer!
In the past day, we have seen that some users are experiencing an issue with their KDP cookies expiring very often (every few hours).
We advise you to read through our cookies troubleshooting guide here on how to resolve this issue and let us know if you need any further help.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused you!
Addition & BUG Fix
We fixed the issue with some users not being able to reset their dashboard filters successfully on their Android and iOS devices!
We have now added the option to filter by Book Tags and Book Series to all of our statistics pages including:
- Dashboard Filters
- Ads Monitoring
- Author Stats
- Book Stats
- Marketplace Stats
- Month vs. Month stats
- Historical Stats
Please do let us know if you experience any issues!
We have now changed the Ads ROI metric to AMS ROI which is calculated by (Sales amount from Amazon Ads - Amazon AD Spend) / Amazon AD Spend
Why did we change it?
Because using only the Amazon Ad Spend and Amazon Sales amount is more accurate rather than also using External expenses and Facebook Ad spend.
The reason is that only Amazon reports how many sales you earned from your Ads, and therefore including anything else other than Amazon spending and Amazon Sales amount will just show inaccurate results.
You can still use the Overall ROI for analyzing your ROI across all royalties and expenses.
We have now included in all of our pages the following:
Overall ROI: This is the Return on Investment using the Total Royalties (both Organic and Inorganic Royalties) (Total royalties - AD Spend) / AD Spend
Ads ROI: This is the Return on Investment using the Inorganic Sales amount only (Sales amount coming from Ads Only) (Sales amount from Ads - AD Spend) / AD Spend
Overall ROAS: This is the Return on Ad Spend using the Total Royalties (both Organic and Inorganic Royalties) Total royalties / AD Spend
Ads ROAS: This is the Return on Ad Spend using the Inorganic Sales amount only (Sales amount coming from Ads Only) Sales amount from Ads / AD Spend
This should give you a better indication of how your Spending is affecting both your Organic and Inorganic sales!
Book Series stats is now available on our web-app!
Do you like crunching numbers?
Have you ever wondered how your Book series is performing?
How is Book #3 is performing relative to Book #1 or how Book #5 performing relative to Book #4 for example?
Then wonder no more!
Follow our guide here and start analyzing your Book series data!
The new Stats page can be found under "In-depth Statistics" -> "Book Series stats"

Please note: If up until now you were adding your All Stars Bonus manually through our External royalties functionality, remember to remove it to avoid duplicates!

Our Facebook page can be found here
Another cool update to help you adjust your AD spending and improve your net royalties per marketplace!
Hover over your spending column data on your Book stats table and you will be able to see a Marketplace breakdown along with its Return On Advertising Spend (ROAS).
ROAS is calculated as follows:
(Gross royalties for marketplace / Spending for marketplace)
So if you earned $2,000 and spent $1,000, your ROAS would be 2.
Have you ever wondered how your sales across the world will look on a map? Well, wonder no more!
Head to your Marketplace stats and have a look at your sales across the world through our interactive map!

When you click this button a pie chart will appear with the spending in the different marketplaces for the specific book, so you can easily analyse where you are spending the most.
In addition to that, on your Book stats and Ads Monitoring pages, you can now see with light red and light green background colors your books that lose or make money. This should help you easily focus on what is more important.
Paperback & Hardcover orders have now been updated by Amazon KDP.
We started an automated synchronization process for the 20th and 21st of January 2023 (the dates that were affected) and shortly you should see your missing book sales appear!
Paperback & Hardcover orders have now slowly started being reported correctly!
Paperback & Hardcover sales are not reported correctly!

Thank you for your patience and please res assured that we will keep an eye out for you!

This information will help you analyse your books without having to search for their details based on their ASINs.
The Journal events on your graphs should now show a small image of your book cover (if you added a specific book to your event).
This should help you to distinguish between the different events more easily!

BSRs are updated once a day and you can view the Historical BSRs vs your royalties and spending by clicking the icon!
Please note, the BSRs are reported for your top 200 books only. The top 200 books are based on your royalties!

We now started working on the functionality to enable you to put books in a series so that we can provided you with stats for Series Sell-Through and KU Series Read-Through.
Important! Up until now, we were using different exchange rates than Amazon KDP. As a result, you might have seen some discrepancies in your data.

Thank you for your patience!
Starting tomorrow we will start migrating users to the new Dashboard reports.
What does that mean?
It means that KDP Champ will start synchronizing with the new KDP Dashboard and be more accurate!
If everything goes to plan, all users should be migrated by early next week.
Thank you for your patience!
Some users have noticed that their new Amazon KDP dashboard shows Orders that are not showing on their Orders tab and as a result, those orders are not showing on KDP Champ even though the royalties are correctly calculated.
These issues have been introduced during Amazon's latest update with the KDP reports beta.
It might take some time before Amazon fixes these issues. Once they do, KDP Champ will be fixed automatically since the issue is on KDP's side and not on our side.
We will keep you posted with any updates.
In the meantime, we will try our best to keep KDP Champ as accurate as possible!
Thank you for your understanding.

There are a few reasons as to why you might want to do this:
- You might want to get mass sale notifications instead of getting notified every few minutes.
- You might want to get notified only a few times per day.
- You might want to get less distracted by notifications.
- Or any other reason...
Best date/Best month heading on graphs now displays the best date based on the selection of your graph. For example, if you select Book Sales from your graph options, then the best day will be the day you had the most Book sales (units sold) whereas if you select Book royalties the best day will be the day you had the most Royalties earned from Book sales
You can now set the Royalties Tax percentage and the Ad Spend tax percentage for each individual marketplace on your Profile page. This should help you have a more accurate representation of your earnings and spending!
Notifications are now improved.
Some users have experienced duplicate sales notifications.
One notification when a unit is ordered and a second notification when the royalty for the unit ordered was added to their KDP Account.
We have now improved our algorithm to eliminate this issue!
You should now receive a sale notification only when a unit is ordered.
Thank you to the users that brought this to our attention.

AD Units sold are now renamed to AD Orders. Each AD Order can have multiple Units sold and since Amazon does not report the exact amount of Units sold per AD Order, we felt that it would only be right to display accurate numbers. Therefore, until we find a solution to accurately display the AD Units sold per AD Order, we will be showing you the AD Orders number.
Having an ACTIVE membership before the 1st of March 2022 will ensure that you will stay with the OLD pricing plan. Otherwise, if you wish to re-activate your membership or join after the 1st of March 2022, you will be charged based on the new Pricing plan.
