Some questions about earnings

Hello there,

I’m a bit confused about the earnings I’m receiving. I’m still a level 2 author and I’m not sure if my earnings are acting weird or its supposed to be that way. Now i know that there are some cuts taken from the actual item price based on author level and a fixed fee, anyways here are the images


When a 12$ product sells, i usually get 5$ or so, more or less. Today, the same product sold when i had 70$ and my earnings only increased to 72.89$ (as shown in the image)

This is the last made transaction (Note i had 70$ last night before this one sale)

Also, the 84.89$ total earnings value that shows in the first image, where is the remaining 10 or so dollars, what happened to that?

The only thing i can see is the US Royalty witholding tax, but im not sure if thats what it is.

If anyone can explain to me as to what is going on, would truly appreciate it.

in your last sale you received some less than around 5 because of US withholding TAX (in your sale: $1.50+$0.90=$2.40).

For reducing US backup withholding tax (24%) you should to submit your TAX information form. If you submit the form with your TAX information then only tax will be taken for US sale and TAX percentage depends on your country.
US Tax Treaties:

If your country does not have a tax treaty with the U.S then you have to 30% US Royalty Withholding Tax on US sales. I think this condition applied in your case.
