This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during December 2015.
The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.
For a full breakdown of article related progress and earnings, see the complete article on InfoBarrel.
Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.
RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.
It appears that Fizzy has been sold to new owners, and it looks as if they have discontinued the profit sharing programme. Whether or not the monies still owed will now be paid is therefore debatable.
Amazon affiliate earnings increased again, to the highest ever, and the 7.5% referral rate was reached for the first time. Some sales were due to items sold over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend that weren’t shipped until December, but there was also an awful lot of Christmas activity. Amazon UK sales were also the best ever.
Earnings from selling role playing game supplements on RPGNow decreased, as expected, as the recent high was largely down to sale purchases.
Overall earnings were the best in quite some time, possibly the best ever.
Some of the links in this section are affiliate links that can earn me a commission, or revenue share, at no extra expense to you.
Accumulated income is earnings from the month that were accumulated to accounts, to be paid out at a later date.

Amazon UK: $30.58 ($22.74) – This has been converted to US$ from UK£
