How long does it take for a sale to be listed in my online "Sales Activity Report"?

The information in the "Sales Report" is updated throughout the quarter to give you an idea of how and where your book is selling. We deliver sales information to you as soon as we can, however this data cannot be updated in real time and may not reflect finalized information.

The time it takes a sale to be listed in your sales report is determined by the type of sale:

Sale Type Time Until Listed
Trafford Publishing Bookstore 72 hours
Consumer sales (i.e., call-in purchases through Trafford Publishing) 72 hours
Retail sales (e.g., Amazon.com) Four weeks or more

Please note: External retailers — Apple, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. — operate under their own schedules, and Trafford Publishing cannot control the frequency with which they report sales information.
