My name is Chuck Heintzelman. I've been a software developer for over 30 years. For the last dozen years I've been a fiction writer.
My wife and I run BundleRabbit. The company behind BundleRabbit is Kydala Publishing, Inc.
BundleRabbit started as a DIY ebook bundling service. We then expanded the "collaboration engine" which allowed multiple authors to share in the royalties from an ebook bundle. So now we also allow authors to publish collaborative projects where we split the royalties between the participants of the project.
Initially, BundleRabbit was called BundlesExpress. After it was reported that people didn't see BUNDLES EXPRESS when typing the url, instead they saw BUNDLE SEX PRESS, we changed the name. Because the rabbit logo had already been created for BundlesExpress, we picked the name BundleRabbit.
We used to allow direct purchases from BundleRabbit's website, but with the Supreme Court decision on June 21, 2018 about sales tax collection in the United States, things became more complicated. We decided to wait until things settle down enough for us to comply with sales tax rules across all 50 states.
Unfortunately, when you purchase a box set outside BundleRabbit, we do not know about it. The only purchases we can show you are those made directly from the BundleRabbit site. You will have to log on to Kobo, Amazon, or whichever retailer you made your purchase from in order to see your purchase history from that retailer.
For outside sales channels (Kobo, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.) a sale appears on your royalty statement two months after the sale occurs. For example, let's say a bundle you're in is sold on June 15th at Amazon. We will receive the payment for that sale from Amazon on August 29th, thus it appears on your August royalty statement. Your August royalties are then paid the first week of September.
75% of each bundle sold is distributed to the authors and curator of the bundle. The curator receives 5% of each sale and 70% is distributed evenly across the authors in the bundle.
90% of each collaborative project sold is distributed based on the share percentages of each participant in the project.
