Smashwords shipping to Amazon by year end.
According to Mark: "Amazon's previous target to start accepting our books was September. The new date is "end of year."
On royalties Mark had this to say, "the terms will be essentially the same as for our other retailers - 85% of what Amazon pays us we'll pay you. They pay us 70% for books priced $2.99-$9.99, and 35% for other points, so we'll pay 60% and 30%."
