I have just gone through my kindle store books and updated the percentages. The delivery charge is $0.15 per megabyte. Most of my ebooks are well under a megabyte, and that $0.15 isn't a minimum. For example, my book about Alfredo Catalani is 430KB and has an RRP of $2.99.

I used to get 0.35*2.99 = $1.04 per sale. I now get 0.70*(2.99-0.42*0.15) = $2.04 per sale, which is just over 68% of the RRP.

OTOH, Desbarollda is $6.00 and 3123KB.

I used to get 0.35*6 = $2.1 per sale. I now get 0.70*(6-3.05*0.15) = $3.88 per sale, which is about 65% of the RRP.

So no, it's not exactly 70%. But it's a lot better than a definite 35%!
