Paypal Example: Book priced $5.00. Net is $4.55. If the book is only on Bookapy, then you get $3.95 per copy sold. If it's posted on SOL, SFS or FS, (as premier-only) then you get $4.18 per copy sold.
If you want to delete your books, then you can. However, Bookapy will have a 'read-on-the-site' service, so if your book is sold at least once, we have to keep one copy for viewing by those who purchase it. You can't take the book away from those who bought it.
