Kindle Unlimited KENP rate for October 2017 is up by 2% to $0.0045

The Kindle Unlimited KENP payment rate for October 2017 saw a slight rise of just 2%, edging up to $0.0045 from $0.0044 in September.

The KDP Select Global Fund hit yet another new high of $19.7 million, up by $200,000 from $19.5 million paid out in September.

The KENP rate in the UK showed a stronger increase of 6% from September’s £0.0033 to £0.0035 for October, equivalent to around $0.0046 at today’s currency conversion rate.

Dividing the October 2017 KDP Select fund of $19.7 million by the US KENP rate of $0.0045 results in a total of around 4.37 billion KENPs read during the month, down from 4.43 billion KENPs in September, 4.73 billion in August and 4.75 billion in July. Figures for previous months were 4.28 billion in June, 4.16 billion in May and 3.95 billion for April.

In the calendar year 2017 so far the fund has paid out a total of $183.6 million, which is nearly at the full year’s total of $186 million paid out in 2016.

If November and December produce funds of $18 million then we can expect an overall total for 2017 of around $220 million. That would represent an increase of 18% from the total fund for 2016.

The rate of increase has slowed from 2016 when the grand total of $186 million was nearly $50 million more than the $131.6 million total paid out over 2015, an annual rise of 41%.
