A Message to the ACX Community

In these rapidly changing times, our creative community is top of mind. We wanted to let you know about a few changes we’ve made to help support our independent creators and entrepreneurs in light of evolving challenges. 

Additional Royalty Support – To reduce the financial impact of COVID-19 on the creative community, we are temporarily paying an additional 5% royalty on all sales of your ACX audiobooks through Audible, Amazon, and iTunes for sales during the months of April, May, and June. So, if you distribute your title exclusively through ACX, your total royalties will temporarily increase to 45% during this period (22.5% for those choosing Royalty Share), and for non-exclusively distributed titles, your total royalties will temporarily increase to 30% on sales during this period.

Employee Safety – All of our associates are working remotely at this critical time. You may experience delays in response times as we make this transition, but we are striving to maintain an outstanding creative experience.

Additional Educational Resources – ACX has always been committed to providing accessible user education through our ACX University program and this blog, and as new writers and performers turn to audiobooks as a way to reinforce their earnings, we’re doubling down on connecting you to experts and resources to make your creative journey easier and more successful.   

Even though indie creators and entrepreneurs may be accustomed to working from home, we know everyone’s lives have been disrupted during this period of uncertainty. Keep an eye on our blog and newsletter for ideas from your peers on how to create stability and work productively.

We wish you and your loved ones safety and good health,

The ACX Team

  1. Thank you very much! This is a timely, generous action on the part of ACX and I appreciate it. One question – is ACX still paying a royalty when promo codes are redeemed, and if so, how much? Thank you.

  2. Thank you so much!!

  3. Thank you so much, ACX😊

    Hello everyone! I am new to this but, it has been about a week since I have received a message from my right’s holder. I have questions about what I should do about this project I am working on. Who do I contact about this?

    • Hi Elaine – sorry to hear you’ve had some difficulty. Please contact support@acx.com from the email address associated with your account and include details about the production. Cheers! – Scott J.

  9. Thank you. If you would kindly approve my audio book or put the files back up for me to correct as you require, I would love to participate. Submitted March 11th. Please, pretty please, help me to launch!

  10. Thank you! I am only sorry I missed this notice sooner. I am posting new social media messages about my Audible book, Glad Farm: A Memoir, and already have two new orders!

  11. Are you going to comment on the fact that you changed the rules of the contracts signed before you decided to take our royalties away for promo codes? Because i had several books in production when you changed that rule with no notice.
