When do the third party vendors report sales?


I'm new to Smashwords so I'm wondering if anyone could tell me when the third party vendors such as iTunes and Kobo report their sales for the second quarter?

Thanks!

It's a big mess of times and kinds of sales. Most are about 3 months behind. Sony is the best at about a month behind. I am trying to track sales, since I've had things listed through SW for over a year, but it's tough. Some don't report free stuff at the same time as they do actual sales. I keep checking and double checking and comparing against my spreadsheet.

It does help to look at the upper left corner of the reports page after you click on a year. You can see the totals for each retailer that have been reported. So once your figures match those (if you are trying to track the monthly breakdown), you can at least easily tell if more have been reported.

Joan,
Thanks. I'll go click around the reports area and see what I see.

I'm on B&N under Nook Press and it's got a nice sales chart that updates daily.
