1998-1st Quarter
5/3/98 Email from Amazon Books:

Dear Associate,

March 31, 1998 marked the end of the 1st calendar quarter of 1998, and it’s time for referral fee payments to our Associates. We’ve just mailed you a check for the referral fees you’ve earned during the past quarter.
This message explains how we derived the amount of your referral fee check and lists the qualifying books that were paid for and shipped from January 1, 1998 through March 31, 1998.
1. It is normal to expect that your total payment may not match the total of your weekly marketing reports. Some books ordered during the quarter may not have been shipped by March 31, and therefore would not appear in this quarter’s payment nor on this report. These
A. Orders placed late in the quarter and not yet shipped.
B. Orders containing special order titles that had not yet arrived at our warehouse.
C. Any orders cancelled by the customer before shipping.
2. Once these books are shipped, they will appear in the statement for the quarter in which they are shipped. All fees are paid at the end of the quarter in which the shipment is sent to the customer, not the quarter in which the order is placed.
3. If you earned less than $10 in referral fees through the prior quarter (which ended 3 months ago), you would not have received a
check at that time. In that case, you will see the unpaid amount included in the report below and added into this quarter’s payment.
4. Each line of the report lists the book title and the *total* amount we’ve collected from customers for shipments of that title. In other words, there is one line per title regardless of the number of copies shipped during the quarter.
