Does That's Rights! for Rights Sellers generate royalty statements?

Yes. That's Rights! generates royalty statements for your authors. That's Rights! keeps track of your licensing activities, and calculates royalties due to your authors, illustrators and other contributors. You can define complex rules for authors' and contributors' remuneration (fixed fees, escalating percentages, with or without withholdings, etc.).

If you only need to calculate author royalties for sales of your own ISBNs, you can use EasyRoyalties. If you have both sales and licensing activities, you can purchase That’s Rights! for Rights Sellers + EasyRoyalties as a single application, providing a complete solution.
