PAPERBACK VS. EBOOK SALES

Sales of my ebooks show up immediately on my reports, but the paperback sales don't. Oh, they're upfront with that issue, that there is a delay of a couple of days to a month or so. I'm finding this to be true...and frustrating. I still have a problem with impatience. Waiting is so difficult. (I want to know faster!) The scales are balancing. Will that stay the trend?

The only paperback book sale that has shown up on a report to me, was the one purchased directly through CreateSpace/Amazon. Some have told me they purchased through Barnes & Noble and have read at least two, a month ago, but none have shown up on a sales report yet. I expected a report of it by now.

This process is new to me. Every company has it's own rules and timeline. I like fast reporting, not waiting. I trust the B&N sales were made and delivered, but have not yet been reported to me. That particular process has time-specific steps and deadlines. I must be patient. (Patience does not come easily as time lags on.) I can't wait! How many have sold?
