This section of the Stison system is where you will import your sales data. Prior to doing this, it is assumed that you will have set up the Royalties System so that sales can be imported to the correct places (for more information review the Getting Started with Royalties page).You will also need to have set up a default distributor and assigned a default sales type to them. (Details can be found under setting up your default distributor.) It is not necessary to have set the individual royalty schedules up already, however in order to run your statements, you will need to do this at some point. Information can be found in Royalties.
When you are ready, you can upload your sales figures to the system. How often you upload this information is entirely up to you. It will probably depend on how regularly you receive your sales figures, or perhaps how often you pay royalties to your contributors.
From the Royalties Menu choose Sales, and you will be taken to the following screen.
There are a number of options that are available on this screen as detailed below. Selecting the links below will allow you to find out more information about each area. For further information on each section, click on the title to take you to further details.
