Stison's Royalty Manager bases the contract rules against the author of a book, however it is entirely possible that the person being paid may be different.
Some examples may include:
1. An author has died and the royalties are paid to one or more descendants
2. An agent requires payment along side an author.
The system will cope with this clearly and simply. To setup of change a Payee you should navigate to Sales / Royalties and then choose the Royalties option. From there you will need to select the book you wish to work on.
Clicking on the book will bring up the Initial royalties screen.
You should then select the Payee Tab. You will see the following:
By default the contributor will be set to get paid 100% of the Royalties calculated. Clicking on the name of the Payee allows you to change this. You can set the payees to any configuration you like.
To change or add an additional payee you will need to change default payee. Click on the payee name and you will get the following window.
From there you should change the split to be anywhere between 0.1% and 100% and then click Update. [Note if you want to remove the payee altogether select the check box to the left of the name and then click on the Remove Selected Button].
You can then add a new Payee, by clicking on Create New. This will open a new window that will allow you to select the payee.
For a payee to show up in the list they must all ready be a Contact within Stison and should have the Royalties Checkbox ticked. For more details click here.
Below you can see a few examples showing how this will look.
