Does anyone know anything about this? As my ebooks are already published via KDP Amazon.com I’m not sure how or why an aussie author would benefit.

If we publish via  kdp.amazon.com.au we get paid in AUD…but does that apply only to sales here in Australia? What about international sales?

I have a ton of questions and no answers. Can anyone help?
