The good thing with AS is that with every normal sale it will outweigh SS by factor 3.3, 6.6 or 9.9. So one sale at AS of 99 cents you will need ten sales at SS to cover it.

The problem is that AS rarely has big sales. It seems they don't do extended licenses or just don't promote it. And then one good EL at SS will make up for all the lousy ten cents sales.

So what is better? If you don't go for both?



both, definitely - i don't recall anyone reporting an RPD of < 10c for SS

 i don't need 10 SS sales for each AS sale since SS continues to have more EL, SOD; so, my SS RPD averages 40-50c while AS averages 90c over the last year. and since SS sales are about 1/3 of SS, SS generates 2x the income compared to AS

ymmv

My concern is what happens if the SS bigger sales start to go away, then SS earnings will plummet. One could have a nightmare about endless 10 cent commissions!

always possible, but such calamity has been predicted by pessimists since the start of re-leveling.
