You can view your credits by going to your profile page and clicking "Account", up in the corner beside "Edit Profile". This will bring up a dropdown menu, and "Credits" is one of the options, just below "Email preferences". Clicking "Credits" should take you to your credits account page.

This is only partly connected, but be aware that if you are showing a discount on your book, or anyone else’s (for example, $5.99 for the ebook), this does not mean that the book is discounted for everyone. While the credit system has been largely dismantled by Inkshares, in some instances (syndicate purchases is one I know of) you will still earn a few credits. Inkshares takes your credits into account when you are viewing book pages, and shows the discount. I can’t find a way to view how many credits you might have, however, or a list of exactly why you might have earned them.

Don’t tell people "my book is discounted!" because it is only discounted for you. At least, this is my understanding of it.

I’d email hello at asking.

The e-book is $15 if you choose hardcover for the print option, but only $10 if you choose paperback for the print option. Aside from that, I don’t think there’s any way to change the price. I guess the idea must be to have a standard amount for everything that’s funding.

Hardcover’s a really hard sell, in my opinion, and probably not a great idea unless you’re an established author with a ton of fans. But I might be a little on the tightfisted side.

The eBook is always half the cost of the physical book. If you choose hardcover, your eBook will be set at $15. 
If you want to switch you’ll have to email Inkshares and ask them to reset your campaign.

Can you set your own? I tired to figure it out myself but am having any luck. I don’t want my e-reader selling for $15 and would like to change it.
