The fees will be deducted from your earnings and you'll have access to a breakdown report to see exactly what you earned and which fees are deducted.

Formulas & Examples


Publisher Share for Individual Sales

PS = SaP - AS - GF - BS

Examples of fees depending on different amounts of cumulative sales

Example #1: You as publisher (only)

  • Less than $401 of accumulated sales:
    • SaP = $9.99
    • GF = 12.5%
    • AS = 50%
    • BS = 25%

PS = $9.99 (SP) - $1.25 (GF) - $ 4.37 (AS) - $2.50 (BS) = $1.87

Example #2: You as publisher (only)

  • More than $901 of accumulated sales:
    • SaP = $9.99
    • GF = 12.5%
    • AS = 50%
    • BS = 10%

PS = $9.99 (SP) - $1.25 (GF) - $ 4.37 (AS) - $0.99 (BS) = $3.38

It's important to mention that you can be affiliate and publisher at the same time and get earnings if you drive the traffic that converts into a sale or subscription.

Example #1: You as publisher and affiliate

  • Less than $401 of accumulated sales:
    • SaP = $9.99
    • GF = 12.5%
    • AS = 50%
    • BS = 25%

PS = $9.99 (SP) - $1.25 (GF) - $ 4.37 (AS) - $2.50 (BS) = $1.87

AS = $4.37

Total Revenue = $1.87 (PS) + $4.37 (AS) = $6.24

Example #2: You as publisher and affiliate

  • More than $901 of accumulated sales:
    • SaP = $9.99
    • GF = 12.5%
    • AS = 50%
    • BS = 10%

PS = $9.99 (SP) - $1.25 (GF) - $ 4.37 (AS) - $0.99 (BS) = $3.38

AS = $4.37

Total Revenue = $3.38 (PS) + $4.37 (AS) = $7.75

Earnings for Streaming

We decided to calculate the streaming earnings in the most simplistic way we found.

Above we explained already how a Value Per View (VpV) is calculated but here we provide an example for better comprehension.

In a 30 day period, let's say April of 2018, BotComics billed $2500 for new subscriptions and the customers streamed 5000 times so the VpV = $2500/5000 views = $0,50/view.

Let's then provide an hybrid sale/stream example for a publisher with a single product published: 

  • Time Period: 30 días
  • Product Price: $10
  • # of Individual Sales: 35
  • # of views: 106
  • Billed New Recurring Subscriptions: $2893
  • Total # of streams: 9432
  • VPV: $0,3067

Individual Sales + Streaming Sales:

Individual Sales Total: 35 sales x $10  = $350

Total Streaming Sales: 106 views x $0.3067 = $32.51

Total Sales: $382.51


Earnings Breakdown:

SP = $382.51

GF = $47.82 (12.5%)

AS = $167.36 (SP x 50% - 12.5%)

BS = $95.63 (SP x 25%)

_________________________

PS = $36.06

If you are publisher and affiliate and the same time = $167.36 + $36.06 = $203.42
