How much should I charge for my items?
It is up to you to decide how much you would like to charge for your files. You will be more likely to get more downloads when you charge less, which will result in a greater profit.
Where does the other 50% go?
Web hosting, marketing, and administrative costs.
What happens when you run a sale on the website?
When we run a sale we are helping to promote your files. We usually run site wide sales 2-3 times a year (Back to school and for some Yomim Tovim). The same equation as above will be used. For example: A $10 file on sale for 20% off is now sold for $8. We will then divide $8 by 50% which is $4, minus $0.15 transaction fee. You will receive a total of $3.85 each time the file is sold during the sale. When the sale is over the price will return to the original $10
