5. FEES AND PAYMENTS

 

5.1. FEES

 

PFP provides certain digital conversion products, readers, and other related products for a fee (“Products”).

5.2. PAYMENTS

 

Users can earn money by selling their books on the Pulp-Free app. Monies earned are calculated after certain fees, taxes and duties are deducted by Apple, Inc. and PFP respectively. Monies Earned are dependent on the Revenue Plan chosen by the User. The general formula for calculating monies earned is as follows;

 

1. SALES PRICE less 30% fee by Apple (may include additional taxes and duties at Apples discretion) = NET REVENUE

2. NET REVENUE less 30% fee by PFP = MONIES EARNED

 

Monies Earned by Users will be paid to User, either by check or by PayPal, when at least $50 has accumulated in their Monies Earned account. Once the Users Monies Earned account has accumulated the minimum amount noted, PFP will send Monies Earned within 30 days of receiving the corresponding Net Revenues from Apple.
