How Is Sales Tax Handled?

Sales tax will be collected on sales in some states as required. Not all states charge sales tax on digital products. As a publisher of digital products through our marketplace, we submit the taxes collected to states, so our sellers don’t need to. Sellers who sell on other platforms, such as your own blog, are responsible for collecting and submitting taxes on sales outside of our website if you have nexus in that state. You can view the number of sales for each state on your seller dashboard. Read more about Nexus from online tax companies like Taxjar or Avalara.

What methods are available for seller payouts?

We only use PayPal for payouts.  If you do not have a PayPal account, then you can not receive payouts or sell products on our platform.  For this reason, we require a PayPal email to be added during your shop setup.  

How to Change My Paypal Email for payouts?

Sellers can change their PayPal email address in your Dashboard from the Edit My Shop tab.

What is the fee charged by PayPal?

Paypal charges a fee for each monthly payout.  The fee is deducted from the monthly net earnings.  The fee is 2% of the amount sent up to a maximum fee amount, depending on your country and region.  See PayPal’s website for further information on the fees they charge.

How to update a product file?

When editing or updating a product file, you’ll need to:

1. Click “My Products” from your Dashboard to view all products.

2. Click “Edit” for the specific product 3. Delete the old file by clicking the trash icon next to the product file.

4. Upload the new file.

5. Save by clicking the red “Edit Product” button.

6. Check that that the download is correct by clicking the red “Test Download” button from the product page and opening it Sellers sometimes upload the incorrect product file or occasionally the files don’t upload completely.  Products that don’t download may be switch off by the site administrator until updated by a seller.  By verifying that your products download and open correctly you’ll avoid extra work in the future.

When are payouts sent?

Payouts are sent to sellers using PayPal once a month for the previous month’s net earnings, usually during the 2nd and 3rd weeks.  We aim to send payouts before the 21st of each month.
