So I’m having a lot of trouble understanding how the Envato calculation work. I’m at 70% commission.
So if I calculate a sale based on the statement values, and then I calculate it by multiplying the price of the item with 0.7, the results are different, sometimes in my advantage, sometimes in my disadvantage (I am not referring to the sales that fall into the US Royalty Withholding Tax category)
Let’s take a simple product, that doesn’t include author fees and support: a PSD template.
REAL PRICE: 12usd
STATEMENT PRICE: 10usd
AUTHOR FEE FOR SALE: 1.25usd
Based on the real price and on my 70% commission, my profit should be 12x0.7=8.4usd.
But based on the statement values, my profit is 10-1.25=8.75usd
So my question is, why is there a difference?
