earning needs explanation

Hello Guys

im new in themeforest . i have just made my first 5 sales and i have a question :

my theme price is 22$ :

this is my net earnings :

can you please explain to me how is it that i only get 18$ from 33$ ?

im not from the us.

thank you

  • Item selling for $33 — $33.00
  • Buyer fee of $12.00 — $21.00
  • Author fee of 37.5% — $13.125

So your earning per sale would be $13.125 (not sure how they round).

However, if you did not submit tax information, your country does not have an appropriate treaty with US, or your buyer is a US buyer, you’ll get charged backup withholding:

  • 30% withholding — $9.18

You can find the withholding amount on your statement page.
You can also see full breakdown of earnings on your statement page. It explains everything.
