Help explaining how envato calulated my earning

See the attach pix below.

Note i already filled my tax form as a Non US author. How the heck did a $20 get a net profit of $5.20 ?

You had 30% withheld on the sale as it came from the US, for some people it’s avoidable/reducible, so a couple of question I need to ask, where do you live? and have you provided your Tax ID Number with the form?

I have. Infact i did before submitting my first and single item.

Am from Nigeria btw.

Unfortunately Nigeria doesn’t have tax treaty with the US, so you’ll always get 30% of the item price withheld from US sales only.

Oooops. thats really unfortunate.

Might consider pulling the product off envato entirely as this wouldn’t be sustainable.
