# Why I only get \$32 from \$104 sales?

Hello Everyone, I hope you all are doing great in your life.

SO recently I started selling on videohive and to learn this platform I uploaded only 1 item. There is no doubt that I learnt a lot of things through this forum and by making some mistakes but one thing which is really bothering me and that is,

“I GOT 4 SALES AND MY PRICE IS \$26 WITH REGULAR LISCENECE SO MY FOR 4 SALES MY TOTAL VOLUME IS \$104 BUT IN MY EARNINGS I SEE THAT I ONLY GET \$32, IS THIS RATE NORMAL OR DID I HAVE TO SETUP SOMETHING”

there is one more thing which I am not getting i.e. Author Fee for Sale(\$7)

Check your statements page, maybe those sale are from us customer and US withholding tax has taken from your earning.

( Item List Price - Buyer fee ) = Item Price
( Item Price - TAX ) - Author fee = Author Earning

Check potnetially Us withholding tax depending on where you are based:

US Tax Treaties:

Thanks

\$26 - \$6 = \$20 (After Buyer fee)
\$20 x (37.5 / 100) = \$7.5 (Authur Fee)

So, \$26 - (\$6 - \$7.5) = \$12.5

• You get \$12.5 for a normal sale.

If a sale is from USA, there will be an extra tax.

\$20 x (30 / 100) = \$6 (US Witholding Tax)
So, \$12.5 - \$6 = \$6.5

• You get only \$6.5 for a US sale.

You received \$32 for 4 sales,

which means,
You got 1 sale outside US. (\$12.5)
You got 3 sales in US. (\$6.5 x 3)

So,
\$12.5 + (\$6.5 x 3) = \$32

Best,
