Rate Card:
a.
As a subscription platform, we use the subscriber share model to allocate earnings. With this model, Contributor earnings are directly linked to the money collected from each individual subscriber. We look at each subscriber in turn and assign you a share of 50% of their net revenue based on how important your items were to them (i.e your share of all item points they used in that period).
