Getting Paid / A Simple Example


You are Daniel Filmmaker. You made a movie titled The Daniel Movie (2018) that you would like to sell online for $5.99. The Daniel Movie makes 100 sales each month during the first two months it's available. Let's see how much you, Daniel Filmmaker, would earn from your work.

The Daniel Movie (2018) $5.99
Month 1 Sales 100 @ $5.99 = $599.00
Month 2 Sales 100 @ $5.99 = $599.00

Vimeo's annual fees, monthly fees, transaction fees and royalty calculation is a little more interesting. Transaction fees are variable at 4% - 17% per transaction. So, let's do the math with the most inexpensive Vimeo option, which would be $20/month billed annually as a $240 one time fee and average the transaction fees to 10.5%.$724.98$242.49

*( $599 - 62.90 ) * 90% ) = $482.49 - $240 Annual Fees with payments received 30 days after the sale occurs via Paypal
