Payment

XSCode automatically charges the Licensee’s through its payment method on the 1st of each calendar month.

The billed amount is for the sum of all active subscriptions during the previous month, regardless of when they started (calendric billing).

Such taxes shall only be borne by the Users, and XSCode will not be liable for handling taxes on revenue generated by Users.

Handling Fees

A handling fee shall be added to every subscription and will be reflected in the final price. Handling fees are calculated according to the following:

  • Subscriptions priced up to $100 / month = A fee of $0.3 + 5% of the subscription price is added.
  • Subscriptions priced $100 and upwards = A fee of 4.5% of the subscription price is added.

Payment Failure

XSCode will attempt to bill the payment method on the 1st of each calendar month. In case of failure, XScode will attempt to contact the Licensee and notify him/her on said failure. It is the Licensee’s responsibility to verify that the payment method provided is valid, and to replace or update it when required.

XSCode’s team will attempt to charge the payment method several times during a 7 day period after the initial payment failure. If payment processing has not been successful within 7 days, all active subscriptions of the Licensee will be cancelled, and access to the code repositories will be revoked.

During the aforementioned 7 day period, the licensee will still be able to access the code repositories. XSCode reserves the right to pursue legal action against clients who have not successfully paid their balance in full on time.

Payout

Licensors are entitled to receive the revenue actually generated (collected) by payments made by its Licensees after deduction of XSCode handling fees set forth above, and the commission as described below. Payout is calculated according to actual payments that were processed by XSCode, and not by active subscriptions. XSCode’s team will make its reasonable efforts to process all transactions. However, XSCode shall not be liable to compensate Licensors for subscriptions for which payment failure has occurred.

Nevertheless, Licensors will only be able to withdraw (receive) the above payment after the aggregated fees to be paid to them reached the minimal amount of US$50. If Licensor does not reach the forgoing minimal amount, its balance will be forwarded to the following month, until the minimal amount is reached.

Payout will be made automatically to the User on an EOM +30 basis. For example, Licensors will be paid at the end of February, for revenue generated by their repositories on January.

Payout will be done via an external vendor. Licensors shall be subject to the terms of service of vendor (link), such that Licensors shall have no claims against XSCode in this matter.
