Uploaded to itch.io as a free game, want to know where I stand on royalties if people donate
Hello all! So I uploaded a free game I have been working on to itch.io, and I know that Epic requires royalty payments, but I have 2 questions, 1: What if people donate? It is a free game with the option to donate. That requires royalty too right? And 2: How does Epic get the money? Do I have to manually send them money out of my wallet, is it linked through my pay-pal?
I am just confused by how Epic gets the royalty earnings.
Until I get the knowledge I need, I am just going to turn off payment options.
Thanks in advance :)

This page details how to make royalty payments.
As for donations, this is addressed in Section 4(7). Normally there are no royalties for donations, but if the donations get you game access or in-game benefit, then royalties are owed.
