Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

What is a Quarter and what royalties are owed?

I don't fully understand about those 3000$ for product every quarter.. or what is a quarter, in my college a quarter means 15 weeks

So if i publish a game and it makes 2000$ in the first 15 weeks (or whatever a quarter is) i don't have to pay the royalties... But what about the second quarter.. if the product makes another 2000$ it sums 4000$ will i have to pay those 5% on royalies then ?

This isn't my native language.

A quarter is a calendar quarter or a three month calendar period. The four quarters of the calendar are January through March, April through June, July through September, and October through December.

The $3000 royalty exception is on a per quarter basis. Therefore, if your game makes $2500 in the first quarter, no royalties are owed, and if it makes $2500 in the second quarter, still no royalties are owed. If it makes $3500 in the third quarter, royalties are owed on $500.
