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"

Need help understanding royalties and commercial licenses.

Hi, I need help to understand royalties and commercial licenses.

The 5% royalties is taken after 3,000 dollars (or pounds as I am in the UK) but how do you know when I generate the income? Also, is the payment just once or more? I am very interest in the companies outcomes and would love to become an Indie developer. I may not even release my projects publically for sale but I would love to know about this questions first incase I make a game and cause trouble with royalties which I would hate to happen. Thank you any help. Hugely appreciated.

Okay this is understandable thanks. However, if the income was to suddenly drop below $3000 (or set price in the UK) will royalties still be expected or are they put on hold until risen above $3000 again?

There's no royalty or royalty reporting if the revenue drops to below $3K.

$3000 per quarter is calculated in dollars not in your local currency. You can do a currency conversion if you need to.

When you say is royalty payment "just once" - the answer is that royalty calculation is done on a quarterly basis. So in every quarter in which your Product receives revenue, you must do a new royalty calculation. You can find more info on that here.
