VI.2 Benefits repartition
As a creator and a seller, you are entitled to specific distribution scale after a transaction.
Kypsel only takes 20% of the benefits of a transaction happening on the platform, as our fees. The rest of the benefits will be divided between the creator and the seller.
When the creator is the same entity as the seller, the creator will obtain 80% of the benefits of a transaction.
When a seller is a separate entity from the creator, the creator will still obtain 40% of the transaction, whereas the seller will obtain 40% of the transaction.
You thereby agree to this benefits repartition, and may not lay claim to a bigger percentage of the transaction.
VI.2 Fees and taxes
The fees charged for using Kypsel are listed and depend partly on taxation of your residence location. Our Kypsel fees and benefits repartition may change from time to time, depending on country fiscal laws, and other. We will post changes on the website and here, in the policy and terms, prior to changing them. We recommend punctually checking this page for information on fees and taxes.
VI.3 Payment method
You must have a payment method on file when selling or buying through Kypsel. If your payment method fails, you will be unable to purchase content, or obtain the sum owed to you when claiming your balance.
If, for some reason, your account is past due or a transaction was made to later appear as unpaid, we may collect amounts owed by charging any of the payment methods you have used in the past with us.
Kypsel can have an obligation, in any jurisdiction where it operates, to collect taxes from transactions made on Kypsel services. We may collect said taxes from you via your payment method or via any means available to us.
VI.4 Credit Card
Kypsel does not keep your credit card information at any time, but we strongly suggest reading Stripe's and PayPal's terms and conditions as those two mentionned services may keep your credit card information if you allow them. This is set up in order to facilitate your future transactions.
SECTION VII: Identity, age, email
When buying or selling on Kypsel, you MUST use your real name and identification – and it MUST match your payment method name (unless you have obtain proper authorization from the payment method holder to use his/her payment method.)
You are not obliged to create your account with your real name, or use an email with your real name for account creation.
You are also eligible to be a creator with a creator “artist name” rather than your real name.
However, at checkout, you will always be prompted for your real name for identification measures, and proper transaction purposes.
Because of the contractual nature of a transaction, we require all users – creators, or sellers – to be at least 18+ years old.
This rule is to protect both our adult and underage enthusiasts.
If you are not 18, please ask for a custodian, guardian, parent or over 18+ friend to use Kypsel in your stead.
It is your responsibility as an active user of Kypsel to have a correct, working email address on file.
SECTION VIII: Money back
You are only entitled to your money back if the content you have purchased is fraudulent (e.g. it is plagiarized content or other.) If Kypsel removes a piece, or work, or content from the platform because of such fraudulent activity, it will take contact with users who have purchased said content before it was reported and taken down.
SECTION IX: Withdrawal of royalties and benefits
Creators and resellers are entitled to claim back the money available in their balance, generated throughout sales and resales, any time they so desire by clicking on the appropriate button on the dashboard.
We strongly and highly recommend that the withdrawal be made using your Paypal account as it is cost and time efficient with almost no transaction fees (in some cases, none whatsoever). Kypsel will work on adding other recommended withdrawal platforms in the future for customer satisfaction.
We strongly discourage and do not recommend withdrawing claimed money through traditional bank transfers (Iban, swift....) as the processing time is longer and bank fees are much more consequent depending on the bank and geographical location. For security reason we will require an upload of a valid ID before validating any claim through traditional bank transfers. Extra fees incurred by the user, are beyond our control and responsibility as it depends on the bank, location, and account currency of the user.
SECTION X: Tax
Any user, creator or reseller is responsible to declare his revenues generated through Kypsel Limited to the appropriate authorities of his country of residence when necessary. At the request of the user, Kypsel can provide an end of year statement, listing all the revenues of the user on our platform. We strictly decline any responsibility if a user does not abide by the fiscal rules and regulation of his country of residence.
SECTION XI: Creator Rules
