Nerdi gets 30% commission, and the educator gets 70%.
Are there any other fees associated with selling lessons on Nerdi?
· Nerdi pays the educators through PayPal. PayPal charge 30 cents per payment plus a transaction fee (this varies depending on your country... the range is between 2% and 3.4% however it is normally around 2.4%). This is subject to change as PayPal sets their prices independantly of Nerdi.
· When the iPhone & iPad applications are released the revenue from in app purchases will be 30% less as Apple takes 30% of the total. Even though this means the educators revenue will be lower per lesson sold we believe it is great to be able to sell through in app purchasing and educators will benefit from being able to sell their lessons in the app.
When do I get paid?
Nerdi pays educators at the end of the month as long as the account is owed at least $10. We set the $10 minimum to avoid excessive transaction costs to educators.
