Fees and Charges

General Payments Notes

- Super Admin
: The Super Admin (or ‘Portal Admin’ of a Coursebox LMS or Opentute portal) is the Account holder responsible for all license payments related to the portal account, aside from individual transactions for users.
- Channel/Group Creators: there may be more than one administrator of a Channel but there must be a single Channel Account Admin (‘Guru’), the only admin who can collect membership fees to their account for the given Channel. Stripe account must be linked to the Channel Guru account to accept payments and channel membership fee be set up.
- Learning/Course Creators: to sell Learning, an Expert must first link a Stripe account in ‘Payments’ and set a price.
- Channel/Group membership: Channels may be published as free ($0), for either public or private (request only) access. Channel Creators may also charge a monthly membership fee using a valid Stripe account. A 30 day free trial applies to anyone paying membership on a channel and membership may be cancelled at any time. Membership fees are charges to the member’s credit card monthly after the 30 day trial has completed.
- Platform Commission: Coursebox or Opentute charges a 2% commission for any transaction. Stripe additionally charges a commission per transaction (estimated at <2.9% plus 30 cents – refer to Stripe terms and conditions). In addition, the Super Admin of any portal may charge a commission for use on their portal, which may vary from 0% to 50% of the total charge.

Where taxes are collected for clients selling services is different countries, applicable taxes may apply to purchases, as managed by the Super Admin of the given LMS installation.

Platform charges are in USD, but we may display conversions in other currencies, including AUD. In some cases, clients will be charged in AUD. Where possible, we will endeavour to set a fix rate in such occurrences, but where USD is the default currency, conversion to AUD will occur at the current conversion rate, as managed by Stripe, Paypal or other gateway provider.Users are responsible for collecting and including any other taxes applicable in the given region.For official tax invoices, users must contact the payee.All fees are deducted from each transaction upon release.Super Administrators may adjust fees payable for E-commerce transactions.
