Selecting a Base Price
As an Instructor, You may select a Base Price for Your Course based on the pricing table below:
|Currency||   Minimum Base Price||   Maximum Base Price||   Minimum Sales Price After Discount||   Increments|
You can change the base price of your course by going to the “Price Edit” screen in Your Instructor Account. Thereafter, Students will see the price selected, unless otherwise adjusted pursuant to the terms of this Pricing and Promotions Policy. This price table will be updated periodically according to market conditions.
Except when a Course is made available through Tufuzu’s Marketing Programs (which you voluntarily opt-in), an Instructor will be solely responsible for determining the Base Price to be charged for such Course, in accordance with the Instructor Terms.
Revenue Share and Taxes
As set forth in Section 9 of the Instructor Terms, If You do not opt into the Tufuzu Marketing Programs (see below), We will pay You Seventy percent (70%) of the Net Amount received for Your Course less any applicable deductions such as Student refunds (“Standard Revenue Share”). Should You decide to opt in to any of Our Marketing Programs, the relevant revenue share may be different, as defined for each program.
Tufuzu makes all payments to Instructors in USD regardless of the currency in which the Student transacts.
When the country from which the Student purchases the Course requires Tufuzu to remit Value Added Tax (VAT) or GST (Goods & Services Tax), We will deduct the tax amount from the Course Sale Price when calculating the Net Amount. The Net Amount will be split between Tufuzu and Instructors under the applicable revenue share model.
Countries requiring VAT / GST currently include all European Union (EU) countries, the U.K., South Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, but Tufuzu reserves the right to add additional countries to this list as necessary.
When applicable, Tufuzu charges and pays European Union taxes for website purchases.
Your revenue report will display the local Sales Price (in USD). You can view it when logged in account. Revenue report for video courses is accessible through the "Transactions" tab while the revenue report for other products (live tutorials and live courses) is available though the "Credits" tab
Tufuzu’s Marketing Programs for Paid Courses
Tufuzu gives Instructors an opportunity to opt into the following currently available marketing programs (“Marketing Programs”) via Your Instructor Account. For your course to be eligible for promotion using our marketing programs, tick (☑) the ‘Admin Discount’ check box in on the course details page. The current marketing program is explained below:
Tufuzu Marketing Boost Program: A Multi-Channel Marketing Program to Drive Sales of Your Course
a) Tufuzu uses a network of partner sites ("Affiliates") and established relationships with third-party deal sites ("Deal Partners," and with Affiliates, "External Partners"). We also use advanced digital marketing tactics (such as paid advertising). The Tufuzu Marketing Boost program is the Tufuzu Marketing Program that promotes Courses through Affiliates and Third Party Platforms Deal Partners such as Facebook. There is no upfront cost to this program.
b) When Tufuzu, at its option, purchases and places advertisements for Your Course on Third Party Platforms, and tracks the resulting sales through appropriate means (including, but not limited to, tracking pixels, cookies and the like) ("Paid Advertising"), there will be fees associated with such Paid Advertising activities.
c) Revenue Share: By participating in the Tufuzu Marketing Boost program, You agree that Tufuzu: (i) may employ External Partners and undertake Paid Advertising to promote Your Courses; (ii) not all programs are available in all geographic territories; and (iii) may deduct External Partner fees or Paid Advertising fees before calculating the Net Amount. You acknowledge that in connection with the Tufuzu Marketing Boost program, Your revenue share may vary, but will be not less than 50% of Net Amount in most cases.
Instructor Created Coupons
As an Instructor, You may be able to increase Your sales by promoting Your Course(s) by using a coupon code (“Coupon Code”) that You have created on Tufuzu. You will receive eighty percent (80%) of the Net Amount (as defined in the Instructor Terms) from those Student who input Your Coupon Code at the time they enroll in Your Course.
By using Coupon Codes, You may offer Your Course(s) at any percentage discount, provided Your Course Sale Price does not fall below $10 USD. Alternatively, You may also offer Your Course(s) for free, i.e. at a full 100% off of the Base Price. Note that the actual discount may be slightly higher due to rounding and currency conversion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You may issue Coupon Codes that allow Users to take Your Course for free.
When the country of the Student requires Us to charge tax, Course prices set by Instructors are inclusive of tax in the transaction. When an Instructor sees this transaction in the revenue report, the revenue share is calculated from the price the Student paid minus tax.
