4. CG Shortcuts Services

Upon creation of an Account, CG Shortcuts will provide you access to the CG Shortcuts Vendor service and/or, if applicable, the CG Shortcuts Sub-merchant service (please see below).

4.1 CG Shortcuts Vendor. The CG Shortcuts Vendor service allows you to upload and sell Digital Goods to a third party purchaser (a “Buyer”).

5. Fees, Terms of Payment, Taxes, and Conversion

5.1 Fees. CG Shortcuts does not assess or collect “listing” or “insertion” fees, but will assess and collect a per transaction fee (the “CG Shortcuts Fee”) equivalent to: 5% multiplied by the sum of the Retail Price.

The details of the fees with respect to Digital Goods and Physical Products are as follows:

5.1.1 Digital Goods. With respect to your Digital Goods, you may upload a digital file (including, but not limited to, .c4d, .hip, .zip, .jpeg files) to the Platform and Promote the Digital Good at a retail price determined by you, in your sole and absolute discretion (the “Retail Price”). Upon receiving a Buyer’s offer to purchase the Digital Goods, CG Shortcuts will immediately undertake technological efforts to digitally duplicate the Digital Good (with the result, the “Digital Duplicate”) and purchase such Digital Duplicate from you at a price equivalent to the Retail Price minus the CG Shortcuts (the resulting amount, the “Wholesale Price”). The Wholesale Price will be paid to you and accumulate as part of your balance (the “Balance”). Upon purchase of the Digital Duplicate from you, CG Shortcuts takes legal custody of the Digital Duplicate and agrees to sell the Digital Duplicate to the Buyer at the Retail Price.

5.2 Consideration. CG Shortcuts will provide vendor with monthly sales reports (via the Instructor Dashboard and email) in order for vendor to issue correlating invoices. Invoices will be issued 1 month after the month of sales, in case of refunds requested for Digital Goods. If applicable the refund amount will be deducted from the monthly share payable.

5.2.1 Terms of payment. All invoices issued under this Agreement will be paid via PayPal in Pound Sterling (GBP), within 30 days from receiving the invoice. 

5.3 Taxes. The purpose of this section is to highlight some of the more important taxation issues that you will need to consider if you are using our platform. You agree to be solely responsible and liable for the proper administration, imposition, collection, reporting, and remitting of all applicable taxes. We emphasise that this information is not intended and should not be used as legal advice. If you are unsure as to your tax responsibilities then you should seek advice from experts on this subject.

5.3.1 Direct Taxation. It is your personal responsibility to disclose your earnings to your relevant tax authority and you must ensure that you are paying the correct amount of tax. This is particularly relevant for users who are operating as a business.

5.4 Conversion. CG Shortcuts will calculate and render a converted exchange rate in British Pound Sterling (GBP), regardless of whether you listed the Retail Price of your Digital Good or Physical Product in a currency other than GBP. All transactions, regardless of Digital Good, Physical Product, or listed currency will settle in GBP, and, accordingly, your Balance will be denominated and redeemable only in GBP. CG Shortcuts cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy of the exchange rates displayed due to the fluctuating nature of market rates. Accordingly, CG Shortcuts recommends that you confirm current rates before engaging in any transactions on the Platform.
