  1. Payments

If You do not opt into any of FutureCFO’s optional Marketing Programs, We will pay You a set amount fee of the Net Amount received for Your Course less any applicable deductions such as Student refunds (“Standard Fee Payments”). If FutureCFO changes the Standard Fee Share, we will provide you thirty (30) days notice via email or prominent notice on the Services.

Payment of revenue collected through the platform will be released when a customer begins the first activity of program/course or package purchased. Revenue earned by the instructor is specifically defined as revenue that is available to pay out, after a customer has started an activity, and may not coincide with directly with the purchase date of the programming to allow substitutions or alterations in a timely basis.

So that Company can pay you in a timely manner, you must have a Bank account in good standing and keep FutureCFO apprised as to the correct email address associated with your Bank account. Payment will be made within forty-five (45) days of the end of the month in which the fee for a Course was received. You are responsible for paying taxes to the appropriate authority.

  1. Standard Fees Share

FutureCFO shall take 35% of the eligible course gross revenue and 65% for the Course Instructor, except where the two parties agreed otherwise. The Instructor understands that the Fee Share goes into maintaining the platform. This fee excludes promotional work or course development. The Instructor is responsible for developing, recording, and editing their courses. FutureCFO may help in the development process for an agreed-upon development fee. Such development fees shall be deducted from the Gross revenue.

  1. Refunds

As an Instructor, you acknowledge and agree that Students have the right to receive a refund, as set forth in section 10 of FutureCFO’s Terms of Use. Neither Instructors nor FutureCFO shall receive any payments, fees or commissions for any transactions for which a refund has been granted pursuant to section 10 thereof. In the event that a Student requests a refund for a Course after FutureCFO has sent an Instructor payment for that Course, FutureCFO reserves the right to either (1) deduct the amount of such refund from the next payment to be sent to that Instructor, or (2) require that Instructor to refund any amounts refunded to Students for Instructor’s Course to the extent no additional payments are due from FutureCFO to Instructor or such payments due to the Instructor are insufficient to cover the amounts refunded to Students.
