Commissions and Payment to Sellers/Vendors
AlleyCove pays you, the Seller/Vendor, after a small waiting period (typically 5 days) via the Stripe account created during the on-boarding process. Our commission is a percentage taken from the pre-tax sale amount (cost of item + any shipping). Though variable commissions will likely be introduced at some point, as of 2023, our base commission is 9%.
For Sales to Customers in Kansas and Texas: we must deduct Sales Tax in addition to commission and Stripe fees.
Stripe deducts a fee of 2.9% + $0.30 from the total charged amount. After that, sales tax, and our commission are deducted. The rest is paid to your bank account automatically.
You sell an item for 10 dollars (w/ free shipping) to a customer in Texas. After sales tax, the total amount charged is 10.79 (Sales Tax of 7.94%).
Stripe deducts their fee of $.61 (2.9% + $.30), leaving $10.18.
After that, the amount for Sales Tax ($.79) plus our 9% Commission ($.90) are deducted (for a total of $1.69). Your remaining payout is $8.49.
