This reference guide covers important information, but remember that the payments are governed under the Creator Agreement.
Viewing Your Earnings
Your earnings are available to view any time through your dashboard for both Virtual Events and Watch Anytime. Just log in to Xerb and click on your “Dashboard,” then “Earnings.”
For both Virtual Events and Watch Anytime, you are paid within 30 days of the end of the month once your accumulated balance reaches $50 USD.
We have two official payment methods: PayPal, or if you are located in the United States, a paper check. Using either of these methods, we will not charge you a payment fee.
If these methods will not work for you, in some circumstances we may be able to use an alternate method. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. On request, we may also be able to pay you before you’ve reached the payment threshold, but a fee may apply. Note that while we try to accommodate special situations, we cannot guarantee that we can.
It is very important that you keep your payment information accurate and up to date. You can update it by logging in, clicking on the dropdown menu in the upper-right corner, and selecting “Edit Profile.”
We are subject to the laws of the United States, which may require us to withhold money for taxes or other reasons, and in some cases may prohibit us from paying you entirely due to sanctions or other financial restrictions. This is most often dependent on what country you are located in. If you have concerns about this, please email email@example.com and we’ll do our best to provide you information.
Depending on how much you earn (generally over $600 USD in one calendar year), you may also need to provide us with a form W-9 or W-8BEN. You can email this documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How You Earn
Channel Runners and Creators have a few ways to earn money through Xerb.
Channel Runners have the option to share any percentage of a Virtual Event’s earnings that they specify directly with Creators. Xerb automatically handles all of the accounting and payments, and allocates sales for individual tickets as well as a portion of ticket packages. Note that to use this option, the Creator must upload their content to their own account and add it to the Virtual Event.
Creators and Channel Runners will agree on the percentage of earnings that will be shared, if any, before the Virtual Event takes place. Xerb will automatically allocate earnings from both tickets and passes based on this percentage.
Channel Runners have the option to share earnings from monthly subscriptions directly with Creators. They set a percentage initially when the Watch Anytime service is set up, and Xerb notifies Creators if this percentage changes.
Creators will be shown what the “Creator Share” per subscriber is for a specific channel before submitting content. The Creator Share is shared amongst the Creators based on what proportion of the content on the channel is theirs. In other words, if 5% of the total length of the content on the channel is yours, you are entitled to 5% of the Creator Share each month. Creators may have the same content on multiple channels.
