# Pay per item

The payment per downloaded item calculation will be done considering the number of downloads, the item type weightings (item points), and the sum of subscription fees on that specific day.

• At the end of each day, we would calculate the total amount of subscription fees and calculate the “per diem” subscription amount. Then we would calculate the total number of item points considering the type of downloaded items.
• The total daily subscription amount would be divided by the number of item type points to calculate the “per point” price for that day. That number would be multiplied by 0.5 to calculate the 50% rate. The price per point might change on a daily basis, according to our calculations.

For example, let’s say there was only one subscriber, they generate revenue (excluding transactional taxes) of \$19 for the month and download items worth a total of 20 item points. The amount available for sharing with the authors of those items is 50% x \$19 = \$9.50.

Now imagine that one of the items they used is, for example, a presentation template of yours, worth 4 item points. Your items make up 4 points out of the total 20 points used, so you earn ( \$19/20 x 4 ) x 0.5 = \$1.90 from that one subscriber for the month.
