For Creators

Membership and One-time payment

A “creator” is a user who offers membership to other users on ImpactMe. A “supporter” is a user that subscribes to a membership. To become a creator simply launch your page to start your membership. Memberships are for your most passionate fans. You’re inviting them to be a part of something exciting that gives them unique benefits they want, like additional access, merchandise, exclusivity, and engaging experiences. In exchange, supporters pay on a subscription basis or one-time basis. Please note that there are different fees associated with both subscription basis payments and one-time payments. Details are discussed in Fees section below.

Payments

As a creator you make your membership available on ImpactMe, and we provide membership to your supporters on a subscription basis or one-time basis. We also handle payment issues such as fraud, chargebacks and resolution of payments disputes.

We try to provide timely access to your funds, but you may occasionally experience delays in accessing your funds. We reserve the right to block or hold payments for violations of our policies or for compliance reasons, including collecting tax reporting information. When payments are delayed or blocked, we try to communicate the reason to you promptly. If you have questions about a payments block, please contact us at support@impactme.in. In order to protect creators, we reserve the right to block any supporters’ payments if we believe them to be fraudulent.

Please note that any payment once made is non-refundable and non-reimbursable. But we may make an exception in special cases. Please reach out to us at support@impactme.in if you feel you’ve been wrongly charged, the decision taken by us will be final and binding. Sometimes activities like refunds can put your account balance into the negative. If your balance becomes negative then we may recover those funds from future payments. As a creator you are liable to pay us the negative balance amount if we feel we may not be able to recover the funds in future.

Fees

There are no fees associated with using ImpactMe. We only charge a small percentage fee on each transaction that happens on our platform. The total amount paid by a supporter is divided between the creator, us, and the payment gateway.

In the case of monthly membership payment, a fixed 90% of the total amount will be credited to the creator. The transaction charges vary depending on your mode of payment, amount and other factors, but they can be anywhere from 0-5%, subject to change according to the payment gateway’s policies. The remaining amount after deduction of transaction charges will be our platform fees. This flexible fee structure ensures that creators always have a stable and predictable income, which is our topmost priority at ImpactMe.

In the case of one-time payment, a fixed 80% of the total amount will be credited to the creator. The remaining amount after deduction of transaction charges by the payment gateway, will be our platform fees. The platform fee on one-time payment is higher than the membership fees to incentivise the choice of monthly subscription, as it is more beneficial for the creator to make a regular and predictable income.

Tax

We do not handle most tax payments, but we collect tax identification information and report this to tax authorities as legally required. You are responsible for reporting any taxes.

Restrictions

We don’t allow creations, benefits and rewards that violate our policies. Following rewards are not allowed:

•    Illegal creations or benefits.

•    Creations or benefits that are abusive towards other people.

•    Creations or benefits that use others’ intellectual property, unless you have written permission to use it, or your use is protected by fair use.

•    Creations or benefits with real people engaging in sexual acts.

•    Benefits that involve raffles or prizes based on chance or lottery.

An account is tied to your creative output and cannot be sold or transferred for use by another creator.

For Supporters

To become a supporter simply create an account, add your preferred payment method and join a creator’s membership.

There are two ways to get access to your creator’s exclusive rewards. You can subscribe on a monthly basis to get access to all the content starting from your month of subscription till you end the subscription. Or you can pay for unlock each paid post whenever you want to. This is called one-time payment. The price of each membership tier and each post is decided by the creator.

Your membership will start as soon as you make the payment, all the posts of the running month will be unlocked. The membership amount will be deducted from your account automatically on the 3rd day of each month. You will get an invoice on a successful payment. You can view all your active membership subscriptions and billing history on your membership page (chk - link to membership page).

You can cancel your membership subscription at any time. We may grant refunds at our sole discretion.

In certain situations you may lose access to a creator’s paid posts and benefits. These include when you cancel your membership subscription, your payment method fails, the creator blocks you, or the creator deletes their account.

Creators’ memberships vary and we have limited control over the quality and specific offerings. We attempt to screen for fraudulent creator pages, but cannot guarantee the identity of creators or the validity of any claims they make. We appreciate your help reporting suspicious creator pages so we can keep ImpactMe safe. As such it is your responsibility to ensure that the creator’s original page on other social platforms provides a link to his ImpactMe page.

ImpactMes role

We proactively look at some pages and posts on ImpactMe to make sure creators follow our guidelines and do not abuse the platform or its community. We also investigate reports of potential violations. These investigations may take a while to resolve and may include looking at what is supported by funds received through ImpactMe.

In most situations we will work with creators to resolve any potential violations and allow the creator to continue using ImpactMe. In extreme cases, we reserve the right to remove any post or terminate any account that we feel indulges in abusive conduct.

Please let us know if you see potential violations of our terms by mailing us at report@impactme.in. (chk)
