An Explanation of metaLIFE's Fee Structure

Since this issue confuses a lot of people, I'll take the time to explain it for everyone.

Primary Affiliate: This is ignored when you are selling your own items from a vendor. However, when you are selling someone else's items through your vendor, this is the percentage of the profits that you keep.

Secondary Affiliate: If you are selling someone else's items from a branded metaVENDOR, then this percentage goes to the brand owner. If you are selling someone else's items from a metaVENDOR that is not branded, then this percentage is kept by you. If an item of yours is sold from the web site or from the metaHUD, then it goes to the person who referred you.


Just as some examples, I set Primary to 20%, and Secondary is left at the default value: 5%.

  • If someone sells one of my L$500 phones through a branded metaVENDOR, I keep a total of 70%, or L$350. 10% goes to metaLIFE, 20% goes to the seller, 5% is kept by me, and then the remainder is kept by me.
  • If someone sells one of my phones through a metaVENDOR set to sell "All Content", I keep a total of 65%, or L$325. 10% goes to metaLIFE, 20% goes to the seller, 5% goes to the owner again, and then the rest goes to me.
  • If someone buys one of my phones though the website or the metaHUD, 10% goes to metaLIFE, 5% goes to the person who referred the buyer, and the rest is kept by me.
  • If I'm selling my phones through my own metaVENDORs... I keep 100%

UPDATE (11/26/2009):
The Fee Structure has been changed today! Now, there are NO commission fees on sales from the website or the metaHUD. The only fee associated with them is the 5% referral fee. If you have no referrer, then it's no fees, period!
