Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

Also, Richard, you say your passing on PayPal fees. Why the 6x markup on this?

Here is the quote from PayPal themselves:

Fee for each payment sent to a recipient:

2.0% of the payment up to $1.00 USD

So all your offering us is an option to change payout periods and nothing else? Did you not read the posts? You should be paying this out of your 30 percent take as previously agreed (you already pocket 15 bucks out of 50 - you can cover the 1 dollar fee without arbitrarily charging us another 6...).

Someone at Bango needs to take grade 10 math again. And someone at BlackBerry needs to be willing to take a risk and just stop payments through Bango until they get their act together.

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

Speaking of fees why we are charged with extra 1.9% for just currency conversion? One could assume that the 30% cut covers that as well. I don't think Digital River or BBCommerce charge for currency conversion.

 

And any comments about the payments delay (months!!!) for some Indonesia carriers?

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

For small developer like us the math goes this way.. suppose I have 100$ app sale for over row and the total cuttings will be 34$ that is I suppose to get around 66$ now, and now when bango charge me additional 6$ the figure ll come down to 60$ that is totally 40% cutting from actual sales... after that I don't know weather we have to pay local country taxes for revenue what ever I got from BlackBerry E commerce ..

Yes, revenue from BB App World is clubbed with your income and you need to pay income tax if your income from BB + other sources (job, business etc..) is more than the minimum taxable limit.

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

Depending on your country tax laws. In the US, you pay tax on the profit of the company, not the revenue taken in.

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

It is definitely a questionable thing to have Bango charging $6 when PayPal is charging $1. Taking $6 is way more than passing on the $1 fee. How ethical is it for Bango saying they are passing on the fee and charging 6x the fee amount?

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

Bango has posted some details on this fee on their blog here:  http://bangoserviceblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/bangos-out-payment-fee-structure/

 

The important line I'd like to point out is:

 

"At this time the average transfer fee is $6."

 

Paypal's transfer fee does vary a lot between some countries.

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

Still annoyed that the fees charged to Bango have become our problem...

Re: Bango rips-off developers by charging 6$ per transaction

They should just charge actual per developer not to exceed $6.
