So if your earnings are not above $50 per month with Bango, what happens to the money?
Also, If DRI and Bango make independant payments to your paypal account, I assume that paypal will charge for each transaction, i.e 1.9- 2.9% +0.30.
So at the end of the day, selling a $1.00 app, and selling 100 per month:
BB et al gets $30.00
Developer gets $70-2.03-0.30 = 67.67, but
if less than $50 of that comes from Bango, you get nothing until such time as the amount is >$50?
Sounds like Bango has a good business model where they hang onto the last $49.99 of sales for apps that reach end of life.
What if Bango owes the developer $10? and no more of the app is ever sold. When will they pay out the $10?
no it jsut gets rolled over until you can hit $50 or $100 min

Bango... Heh, Bango...
After receiving my last invoice from Bango I'm a little bit suprised. Why? Here are the numbers:
1. There were 560 purchases in October.
2. 61 purchases were handled by DR and 499 purchases were handled by Bango. And here comes the best of all:
3. Bango - the total gross sales: 331,37 USD. What? Why?
4. Bango - the total net earnings: 201,21 USD. Wait, wait, wait... WTF?
499 purchases and the net earnings are about 201,21 USD? It's around 0,40 USD per a single purchase... I was expecting the net earnings from Bango at 62% level (around 310 USD). Please do not get me wrong - I'm aware of all these different TIER prices and EU VAT taxes (I'm living in the EU).
And it seems that this last invoice from Bango helped me to take a decision regarding "the migration" to the App Store, Google Play and WP Store. So far the App World was my "favourite" and primary mobile store for selling the apps, but the example above just made me angry.
