Billing and Payment Policy:
Your credit card is charged immediately when you first purchase a membership, and then monthly thereafter.
You may cancel or change your membership at any time for any reason.
Channillo does not offer refunds. If you are unhappy with your membership for any reason, please contact mail:support@channillo.
4. Subscribing to a Channillo Series
The number of different series you are allowed to be subscribed to at one time is determined by your membership level. You may unsubscribe from a series at any time for any reason. If you unsubscribe from a series, you must wait 90 days before you are allowed to resubscribe to that series.
Once you subscribe to a series, you will remain subscribed to that series until you unsubscribe, cancel or downgrade your Channillo membership, or if the series is removed from Channillo.
5. Creating a Channillo Series
All potential writers must apply for a series and have their series application approved before they are able to publish work. The series applications that we do and do not approve is completely our decision. Also, Channillo reserves the right to remove a writer and/or cancel and remove a series for any reason.
Writers are fully accountable and responsible for everything they publish.
All work published on Channillo must:
Any content published that is in violation of any of these rules may be removed from Channillo, and the series may be suspended or canceled.
Content Ownership & Use:
Writers retain ownership of any work published on Channillo. A writer may cancel a series and remove their work from Channillo at any time. Writers agree to let Channillo use portions, or all, of content released on Channillo as we find appropriate. Examples of use may include marketing materials, promo pages, site demonstrations, etc.
Writer Payment Distributions: Channillo will distribute 80% of total subscription revenue (after payment processing fees) to the writers. Channillo will be responsible for all of the operating costs of the site including development, hosting, maintenance, customer service, etc.
Writer payment distributions will be calculated each calendar month, using the previous calendar month's revenue and subscription data. The amount of money each individual writer earns is based on the number of Channillo members that subscribe (or stay subscribed) to their specific series each calendar month. This number includes members that were subscribed to a series at one point during the month, but unsubscribed before the month ended.
There is a minimum payment threshold of $50.00. If earnings for a series are less than $50, the amount earned gets added to the next month's earnings until the threshold is passed, in which case a payment will be made.
Writers are responsible for all payment processing fees charged by Paypal.
Submitting tax information:
Because Channillo, Inc. is a United States based company, we are required by the Internal Revenue Service to collect tax information from all writers who receive payments from Channillo. Writers are responsible for paying the appropriate taxes on their earnings, if applicable. Channillo collects personal information from all writers in order to submit the appropriate documentation/forms to the IRS as necessary.
If you choose to receive payments from Channillo you agree to:
Writers not interested in earning may elect to have the money donated directly to a charity of their choice. The charity must be able to accept payments from our chosen payment providers. Charity donations are also subject to the minimum payment threshold of $50.00
