Tips and Where Your Money Goes
So you like what you've found here enough to click on the Tip Jar. First of all, thank you! Secondly, let's have a quick look at where your hard-earned money goes before you let go of it.
PayPal Transaction Fees
Ain't nothin' free in this world, and that's especially true when it comes to money changing hands. Each PayPal transaction gets this much taken off the top:
- 2.9 percent of total
- Plus $0.30 flat fee
- Additional fees for non-US currency
Based on this fee schedule, it's better for us if you tip $2 once than if you lay down $1 twice, even though you're paying the same amount either way.
Web Hosting Fees
Super Dimensional Fortress is about the coolest web host on the planet. Like WaxPhilosophic, they also rely on donations to keep things running. WaxPhilosophic is a MetaArpa member with a recurring quarterly donation of $9 ($36 annually.)
Donations to Other Organizations
All of the ebooks on this site were produced using the free office suite, LibreOffice. Since this software is such a key piece of our ability to bring you good stuff to read, it's only right that we show our financial support for the project.
Many times, the quarterly net profits from ebook sales will be donated to an LGBTQ+ or humanitarian not-for-profit, as part of our on going #smut4change campaign.
Tacos and Stuff
Whatever else is left in the account after all obilgations and charitable payouts are taken care of goes toward feeding the authors.
