Last Month's Cleared Profits ... $196.00
The Riding Obsession’s total monthly profits come from affiliate commissions (VigLink), digital downloads (such as GPX maps) and inline advertisements (AdSense). We voluntarily distribute 2/3 of all cleared revenue minus any processing fees to any author who’s content we’ve agreed to publish. The amounts payable are calculated based on a given author’s month-end commission report, digital sales and authorship percentage of our total inline advertising revenue.
In algebraic terms, our monthly payout formula is as follows …
A = Cleared affiliate commission profits on posts you’ve written
B = All digital downloads sold through posts you’ve written
C = However many posts you’ve written
D = However many posts are currently published on our server
E = Our most recent inline advertising profits
F = .66 (66% or 2/3 respectively)
G = Whatever it costs us to pay/transfer money to you
Your Payout = ( ( A + B + ( ( C / D ) × E ) ) × F ) – G
So, if you earn $50 in affiliate commissions, $10 in digital sales and have written 3 of the 100 total posts on our servers, with $100 of inline advertising profits for the entire site, your payment for the month in question would be $40.07 ($41.58 – $1.55 by way of PayPal).
Affiliate commissions take around 60 days to clear and each has it’s own unique return. Digital downloads sell for a selection-specific price (maps at 1¢ per mile) that’s included in the very next disbursement. Inline advertising profits are divided among authors based on the percentage of posts published in their name in relation to the site’s total post count.
