For all you module designer/publisher types out there. There is an option when uploading a product to setup a artist royalty rate. Has anyone ever used this? I would guess that drivethru takes there cut and you either take a % of your earning and give it to the artist on every purchase (automatically) or you set a specific agreed upon dollar amount.
As an artist would you do this?
Its very similar to "points" on a record, when your a record producer. Sometimes producers are paid a little up front and then "points" which means they get a percentage of sales. However (not to shoot myself in the foot) most record producers would rather take a lump sum up front and let the artist keep all royalty's unless its a definite hit (which doesn't happen that often). FRICK! that hurt... shot myself...
I pay artists a lump sum. Royalties are a pain in everyone's butt, especially at OSR income rates.ReplyDelete
