6 Fees:

YesCourse facilitates collection of Fees from Students on behalf of Academy Owners.

Fees for any Course are solely determined by the Academy Owner for that Course and are considered to be inclusive of all Taxes. Academy Owners are responsible for payment of any taxes as per their jurisdiction.

Your Bank, Payment Processor or other agency may charge you additional transaction costs including but not limited to foreign exchange conversion fees, credit card fees and other charges. You agree that these charges are in addition to any Fees charged by Academy owners on YesCourse and that you are responsible for them.

The following deductions are made from Fees paid by Students before they become payable to Academy Owners:

 a) YesCourse Hosting Charges: The charges agreed to be paid by Academy Owners to YesCourse for providing this service. Where no agreement to the contrary exists, these charges will be 19% of the total Fees collected from Students. YesCourse may apply a minimum fee of $10USD per course for students added manually into courses.

 b) Affiliate Commission: Academy Owners may opt to set aside a percentage of their choosing of the total Fee of each Course to be paid to an Affiliate who markets a Course on your behalf. YesCourse will additionally deduct this percentage only from those sales that happen via Affiliates before calculating the amount payable to Academy Owners.

c) Any other charges mutually agreed between YesCourse and Academy Owners.

As an Academy Owner you can choose to pay a fixed monthly fee instead of a share of the revenue.

Any students joining a course while on the monthly fee plan will only have access to those courses while the monthly plan is active.

You can choose to switch back to the revenue share at any time and retain students from another plan by paying the difference between the revenue share and the actual monthly charges paid during that duration or a minimum charge of $10USD per student whichever is larger.

When on a revenue share plan, Academy Owners agree to pay YesCourse the corresponding Hosting Charges (19% with a minimum of $10) for every student added even if the fees for said student were collected independently of the platform. You will not attempt to circumvent this revenue share by any means (eg. by means of marking a course as free but collecting payment from students externally). These hosting charges will allow the corresponding student access to your content for a maximum period of one year. Access to content where no hosting charges have been paid (eg. free Courses) is limited to a period of one month.

Unless otherwise specified, hosting charges, online courses, software downloads, and all digital purchases from YesCourse and all academies owned by YesCourse are not returnable after purchase.
For products that specifically provide a "No questions asked" refund policy, there is an upper limit of 30 days from purchase for making this request.

When making a request for refund for a digital product, you must immediately refrain from further accessing that product. Any access after the request has been communicated will effectively cancel that refund request and render it void.
