6. CHARGES, PAYMENT OF REVENUE SHARE AND RELATED TERMS
6.1 Charges: Subject to the Pricing Policy and these Terms, You have the discretion to set the commercial pricing tiers for Sales of Your Apps (the "Charges"). Provided that in the event there is a change in the commercial pricing tiers to reflect an increase in the pricing of the Apps (“New Pricing”), You agree that this New Pricing shall be applicable only to Your new customers and not to Your existing customers who use Your App. For the purposes of these Terms, "Sale" includes any initial or renewal sale, subscription or license of an App through the App Marketplace.
6.2 Revenue Share: For each Sale, We will pay You an amount ("Revenue Share") equal to eighty percent (80%) of the amount received by Freshworks from the Sale. Such amounts exclude taxes and any separately stated fees or charges. A Revenue Share is due only for Sales for which We have received final payment from or on behalf of an end user. If an App is sold to an end user using a credit card, final payment will be deemed to have occurred when the applicable credit card company or bank has fully settled the payment for the applicable purchase. For purposes of clarity, in the event We refund the applicable Sale amount (or a portion thereof) to an end user You agree and acknowledge that You will not receive and will have no right to receive a Revenue Share on that portion of the Sale amount that was refunded.
6.3 Payment by Us: Subject to these Terms, approximately thirty (30) days after the end of the calendar month in which the applicable Sale is made, We will make available to You a report detailing Sales of Apps and corresponding Revenue Share along with payment of the Revenue Share due in connection with such report. All payments will be made in US dollars ("$"). You agree to provide Us with information on a valid bank account in Your name, and We will make payments to that account via Electronic Funds Transfer ("EFT"). We are entitled to accrue and withhold payments, without interest, until the total amount due to You (net of any tax withholding, as further described below) is at least $300.00. If We pay You a Revenue Share on a Sale and later issue a refund or credit to the end user for such Sale (or receives a chargeback related to the Sale), We may adjust the amount of the Revenue Share that We previously paid You against future Revenue Share or other amounts that would otherwise be payable to You under these Terms, or require You to remit that amount to Us. We may also withhold and offset sums You owe to Us against amounts that are payable to You. You agree that any fees charged by Your bank in connection with wire transfers pursuant to this Section 6.3 are solely Your responsibility. When these Terms terminate, We may withhold all Revenue Share due for a period of sixty (60) days from the date they would otherwise be payable, in order to ensure Our ability to offset any end user refunds or make any other offsets to which We are entitled.
6.4 Use of Certain Information: We shall use Your banking and payment information solely for purposes related to this Section 6. We shall not disclose Your sales and related financial data to third parties. The foregoing sentence notwithstanding, We may use or disclose aggregated sales and other financial data related to the App Marketplace, which may include Your sales and related financial data but does not identify You or Your data specifically.
6.5 Taxes: Except as described in these Terms, We are responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes imposed on sales of Apps to end users in accordance with applicable laws. You are responsible for any income or other taxes due and payable resulting from Our payments to You. Accordingly, unless otherwise stated, the amounts due to You hereunder are exclusive of any taxes that may apply to such payments. We maintain the right to deduct or withhold any applicable taxes payable by You from amounts due from Us in accordance with applicable US taxation laws, and the amounts due, as reduced by such deductions or withholdings, will constitute full payment to You.
