As an agency, you’re charged a success fee based on your billings with each client. Commission fees are a percentage of what you charge to the client in the first 12-months of your collaboration (media excluded).
This includes all contracts you’ve ever had with that client. Success fees depend on your plan:
*Limited to the first 5 opportunities accepted
Example: On a €30.000 project with a new client, an agency's success fee would be 9% (with a Studio+ membership). Their earnings after fees would be 27.300€.
