If you are subscribing as a new Member upon or following the date of such modification, the modified Subscription Fees shall apply to your Membership from the date of your subscription.

6. Compensation. If you become a Print Store Owner, this Section will apply to you.

6.1 DPChallenge.com reserves the right to request, and you must provide, taxpayer information as required by the IRS at any time. If DPChallenge.com requests taxpayer information for you, any compensation DPChallenge.com owes you may be withheld, with all amounts witheld being submitted to the IRS.

6.2 DPChallenge.com will compensate you as follows: DPChallenge.com will charge a base price for each Product that you offer with the DPChallenge.com Service ("Base Price"). You may sell Products at whatever price you choose ("Selling Price"). The Total Profit (“Total Profit”) is the dollar amount of the Selling Price minus the Base Price for each Product you sell in your Store that are not returned. DPChallenge.com will owe you 50% (fifty percent) (“Percentage”) of the Total Profit, collectively your Compensation (“Compensation”). DPChallenge.com reserves the right to change this Percentage at any time. The modified Percentage shall apply immediately to all Products sold after such change.

6.3 DPChallenge.com will calculate your Compensation on a quarterly schedule (“Compensation Schedule”): Quarter 1 ends on March 31st; Quarter 2 ends on June 30th; Quarter 3 ends on September 30th; and Quarter 4 ends on December 31st. If DPChallenge.com owes you less than $25.00 for your Compensation, your Compensation will carry over to the next Quarter. Because the first Quarter of operation of the Print Store service will consist of only two weeks, the first calculation of Compensation will take place on June 30th, 2003.

6.4 If DPChallenge.com owes you $25.00 or more for Product sales in a given Quarter plus any accrued but unpaid Compensation, DPChallenge.com will pay you the money owed for such period by company check within 30 days of the end of that Quarter.

6.5 DPChallenge.com will make available to you one or more sales reports for you to monitor your sales activity. DPChallenge.com does not warrant the accuracy of these reports and will not be liable for any errors or miscalculations on such reports. DPChallenge.com will calculate the actual amount owed to you.

6.6 If DPChallenge.com has not made a payment of money to you for any 180 day period because you have not earned a total of at least $25.00, and without any limitation of DPChallenge.com's other rights to terminate, DPChallenge.com may terminate your Store. DPChallenge.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you 30 days prior to such termination. If you sell a Product within such 30 days, DPChallenge.com will not terminate your Store in accordance with this Section, and a new 180 day period (for the purpose of this Section) will commence on the first day of the month following the month in which such Product is sold.

6.7 If you or DPChallenge.com terminate your account, and you have less than $25.00 in accrued but unpaid credits then outstanding, DPChallenge.com may charge you a termination fee equal to the amount of such credits to cover its administrative costs.
