9.3 Revenue Sharing.
Effective February 1, 2022, unless otherwise indicated in this Agreement, in any Wix Terms, or agreed between Parties in writing:
i. The Net App Revenues (as defined below) will be shared between Partner and Wix such that Partner will be entitled to eighty percent (80%) of the Net App Revenues and Wix will be entitled to twenty percent (20%) of the Net App Revenues (the “Revenue Share”).
In relation to any Partner Billed App, Wix shall be entitled to receive twenty percent (20%) of:
Any Net App Revenues collected by Partner, and
Any other income generated by Partner from the related App, including but not limited to income from advertising.
ii. Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the first twelve (12) months of the launch of the App at the App Market, the Net App Revenues and in relation to any Partner Billed App, also any other income generated by Partner from the related App, including but not limited to income from advertising, will be shared between Partner and Wix such that Partner will be entitled to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net App Revenues and Wix will be entitled to zero percent (0%) of the Net App Revenues.
The term “Net App Revenues” shall mean the aggregate amounts actually paid by Users to Wix or to Partner (as applicable) in consideration for the use, installation or upgrade of an App offered on the App Market.
For the avoidance of doubt, in relation to a Partner Billed App, the Net App Revenues shall include any revenues collected by Partner from any third party (such as revenues generated from ads included in an App). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Wix, at its sole discretion, may bundle several Apps together (each such bundle, a “Bundle Package”) and offer such Bundle Packages to Wix Users. In such event, Partner will be entitled, in consideration for the inclusion of its App in such Bundle Package, to a compensation as mutually agreed upon by the Parties in good faith, for as long as such App is offered as part of such Bundle Package.
We will share the “Net App Revenues” between us- you will receive 80% and we will receive the remaining 20%. “Net App Revenues” are the aggregate amounts actually paid by Wix users to either you or us for the use of your App through the Wix App Market, as detailed in this agreement. If your App is a Partner Billed App the Net App Revenues also include any related revenue you collected from third parties (like ads included in your App). During the first 12 months you will retain 100% of the Net App Revenues.
We may offer your App to Wix users bundled together with other Apps.
9.4 Payment of Revenue Share.
The Revenue Share will be payable to the other Party within thirty (30) days following the end of each month, by the Party that collected the relevant Net App Revenues.
Wix will not pay to a Partner hereunder an amount lower than two hundred US Dollars (USD 200; the “Minimal Payment Amount”). Accordingly, in the event Partner’s balance at the end of a month is lower than the Minimal Payment Amount, such balance shall be carried over and added to the next month’s Revenue Share amount until the total amount payable to such Partner reaches the Minimal Payment Amount.
Generally, the party receiving the revenue from Wix Users will pay the other party its applicable share of the revenue on a monthly basis.
Additionally, we will only pay you amounts of USD 200 or higher. So if your monthly due share is lower, we will carry that balance over until the total amount payable to you reaches USD 200.
9.5 Form of Payment.
All Revenue Share payments shall be due and payable in U.S. Dollars only. Payment shall be made through wire transfer or any other method chosen by Wix, at its sole discretion. All payments hereunder shall be made against a lawful tax invoice to be issued by the Party receiving the respective payment.
Revenue share payments will be made in USD following the issuance of a lawful tax invoice. We will choose the method of payment.
9.6 Taxes; Exchange Rate.
Partner shall be responsible for the payment of any and all taxes assessments, fees and other governmental charges of any kind (collectively “Taxes”) applicable to the conduct of Partner’s business. The payments made by Wix to Partner shall be subject to any applicable withholding tax obligations (if any). If an App price is presented in any currency other than U.S. Dollars, Wix will have the sole discretion to determine the exchange rate applicable to the App and to set off any exchange rate costs occurred to Wix as result of payment in any non U.S. Dollar currency.
You are responsible to pay all taxes and any other governmental charges applicable to your business. Our payments to you are subject to any applicable withholding tax obligations (if any).
If your App prices are in a currency other than USD, we will determine the applicable exchange rate.
9.7 Reporting, Records and Inspection.
Partner shall be obligated to provide Wix a monthly report, within no later than fifteen (15) days from the end of each calendar month. Each such reporting will include full and comprehensive information regarding purchases made by Users, billing and collection (if made by Partner), full details regarding income generated from any advertising through the App and any other information which Wix deems, on a reasonable basis, as relevant to the relationship with Wix under this Agreement.

We may also inspect your App's code in regards to such calculations. You must comply with the monthly billing limit set on your App by us or by our Users.
Each year you must provide us with a calculation of the amounts you paid us during the calendar year.
These documents must be approved by a certified accountant. You must also keep accurate books of accounts and records covering all transactions with Wix users.
