Thank you! You’re too sweet.
Actually, you did remind me of something.
As far as my above idea – to make it more plausible and to have it make more sense and be feasible, I am thinking that if/when a buyer does make a hold for a month (this won’t happen as often as the others can so it won’t really have to be worried about too much, but I can guarantee it will happen with some of the names we have as options) that the creatives’ share of the payout of the 50/50 be given to the level of expected commission. For instance – in the aforementioned above I gave the example of:
This would mean that if the creative stands to receive $200 commission (used only as example) on that particular name and the 50/50 split would be $299.75 for each SH and creative that SH and Creative get the commission level of the hold amount (in this case, each would get $200 – the remaining money just being accrued by SH to keep or disperse to creative depending on scenario) UNTIL either abandonment, cancel, or purchase of the hold occurs. If purchased – the creative has already been paid IN THIS SCENARIO because of the commission being LOWER than the hold and SH would receive the remaining $199.50 ($99.75 x 2) of the hold a well as have their $199.50 share of the hold AND the remaining $599.50 of the purchase price for a TOTAL of the purchase price minus creatives’ commission… If abandoned/canceled – the creative will receive the extra $99.75 of their share of the hold and SH will receive the extra $99.75 of their share.
in the case of a month hold (Or any of the other holds actually), when the commission is HIGHER than the hold amount (which it more than often will be):
Then the hold will simply be split 50/50 between creative and SH until when/if purchase of the domain is made. If/when purchase does occur – the creative will receive the rest of the amount to pay off the remaining part of their expected commission.
