Transaction Fees
When you make a sale through your Online Store, you will be charged a transaction fee of 3% from the value of the purchase. This fee does not include any government taxes and fees applicable to the sale for which you have responsibility as a seller.

Fee Avoidance
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your Althemy Online Store through another venue. The price stated in each listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not alter the item's price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Althemy transaction fees.
Digital VAT (Value-Added Tax) Fees
Under European Union law, when you sell a digital item that is downloaded automatically to a buyer living in the EU and where digital services are supplied on a business to consumer basis, the supplier is responsible for accounting for VAT on the supply.VAT (a value-added tax) must be collected based upon the rate that is charged in the country where the buyer is located.
