It’s as easy as 1-2-3%, Doe-Ray-Mee, A-B-C, baby you and me, girl~
What’chu talkin’ about Coop?
Well we thought we’d run an opening promotion for the Alpha release of the site. Might redo it for the Beta and/or Final versions, or even special anniversaries, but we’ll see how broke we are by then.
The basics are as basic as the banner makes out! For our first SIX months of operation, we’ll give you lower Fees (only the Coop Content ones, because we can’t change PayPal’s rates unless we process more payments). Plus, we’re not being totally honest with the catchy name, it’s actually 0-1-2% for the first SIX months, then 3% thereafter because it’s our standard flat fee anyway.
From June 15th to August 31st 2019 is all 0% Fees for Coop – THAT’S ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
From September 1st to October 31st 2019 is charged at just 1% Fees for Coop!
From November 1st to December 31st 2019 is charged at 2% Fees for Coop!
From January 1st 2020 is charged at the full 3% Fees for Coop – THE HORROR! THE HORROR!
So how does all that sound to you potential Creators to be? Is Coop Content looking like a reasonable place to start out or what? So, as with all of our promotions, what’s the catch?
What’s the gossip on this gimmick, then?
Well, hopefully as you’ll see, there’s nothing really to it at all.
We’re not going to only apply the reduces Fees to Active Creators, like how one has to qualify for the You’re My Number 1% or the Cooperative Profit Share. If you sign up to become a Creator between our launch date (15/06/2019) and the end of the year (31/12/2019), any payments that we process for donations, subscriptions, merchandise, or crowd funding projects between those dates will receive the reduced Fees applicable to that period of time (as described above).
The reason we’re doing this is because we want to build our user-base. As we’ve joked before, we have to bribe you to make friends. Therefore, we’re offering this promotion to get some Creators in as OG Coop Members (yes, they’ll get the badge too), as well as their fans to build up the Coop Community as a whole (y’all also get the badge, but Creators will get verification ones as well, sorry).
So yeah, sorry. We’re not entirely altruistic, but we hope you can forgive us. Everyone needs to start somewhere, and we thought this would be a good way to go.
If there’s anything else you’d like to see us do, within reason of course, that you think would entice more User and Creators over to Coop Content, then please feel free to make suggestions in the comments below. It is, after all, all of you that cause us to sink or swim. You’re either gonna love us or not have a use for us, so…
Thank you in advance for all you may do in our quest to build up this business as a nice little corner of the internet for us to enjoy together.
