The revision of the commission for the subscription plans (excluding the 10 DL / 30 days plan )

The overview of the change is as below.

Before this revision, the commission of the subscription plans (excluding the 10 DL / 30 days plan ) was decided based just on the 6 contributor’s ranks. After the change, in addition to the 6 ranks, the commission will be decided based on the status of the contributors such as Non-Exclusive, Exclusive-Content, Exclusive-contributor, Portrait Exclusive as well.

Furthermore, this revision is applied only to the subscription plans (excluding the 10 DL / 30 days plan ) , and there will be no change to the commissions for our single purchase service and the 10 DL / 30 days subscription plan.

Please refer to the commission rate after November 1st, 2018.

Revision of the amount of the credits along with the change of the prices of items(only photos and illustrations) bought in JYP on our single purchase service.

Price after the change

Sizes Prices
S ¥600
M ¥1,800
L ¥3,300
XL ¥5,000
V(Vector) ¥3,500

※ While we revised the prices of S, M, and L, there is no change applied to the prices of XL and vector items.

In the case that an item gets bought after the revision, you will be given the credits calculated along with the new price multiplied by your commission rate.

【The formula】
New prices × commission rate = the total amount of credits bestowed

As for the commission rate, please refer to the article below

Besides, we usually check and confirm payments by users and move on to the step of bestowing credits to each contributor after the checks. Due to this step, the timing when you actually receive the credits could be late for a while, and this may cause the application of the credits based on the old prices. This case occurs just because those items got bought before the revision of the prices, and we cannot bestow credits based on the new prices to those purchases

[Notice]
We have applied the revision of the prices only to the items bought via Yen, taking account of the various conditions of the countries and currencies on which we run our services.

Therefore, before the revision, your credits were based just on the sizes (excluding the exclusive contents), but after this revision, they will fluctuate, affected by the purchaser’s country of residence and currency.

We sincerely appreciate your kind understanding.
