How much commission does Fillim take when a film sells?
Fillim gets 30% commission, and the film-maker gets 70%. 
 
Are there any other fees associated with selling films on Fillim?
  • Fillim pays the film-makers through PayPal. PayPal charge 30 cents per payment plus a transaction fee (this varies depending on your country... the range is between 2% and 3.4% however it is normally around 2.4%). This is subject to change as PayPal sets their prices independently of Fillim. 
  • When the iPhone & iPad applications are released the revenue from in app purchases will be 30% less as Apple takes 30% of the total. Even though this means the film-makers revenue will be lower per film sold we believe it is great to be able to sell through in app purchasing and film-makers will benefit from being able to sell their films in the app.
 
When do I get paid?
Fillim pays film-makers at the end of the month as long as the account is owed at least $10USD. We set the $10 minimum to avoid excessive transaction costs to film-makers.
 
What should I charge for my films?

You can charge as much as you like. We recommend making each film $2 - $3. Of course you can also charge more than $3 if you want to... It's up to you.

Can I create a box set?
You can charge for films individually or you can group them together in a box set so a film buff can buy a number of films all at once. We recommend giving a discount if film buffs buy them as a box set. Again... it's up to you.
 
Can I edit films after I have posted them?
Definitely… If you update a film you can easily re-upload the content at any time.
 
Can I edit box sets after I have posted them?
Definitely... You can easily re-order or even add or delete films from a box set if you need to.
