Playmore Games will pay the Client on a monthly basis by bank transfer as long as the total amount to be paid is over 100.00 EUR.

Playmore Games will not hold any funds longer than a year, even if they are less than the aforementioned threshold.
The Client can review the amount of Content sales in the Dized Portal or on the reports delivered by Playmore Games.
Playmore Games is solely responsible for all the taxes, levies, VATs and other similar payments that are due to Content sales and are not handled by any other platform, such as an app store.
Any Content unlocked with Backer Credits do not fall under this section and is not compensated for.

The Client is not allowed to sell, or give Dized codes for reselling purposes. The Client shall take appropriate actions to make sure any Dized codes they purchased from Playmore Games won’t end up in resale.
The prices for codes can be viewed in the Effective Pricing.
4. Special Occasions in Pricing

(As an example, bundle deals or sale events). Such cases are agreed with the Client case-by-case.
Example: if the base price is set to Tier 2 the publisher will get the tier 2 compensation from each sale, even if Playmore Games has sold the Content for a discounted price.
The Client is not allowed (and not able) without permission to edit the price for such Content during, or just before, such events or campaigns.
In the case of refunds for the Digital Rights to the Content, Playmore Games may in its discretion issue refunds to customers. Any refunds will be deducted from the payments that are paid to the Client, as long as the refund claim is due to the Content being erroneous, flawed, defective or incorrect and isn’t caused by negligence of Playmore Games or by issues with the Platform itself.
