impact.com Starter Agency Edition Billing Explained

Note

This article covers the Starter Agency Edition billing. If you are on the impact.com Starter Edition, then please refer to the article on Starter Edition billing.

When you sign up with impact.com Starter Agency Edition, you will be required to provide credit card information. This is to ensure that your digital wallet is pre-funded and can cover any costs that are incurred on a daily basis, preventing overdue payments from occurring. Monthly fees are calculated as $30 or 20% of partner commissions, whichever is greater.

Note

USD, GBP, and EUR are currently supported for any credit card payments.

Whenever your digital wallet balance is $30 lower than your owed partner and impact.com fees (plus the standard $50 or 50 currency units partner fees buffer), the system will automatically charge your credit card. This automatic charge will only happen after you’ve incurred your first partner or impact.com fees.

  • impact.com won't charge your credit card if you have a sufficient wallet balance and the fees are less than the minimum amount to charge ($30 USD or 30 currency units).

Behavior to expect

After you've incurred your first partner or impact.com fees, the system will automatically charge your credit card for those fees and a standard 50 currency units (e.g., $50) buffer for future fees.

Example scenario

*All currency amounts in this example are in USD.

For this scenario, we assume you sign up and complete your billing information on 12 May.

On 12 May:

  • Current Digital Wallet Balance: $0

  • Costs: $0

  • Total value = $0

Is there an auto-charge? No, you've not incurred any fees yet.

On 30 May:

By 30 May you managed to secure contracts with partners who drive traffic that resulted in conversions for which you need to pay $25 in commissions.

While these actions will only lock on 20 June, they have already happened, so their costs will be included in the calculated total value on 30 May and will only be deducted from your digital wallet once the actions lock.

  • Current Digital Wallet Balance: $0

  • Costs: $25 (Partner Costs)

  • Buffer Amount: $50

  • Total expense = $75 ($25 costs + $50 buffer - $0 digital wallet balance)

Is there an auto-charge? Since you've incurred your first costs, there will be an auto-charge to your credit card.

On 1 June:

On 1 June, impact.com charges a monthly minimum of $30, which is due on and will clear on 2 June. The monthly usage fee is charged on the 1st of each month for usage of the previous month.

  • Current Digital Wallet Balance: $75

  • Costs: $30 ($30 for impact.com fees)

  • Total expense = $30 ($30 (fees) + $25 (partner costs) + $50 (buffer) - $75 (balance))

Is there an auto-charge? Since your digital wallet balance is not sufficient to cover the incurred costs plus a buffer, there will be a $30 auto-charge.

On 2 June: (after the impact.com fees have cleared):

  • New Digital Wallet Balance: $70 ($110 previous balance - $40 impact.com fees)

Is there an auto-charge? Since your digital wallet balance is $70 more than the incurred costs, there will not be an auto-charge for the costs.
