IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ REGARDING THE PARTNER PROGRAM AND PAYOUTS

Overview
The Indy Pro ’22 Partner Program is what we call the profit-sharing model Indy Pro ’22 is using with Talent in the game. As long as the game is profitable, we will share a portion of the Net Profits with verified talent. We reserve the right to end the profit sharing whenever the game is no longer profitable.

Payout Timing

Payments for Indy Pro ’22 will be issued monthly starting on or around January 15th, 2023. While the game will be released on November 1st, 2022, we will not receive any proceeds from Steam for November sales until December 30th. 

Payout Amounts

The Indy Pro ’22 Partner Program is a profit-sharing program designed to give back to the awesome talents who have made this game possible. The talent payout is 50% of net profits divided by the number of verified partner program signups at the disbursement calculation. Net Profit, as defined by Valdarix Games, is the profit received after the game delivery platform(s) have taken their cut (usually 30%) and after development costs have been recouped. You will be able to see expected payouts in your Partner Dashboard (once it is online). You will also be able to see the sales details for the game in your dashboard. We want to be 100% transparent about how the game is selling and what your cuts will be. The dashboard will also list the break-even point for development. We will only make a payout if there is enough due to cover the cost of the payout and fees through PayPal. In the future we will have a hard minimum payout limit but we currently do not know that amount. 

Your dashboard login credentials will be issued to you once we have verified your signup to the email address provided below.  The dashboard is still a work in progress, but you will have your credentials before the first payout date. 

Payout Methods
You can select how you want your proceeds disbursed between PayPal or Venmo. You will need to supply your cell phone number for Venmo.  We will also need a valid email address for both PayPal and your dashboard account. You do not need to have a current PayPal account at the moment, just a valid email address will do. We will be issuing payments from PayPal, which supports payments to both PayPal and Venmo. At this time, we cannot provide payouts in any other way, this may change in the future, but for now, PayPal and Venmo are the only options. 

Payout Requirements
You will only receive a payout if you complete this entire form. When the monthly disbursement is calculated, the percentage split will be determined by the number of verified signups (not the total roster size). You MUST complete this form by December 30th to be in the initial payout on January 15th. Failure to do so will forfeit any proceeds due to you for November. You will only be calculated in the payout if you have submitted your form; we will NOT hold a payout for you if you have not signed up. So there are NO retroactive payouts. 

Please take your time and ensure everything is accurate. You will be able to edit this information in your dashboard when it is assigned. Your dashboard credentials will be emailed to the address you provided below before making the first payout. 


Payout Limits and W-9s

Filling out this form allows us to issue payouts to you up to USD 599.00 for a calendar year. If Indy Pro ’22 is successful enough that payments exceed USD 599.00, we will need to request that you fill out an IRS W-9 form and submit it to Valdarix Games before we can issue any amounts over USD 599.00 for any calendar year. Failure to submit a requested W-9 promptly may impact the timing of your payouts. If a total amount over USD 599.00 is made to you in a calendar year, we will issue you a 1099-Misc so that we remain in compliance with IRS tax rules. This W-9 form will only be requested IF payouts exceed $599.00. Any amount less than that does not have a tax reporting obligation. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Payouts@ValdarixGames.com, and we will get back to you promptly. 

This is not optional, we need this to verify who we are paying.
If you have changed this since you originally signed up for Indy Pro '22 please try to put the name you signed up as.
This must be a valid email address. We will send you login credentials to the dashboard to this email address and it is where payments for those who select PayPal will be sent. Failure to provide a correct email address may delay payouts.
(Required if selecting Venmo)
