How much does using Prime Trade NW cost me?
There is a nominal monthly membership fee of $30 each month. This is broken down into $20 cash from your chosen bank and $10 ITEX from your member account. You will also pay a 6% cash transaction fee on all sales and purchases. If you trade nothing, your transaction fee is $0 and your membership fee is automatically withdrawn at month close. For example:
- You sell a service or product to another ITEX member for $1000.
- You then purchase a service or product within the network for $500
- Your total fees for close that month will break down as follows:
- $30 Monthly Membership Fee ($20 cash + $10 ITEX)
- $60 Transaction Fee for the $1000 purchase (6%)
- $31.20 Transaction Fee for the $500 sale
- Total cash fees for the month: $111.20
