Pricing / Usage Fees FAQ
How much does Limited Run cost?
We ask for 5% of sales.
Can I get a discount if I'm doing a lot of business?
Absolutely! We will never ever take more than $250 a month from you. This means that anything you sell over $5000 for the month, is completely fee free.
What if I have more than one store? Do I get a better discount?
Absolutely Again! We haven't released our multi store pricing yet, but your max per month could get all the way down to $150 a month, if you had enough stores. Click the Email us button at the top, to discuss it.
How are ticket sales free, yet I see you charging me $1 per ticket?
This is a great question. Here's how we make ticket sales free for the store owner: At checkout we automatically add a $1 fee per ticket, to the cart. Your customers pays you that fee, and then at the end of the month, you pass that fee to us. So the $1 we're asking you to pay us, you collected from your customer at checkout.
Can I add a fee on top of that $1?
Yes you can! Just click the gear icon next to the ticket variation.
Does that fee count towards my max per month?
Unfortunately it doesn't. The fee that you collect from your customers, and pass on to us, is separate from the max store payment we charge you. This is why your bill might be over the max, if you sell tickets. But don't worry, it's not all your money in that bill.
Do you need my credit card to pay for my store?
No. (See below.)
Do you need me to sign up for a PayPal subscription to pay for my store?
No. (See below.)
So, how do I pay for my store?
Every charge, like a 5% fee or ticket selling charge, gets added to your bill.
If you're using the default "Pay as You Earn" payment method, when a sale comes into your store that is less than or equal to your bill, that sale triggers an automatic payment from your PayPal account to pay down your bill. This payment shows up as a "Partner Fee", in one of your sales. You don't need a credit card when using this payment method, everything happens automatically.
If you're using the optional "Pay on a Schedule" payment method, your sales won't be used to pay down your store's bill. Instead, your saved credit card will be charged monthly on your "Open For Business" day, to clear your balance. You'll be emailed a payment summary when it happens. To turn on "Pay on a Schedule", go to your store's settings area and click "Change Payment Method" across from "Current Usage". Your card will be charged the amount on your store's balance when switching to this payment method, and then monthly on your "Open For Business" day.
Can I switch my payment method whenever I want?
Yes! You can switch your payment method between "Pay as You Earn" and "Pay on a Schedule" at any time from your store's Settings area. Just click the "Change Payment Method" link.
Where can I see my current bill?
You can see your current bill, as well as any charges and payments, by clicking the "View Balance" link in the "Settings" area of your dashboard.
Does my customer ever see you in a transaction?
No, that would be terrible! Your customer only pays you. You only pay us. Every one of your sales will be in your own PayPal account.
Do I pay for digital items I sell or giveaway?
No! Sell or giveaway as much as you want. You only pay 5% of sales, with no added usage fees.
I can't believe the Newsletter feature is FREE! How is that possible?
The Newsletter feature is free as long as you use LR for your official storefront. It's our way of saying thank you.
What if I do a "name your own price" digital item?
If you do a "name your own price" digital item with a minimum of 0, we'll only charge you if your customer gives you more than 0.
Can I close my store at any time?
Yes. You can read the instructions here.
