Ze determines the price at which Products are sold on the Site. You can see Ze's standard retail prices here. The actual retail price for Products incorporating your Designs may vary based upon Your Royalty Rate (see below).
Ze will pay you a Royalty rate for all public (i.e., not to you) sales of Products incorporating your Design ("Royalty"). Ze's standard Royalty rate and the Maximum Royalty Rates are set forth in ("Standard Royalty Rate"), but you have the option of selecting any Royalty rate between the Standard Royalty Rate and the Maximum Royalty Rates as set forth in the table (in increments of 0.5%) for each of your Designs as incorporated in each Product category ("Your Royalty Rate"). Ze's list prices are based upon the Standard Royalty Rate. The table may be updated from time-to-time as new Product offerings become available. You can change Your Royalty Rate at any time and the changes that we receive will go into effect periodically as determined by Ze. If Your Royalty Rate is greater than the Standard Royalty Rate, Ze will change the purchase price to reflect the increased Royalty payable to you. Primacies earned in currency other than your selected payment currency will be converted to your payment currency and is subject to foreign currency conversion fees.
Your Royalty will be calculated as follows:
Your-Royalty Calculation: Your Royalty Rate multiplied by Net Sales of Products incorporating your Design. "Net Sales" means the purchase price received by Ze minus amounts charged for (i) shipping and handling, packaging; (ii) sales or similar taxes; (iii) refunds, credits, and reversals; (iv) upcharges for special sizes, embellishments, and other add-on charges ("Upcharges").

* "Gross Royalty" equals the Name-Your-Royalty Calculation plus the Upcharges Royalty Calculation.
Primacies are only paid on Products that incorporate your Designs. Ze will not pay you Royalties on articles or items that are optional or which by themselves are not essential to the Product but when they are added to Products they make them more useful, versatile, or attractive ("Accessories"), even when purchased at the same time as a Product that incorporates your Design. Accessories include but are not limited to shoe laces, hangers, framing, and skateboards wheels and trucks.
