Brand Questions

How much does it cost?
expand text symbol

Squaredance only charges brands a 15% fee of their partner payout X weekly number of sales. For example, if your payout is $60 and your partners generate 300 sales in any given week, the fee would be calculated as follows:

60 X 300 = $18,000

15% (base fee) of $18,000 = $2,700

* fee discounts are applied when revenue thresholds are achieved, as per this scale:

Base Fee ⮕ Weekly Volume
15.00% ⮕ 0 - $24,999
14.50% ⮕ $25,000 - $49,999
14.00% ⮕ $50,000 - $99,999
13.00% ⮕ $100,000 - $149,999
12.00% ⮕ $150,000 - $199,999
11.00% ⮕ $200,000 +
