  • Each Gig you sell and successfully complete, accredits your account with a net revenue of 80% of the purchase amount.

  • If an order is cancelled (for any reason), the funds paid will be returned to the Buyer’s Busybee Balance.

  • For security concerns, Busybee may temporarily disable a Seller’s ability to withdraw revenue to prevent fraudulent or illicit activity. This may come as a result of security issues, improper behavior reported by Buyers, or associating multiple Busybee accounts to a single withdrawal provider.

Sellers represent and warrant that they comply, and will comply at all times, with their obligations under income tax provisions in their jurisdiction.
