Introducing Membership Subscription
We are excited to introduce membership subscriptions and 98% commission on product sales. Starting January 13th, 2021, you will be required to subscribe to a monthly or yearly subscription to sell your product on muthurwa.com.
UPDATE: We have added 0.5% processing fee that we had left out in the email we sent to sellers on 11th January 2021.
New Commission Structure
With the new commission structure, you will earn 98% of the sales you make for each product, 18% up from the initial 80%. This therefore means means that muthurwa.com will not earn any commission from your product sales as 1.5% is the tax that we will submit to KRA as Digital Service tax (DST) and 0.5% is processing fee. You can read more about KRA’s digital service tax that came into effect on 1st January 2021.
Types of Membership subscriptions
There will be two types of membership subscriptions. Monthly and yearly subscriptions plans.
- Yearly Subscription (33% off and most popular): It will cost Ksh 2,000 and will be renewed every year for unlimited products. With a yearly subscription, you will save 33% as compared to monthly subscriptions.
- Monthly subscription: It will cost Ksh. 250 and will be renewed every month for unlimited products.
Benefits of Membership Subscription
The benefits of a membership subscription as compared to product commission is that it increases the amount of earnings that you can generate from your products sales. For instance, if you sell one house plan for Ksh. 10,000, muthurwa.com earns Ksh. 2000 as product commission. And if you sell 10 similar house plans in a month, we will earn 20,000 as you earn 80,000. But when it comes to membership subscription, you will only pay ksh. 250 for all products you sell in a month and if you want to save 33%, you can pay a yearly subscription of Ksh. 2000 only.
