Does Sessions take a cut from the Fan-donated tips?
All the Love you gift the Artist, whether through the Chat Messages or through Stickers, leaves your account and is granted to the Artist entirely. Sessions does not take any cuts from the amount of Love granted by Fans to the Artists they are supporting: if the Artist had 100 Love in their account and you grant them 50 Love, those 50 Love will be removed from your account and they will end up with 150 Love in theirs.
As Artists accumulate Love in their account, they are completely free to do something called a "Cash-out" and turn this Love into funds for their PayPal account if they are Artist Level 4 or above. This is how they can profit monetarily from the virtual "Love" currency and how you are helping them financially. This is also why the Love you gift the Artist is so important to them - this virtual currency, alongside the Bonus Love we add to them by participating in our programs, can be converted into real money if requested by them.
- Please note that the price of Fan-purchased Love depends on the method used to purchase the Love (which can vary by platform and device you're using, or where in the world you're located). This variation is caused by fees generated by the payment method used, fees generated by your device's store, alongside Sessions administrative fees. These factors will cause a difference between the money spent by the Fan and the amount that the Artist will be able to cash out.
