Image of valME transaction costs

Transaction costs are currently set as follows, but may change. (Yes, of course, if they change, we’ll update them here.) Also, sponsor accounts have the capability to change the prices of post and comment submissions. (Sponsor accounts can get a percentage of post and comment submissions if they decide to charge differently.) If the price is different for a specific community from what is listed below, we will indicate it as such on the submission page.

About FAQ


We’re not entirely sure it’s appropriate to call this the Frequently Asked Questions area as, candidly, we don’t keep track of how often these questions get asked. Consider this community as a place where we post answers to what we anticipate your questions will be. But, if our crystal ball is malfunctioning, feel free to post your question in /GettingStarted/Help. If we turn your question into an FAQ, we’ll credit you back the karma to post it. It’s the least we can do. We also welcome suggestions at /GettingStarted/SuggestionBox.
