Earnings and Payouts in IP Marketplace

Learn how to set the payout method to receive earnings for leased subnets in IPXO's IP address marketplace.

IPXO’s IP address marketplace allows you to bring your IP address range (subnet) and lease it to other marketplace customers for a set price. Once a sale is made, you will receive the amount specified in the Subnet price /mo field with your next payout.

When will I receive my earnings?

Your IPXO marketplace earnings are paid monthly before the 14th of the following month.

Make sure to choose the payment method and add your account so that we could transfer the payout successfully. You can set this up in Portal -> Profile -> Billing -> Payment & Payout Methods -> Payout Methods.

Payout Methods tab in IPXO Portal's Payments & Payout Methods menu.

Keep in mind that if you choose a Bank Transfer as your payout method, you will have to pay a withdrawal fee of $25 + transaction fees that your bank might apply. It might take 5-7 business days for an international transfer to reach you.

Payouts: calculation and dates

The algorithm for calculating payouts is quite simple. We start the calculation when the subnet, or its part, is leased by the lessee. Immediately, we start tracking the time in seconds.

At the end of the month, the leased time in seconds is divided by the seconds within that particular month to calculate the lease time in percent. The number is multiplied by the monthly earnings that the owner sets when adding the subnet to the marketplace.

For example, we have added the subnet to the IPXO marketplace and set pricing as follows:

  • $120 /month for /23
  • $65 /month for /24 is leased by the lessee on the 15th of the month that has 31 days at 8:28:00 UTC. By the end of the month, the subnet has been leased for 1,438,320 seconds. 31 days consist of 2,678,400 seconds. According to our algorithm, the leased time is 53.7%, which means that the payout is: $65 x 0.537= $34.9.

Payout date

Payouts are calculated at the end of the month and are transferred using the selected payout method by the 14th of the following month.

Note: If you do not set up a payout method, IPXO will not be able to transfer payouts. IPXO’s Support team will contact you with a request to update billing information; however, it is your responsibility to set up the payout method.

If IPXO is unable to send you the payout, the payout for that month will be added to the next month’s payout; assuming that the billing information is updated and other issues do not occur.
