This Agreement will automatically terminate if you are; (a) not a Developer of good standing as determined by Jadu from time to time, or; (b) a person or entity barred from using Jadu products or services under the laws of any juridiction whether or not you are resident and/or use Jadu Products/services in that jurisdiction.

3. Pricing and Payments
3.1 Supported users and customers are free to develop applications for the Jadu platforms and submit them to the MarketPlace for review and publishing. You can distribute your products and make them available free of charge - or you can charge a fee. Charging a fee requires you pay a listing fee.
Commercial technology suppliers can re-sell Jadu products and develop applications to sell to Jadu users and customers on MarketPlace by becoming a Jadu Developer as part of the Jadu Enrterprise delivery partner program. Once you are an Enterprise Delivery Partner, you can distribute your products on MarketPlace.
You may set the price for your Products or Professional Services in the currency options permitted by the MarketPlace. The MarketPlace may display to users the price of your Products or Professional Services in their native currency. Jadu is not responsible for the accuracy of currency rates or conversion.
3.2 If you distribute Products through the MarketPlace for a fee, you will pay Jadu a non-refundable listing fee ("Listing Fee") and a transaction fee ("Transaction Fee"), as defined below.
3.2.1 Jadu will facilitate the transaction with the purchaser of any Products or Professional Services via the MarketPlace payment interface. The total sum of purchases made of a Developer's Products and/or Professional Services will be calculated and paid to the Developer on a monthly basis less any Listing Fees and Transaction Fees which shall be deducted by Jadu . Where a Developer's Product and/or Professional Service has been listed for a month and has not been purchased through the MarketPlace during that period, Jadu will invoice the Developer for the applicable Listing Fee. Jadu will make the payments set out above to the Developer within 30 days of receipt of payment from the purchaser.
3.2.2 The purchaser may opt to purchase the Products and Professional Services by Purchase Order. In such cases, Jadu will invoice the purchaser and will account to the Developer as set out in 3.2.1
3.3 If you choose to distribute Products or Professional Services free of charge through the MarketPlace, you may, at Jadu's discretion , be charged the Listing Fee but you will not be charged a Transaction Fee. You may not subsequently collect charges or fees from users for any Products and/or Professional Services that those users were initially allowed to download or howsoever obtain for free. This is not intended to prevent distribution of free trial versions of a Product with an "upsell" option to obtain a full or substantially different version of the Product. Such free trials for Products are encouraged, however, if you want to charge fees for Products after the free trial expires, you must collect all fees as transactions for the full version of the Product through the billing interfaces and the Payment Processor of the MarketPlace.
All fees received by Developers for Products and Professional Services distributed via the MarketPlace must be processed by the MarketPlace Payment Processor or via invoice from Jadu to the purchaser upon receipt of a valid and authorised purchase order from the purchaser.

For new Developers without Product or Professional Service history, Jadu may use or publish performance measurements such as uninstall or refund rates to identify or remove Products or Professional Services that are not meeting acceptable standards, as determined by Jadu. Jadu reserves the right to display Products or Professional Services to users in a manner that will be determined at Jadu's sole discretion. You will not attempt to change or change the placement of any Product or Professional Service on the MarketPlace by (a) offering incentives to users to rate your Product or Professional Service with higher or lower ratings; or (b) by rating your own Product or Professional Service multiple times.
