Price of the paid service
- Main definitions
“Call price” It is the price per hour set by the tutor for the conversation lesson service. The tutor sets the call price according to the conditions provided by the company, and the tutor takes full responsibility upon the decision of the call price.
“Basic exchange rate”
It is the exchange rate on the system the company uses to convert foreign currency, excluding the commission or the price raise rate of the company. The exchange rate is decided considering more than one third party like the Open Exchange Rates (Exchange rate provision service) etc; and in order to prevent the change of price on daily basis, the exchange rate is decided after a set cycle (ex: monthly basis). Therefore, the basic exchange rate might be different from the exchange rate valid in a certain period, when the foreign currency was converted.
The learners must make the payment for the required amount before beginning the session according to the price published on the app or the website. The payment for the expenses required for learners to excess the service via the app or the website are conducted via payment systems of other companies (Paypal, credit card payment system etc.). All conditions for using the payment systems are applied according to the relevant contract of the payment systems of other company.
“The purchase price” is the price actually paid by the learner for the paid service. If the payment currency is different from the basic currency due to the learner’s nationality, location etc.; the purchase price is decided based on the basic currency and cost adjustment factors.
European Union (EU)If the user belongs to the EU country, value added tax(VAT) is imposed to the purchase price for the service according to related laws. Fronty collects and transfers the VAT to the taxation department in charge of the service for the payment from the users of EU. Fronty may raise the price to cover the VAT expense according to the own decision and take responsibility for corresponding accounts. In order to protect Fronty from the loss brought by claims and the penalty of the taxation department and/or interests caused by the underpayment of VAT; the users compensate the corresponding amount.
- Other countries
In other countries outside the EU, the users should pay tax to the corresponding taxation department for the payment made by using the service (the taxation department may differ in the residential location). Fronty cannot provide advice about the taxation, therefore the user should directly make inquiry to the taxation officers.
- Call time calculation
The company limits the call price per minute based on the hourly wage set by the tutor to the hundredth digit after the decimal point.
In order to calculate the call time, the call time is counted on the minute basis. For example, 70 seconds are considered as a 1 minute, 150 seconds are 2 minutes.
Call time cost per session is calculated according to the formula: call time(minutes) X price per minute of the correspondent tutor and the cost is calculated to the hundredth digit after the decimal point.
- Foreign currency
The app service of the company sets the basic sales currency according to the geographical location of the user. Foreign currency conversion of each country is conducted according to the exchange rate of foreign currency. This rate means the amount in one currency needs to be paid to buy the corresponding amount in another currency in given moment of the time. For example, if US$125.00 is required in order to buy €100.00, then the currency exchange rate of US dollar to Euro is 1.25, and The rate of Euro to US dollar is 0.8. The currency exchange rate might be changed frequently.
