How to Review Your Fees on Hip for the Year

Fee on Hip can be reviewed at any time from the Members Area > My Account > Account History page:


HipStamp: https://www.hipstamp.com/members/account/history
HipComic: https://www.hipcomic.com/members/account/history
HipPostcard: https://www.hippostcard.com/members/account/history


At the top of the page, you can filter your Account History, to show you any specific date range, for example, the past year.


At the top of the page, you will also see three total, which represents the following information:


  • TOTAL DEBITS - The total fees you incurred during this period.
  • TOTAL CREDITS - The total credits you were issued during this period.
  • TOTAL PAYMENTS - The total amount you paid to us during this period (via your credit card or PayPal)


Keep in mind that when you sell items at auction or offer, to the same buyer, we'll automatically combine invoices (up to a specific period of days). When this happens we'll issue you a credit for the final value fees on the original order, and create a new one, with updated final value fees. As a result, if you sell a large amount at auction or offer, you may see a higher amount of total debits than you're expecting, but just make sure to realize that you will need to subtract the total credits from that amount, to calculate your actual total fees incurred.


How to Review Your Sales on Hip for the Year

You can download a list of your sales at any time, for any specific date range, including the past year, from the Members Area > Selling > Seller Tools > Reports page:


HipStamp: https://www.hipstamp.com/members/tools/reports
HipComic: https://www.hipcomic.com/members/tools/reports
HipPostcard: https://www.hippostcard.com/members/tools/reports


For "Report Type" select "CSV - Sales Summary".


Please note that this report will be a CSV spreadsheet file, that will include a list of all items sold, with one item per row. Within any spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel or LibreOffce Calc, you can sum the "Sale Price" column for a total of all items sold by price for the specified period.


However, please keep in mind that it would not be possible to directly sum "Order Shipping And Handling" or "Order Total" as this would include duplicated data for any orders in which there was more than one item.


With the above in mind, and as Hip is not involved in the collection of payments, if you are looking for information related to your sales for tax purposes, you should generally obtain this information from PayPal.


That being said, it is always recommended to work with a tax professional for accuracy on tax reporting.
