Royalties


All Agreements provides that the invoicing of royalties covers the use of the technology, of the smartphone applications, and of our "Switchboards".

It is a very important development of the profession: the tariff of our royalties is public and known by all, to allow everyone to make all useful comparisons.

"Licensees" (e.g, brands and governments)

"Licensees" pay to PopimsCode:
A fixed annual fee of euro 12,000 + VAT
And a unit charge that is different depending on whether it is a product or a document..

Royalties for products
           Quantity           Price
           50           1,500 euro + VAT
           from 51 to 500           1,000 euro + VAT
           from 501 to 5 000           0,600 euro + VAT
           from 5 001 to 50 000           0,350 euro + VAT

           from 500 000 001 to 5 000 000 000           0,003 euro + VAT
           more than 5 000 000 000           0,002 euro + VAT
Lower unit royalties are proposed when the marking is in two dimensions (thus easy to copy by counterfeiters).

Fees for documents
The fees vary from 0.10 to 0.80 euros per code per year for personal identification cards, depending on the total value of the same order and the number of authentications provided for the document.
There are lower rates for other documents.

Master-Licensees (e.g companies selling secure traceability services)

"Master-Licensees" pay to PopimsCode:
A fixed annual fee of 60,000 euro + VAT
Quarterly advances of 12 000 euro + VAT, on which the royalties actually payable are subsequently charged,
And a fixed fee of 0.1 centimes HT per code put into service.
They also pay to PopimsCode the royalties paid to them by the "Licensees".
The Master-Licensees can accumulate their quantities corresponding to different Licensees to benefit from the most advantageous tariff.
When the Licensee wishes to be his own Master-Licensee, he pays both royalties.
These tariffs are indexed, base 100 on January 1. 2017.
PopimsCode warrants to all its "Master-Licensed" and "Licensed" licensees that it will not receive any remuneration from ink suppliers, printers, printing systems, computer service companies managing Databases, cameras, etc. Even if it promotes them on its website.
