The IPXO marketplace provides an opportunity for you to monetize your IP address range (subnet) by leasing it to other customers within the marketplace at a predetermined price.

Below, we have addressed some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this process.

Note: For a detailed step-by-step guide on how to monetize your IP subnet in the marketplace, you can refer to our comprehensive tutorial: How to Monetize Your IP Subnet in the Marketplace.

Payout date

Your IPXO marketplace earnings are disbursed monthly, with payouts occurring by the last day of a following month.

Payouts are calculated at the end of each month and are then transferred to you using the payout method you have selected by the last day of the subsequent calendar month.

Where do I receive my earning

To receive your earnings, you can set up your preferred payout method by following these steps:

Log in to your IPXO account and navigate to the Portal > Profile > Settings and Billing > Payout Methods.

Payout Methods options in the IPXO Marketplace Settings and Billing menu

Withdrawal options and payout policies

If you choose PayPal as your withdrawal method, there will be no withdrawal fee, and the minimum payout amount for PayPal is $1000.

For bank transfer withdrawals, a withdrawal fee of $25, along with any transaction fees imposed by your bank, will be applicable. The minimum payout amount for bank transfers is also $1000. International transfers may take approximately 5-7 business days to reach your account.

Opting for a payout to credit balance does not incur any charges. Your earnings will be converted into credit seamlessly.

In the event of account closure, the minimum payout threshold is $50.

If IPXO is unable to process your payout, the amount for that month will be included in the next month's payout. This assumes that your billing information is up to date and there are no other issues affecting the payout process.

Payouts: calculation and dates

The calculation of payouts in the IPXO marketplace follows a straightforward algorithm. It begins when a subnet or a portion of it is leased by a lessee, and the tracking of time in seconds starts immediately.

At the end of the month, the leased time in seconds is divided by the total seconds in that month to determine the lease time as a percentage. This percentage is then multiplied by the monthly earnings set by the subnet holder when adding the subnet to the marketplace. Subsequently, a 5% fee for the IP Holder is deducted from the calculated payout.

To illustrate this process, let's consider an example using the subnet in the IPXO marketplace, with the following pricing:

  • $120 /month for /23 
  • $65 /month for /24 

Suppose the lessee leases the subnet on the 15th of a month with 31 days at 8:28:00 UTC. By the end of the month, the subnet had been leased for a total of 1,438,320 seconds. In contrast, the entire month consists of 2,678,400 seconds. Applying our algorithm, the leased time accounts for 53.7% of the month, resulting in earnings of $65 multiplied by 0.537, equaling $34.9. After deducting the 5% IP Holder's fee, the final payout amounts to $33.15.

Please note that this calculation methodology applies to determine the payouts for leased subnets within the IPXO marketplace.
