Existing Currencies



How to choose a local currency

When setting your default currency it is best to choose the currency where you are locally based, or have the the biggest viewership. See below for tax information. If you wish to develop your own customized offer setup, we also enabled them through our API. Just click the Developers API link for more information. 


You have two (2) options:

1. When setting up an account with Cleeng, you are able to choose your default currency. In this currency you sell and also receive the payout.

  • NOTE:  ZAR, XOF, NGN, KES, and GHS are not available as a default currency for your Broadcaster's account, please contact our friendly Customer Success team for assistance.

2. If you wish to offer a particular video or event in any other currency than your default one, you can do it while creating an offer from your Cleeng Broadcaster Dashboard.



As we expand our services and penetrate new markets this list will continue grow so keep an eye on it! If you are looking to launch your service in an unsupported language or currency, please contact us for information on how you can get it added.

International Ticket Pricing

International Ticket Pricing refers to the cost of a ticket/subscription that the viewer will see with the automatic calculation of VAT. Please see below for a few examples of how it works.



1. Broadcaster is based in the EU - VAT is automatically calculated to the country in which the broadcaster is based.


To illustrate: 

Broadcaster Location: France (20% VAT)

  • Broadcaster sets offer price to 10 EUR
  • Broadcaster Net Earnings: (10/1.2) = 8.33 (This is the price on which subsequent VATs will be calculated in other EU countries)
  • VAT France: 1.77

Viewer Location: Poland (23% VAT)

  • Broadcaster Net Earnings: 8.33
  • VAT Poland: 1.92
  • Viewer pays: 10.25

Viewer Location: France (20% VAT)

  • Broadcaster Net Earnings: 8.33
  • VAT France: 1.77
  • Viewer pays: 10

2. If the Broadcaster is based outside the EU - VAT is not set, and margin is at full offer price.


To illustrate: 

Broadcaster Location: USA (0% VAT)

  • Broadcaster sets offer price to 10 EUR
  • Broadcaster Net Earnings: 10 (This is the price on which subsequent VATs will be calculated in other EU countries)
  • VAT: N/A

Viewer Location: Poland (23% VAT)

  • Broadcaster Net Earnings: 10
  • VAT Poland: 2.30
  • Viewer pays: 12.30
