    4. Calculation of the Monthly GMV Fee and/or Monthly Ad Spend Fee:
      • Monthly Reset. Where the SOW states that the GMV or Ad Spend resets every monthly period, the amount of the Monthly GMV Fee and/or Monthly Ad Spend Fee shall be calculated at the end of the calendar month in which it was accrued, in accordance with the following process: first, the amount of GMV/Ad Spend shall be identified. Then the GMV/Ad Spend percentage listed in the SOW shall be applied to the total monthly GMV/Ad Spend to determine the applicable Monthly GMV/Ad Spend Fee.
      • Annual Reset. Where the SOW states that the GMV or Ad Spend resets every annual period, the amount of the Monthly GMV Fee and/or Monthly Ad Spend fee shall be calculated at the close of the calendar month in which it was accrued, in accordance with the following process: first, the amount of GMV/Ad Spend in a certain month shall be calculated. Then the applicable GMV/Ad Spend percentage rate from the table above shall be applied to the amount equal to the difference in: (a) the cumulative GMV/Ad Spend amount accrued year-to-date as of the month in which the invoice pertains, and (b) the cumulative GMV/Ad Spend amount from the preceding month.
      • Changes to Tier. If the parties modify the GMV or Ad Spend tier via a mutually signed amendment to the SOW, unless otherwise stated in such amendment and regardless of the amendment’s Effective Date, the GMV or Ad Spend tier shall reset on the first calendar day of the immediately following accrual period (i.e. where GMV or Ad Spends tier resets every monthly period, on the first calendar day of the subsequent month; where GMV or Ad Spends tier resets every annual period, on the first calendar day of the subsequent annual period). For annual GMV or Ad Spend tiers, if the parties modify or extend the then-current SOW Term, the annual reset date shall not change unless otherwise expressly stated in a mutually signed writing.
      • Mid-Month Tier Changes. If the parties agree to modify the GMV or Ad Spend tier via a mutually signed amendment to the SOW prior to first calendar day of a monthly reset period (i.e., prior to the first calendar day of the subsequent month following the accrual of GMV), ChannelAdvisor shall apply the GMV or Ad Spend rate applicable for the majority of the accrual period until such period resets (ex: if the GMV or Ad Spend is modified on the 20th calendar day of a month, the rate applicable to the first twenty (20) days shall apply for the whole monthly period).
