    The ICANN Toll-Road - 25 Cents Per Transaction

    The ICANN Toll-Road - 25 Cents Per Transaction

    http://www.icann.org/financials/budget-fy04-05-06o ct04.html#invoicing

    Invoicing of Transaction-Based gTLD Fees

    In recognition of various accounting methods and business models employed by registrars, multi-year registration fees can be paid in one of two ways at the option of each registrar.

            * The fee may be paid complete during the calendar quarter of the transaction. For example, in the case of a three-year registration, the registrar may elect to pay the 75-cent fee at the end of the quarter in which the registration occurred. (Current fees.)
            * The fee payable for the registration years beyond the first year can be deferred and paid year-by-year. For example, in the case of a three-year registration, a 25-cent fee shall be paid at the end of the quarter in which the registration occurred, a 25-cent fee will be paid one-year after the first payment, and a 25-cent fee will be paid two years after the first payment. (Deferred fees.)

    Registrars will be asked if they wish to pay fees on a current or deferred basis prior to calculation and sending the first invoice. If no response is received, the full, multi-year transaction fee will be invoiced. Registrars can make one election between current and deferred fee schedules, that election will be effective for the remainder of fiscal year.

    Registrars are dropping out.

    "The big questions is can just a few large registrars bare the entirety of
    the 3.8M registrar fees? Well, they don't have to. No registrar will pay
    more than 20K in ICANN fees, which will leave ICANN in worse shape.

    If you believe that ICANN was sufficiently staffed for its mandate -- we
    will test this and many other things as we witness the first real full
    business cycle in our industry.

    now, I'm going to tell ICANN that they can stuff my application for
    accreditation and I'm not going to make it operational. Anyone need an
    accreditation, its in-queue with a 90 day ETA -- just name your price =)"
