Competitions are the backbone of the Context platform. They operate hand in hand with our external integrations such as Smashgg, Battlefy & Challonge. Payouts are calculated based on the standings of your tournament, so you don't need to worry about it.
In order to verify payouts go to the correct players, when running your bracket please make sure that users are signed up with an actual account on the respective platform where the event is being hosted, manually entering users into the bracket will create problems when finalizing a competition.

A Context Community is the central hub for your organization or esports community. Selecting a community on the first step when creating a competition attaches it to it, meaning the competiton will show on your community landing page.
Communities can also facilitate Subscriptions and Direct donations, allowing you to explore new sources of revenue and further fund your competitions. A portion of the revenue is allowed to be freely withdrawn from the Context platform, however the remaining portion will stay within the system and can be put towards new competitions or donations to other competitions.
Context charges a 3% service fee for every transaction. Along with this, fees for PayPal include both a transaction fee & payout fee. The transaction fee is 4.4% + $0.30 per transaction whereas the payout fee is 2%. We charge this payout fee when money comes into the system in order to ensure players receive 100% of the winnings when withdrawing.
You can see a full transparent breakdown of the fees charged before confirming your payment.
