For example, if a sale of one of your courses happens on the 1st of August, you will get your agreeable percentage by the 1st of November, this will be handled and calculated automatically by the payroll and has nothing to do with the milestone. What we meant by the milestone is that there will be no full-time employment until reaching it.
