If your item is approved for sale, you will receive a percentage of every sale into your account earnings. If you choose to keep your portfolio of items exclusive to the Marketplace then the percentage you earn begins at 60% and increments up to 80% as you sell more files. If you choose to sell the same items elsewhere and opt to be a non-exclusive author you will receive 50% of each sale. You can find out more about percentages on the Payment Rates page.
Note that exclusivity does not mean you cannot sell other items elsewhere. It only means the items you sell here must exclusively sold here. We have created this system to help make the Marketplace libraries as unique and valuable as possible.
How is Payment Made?
Each sale of one of your items will result in an increased earnings balance in your account. Your earnings can be used in the following ways:
At any time you may choose to use your earnings to purchase files on any of the Marketplace.
Once your balance has reached $50, you may request a payout to your PayPal account that you specify via your Account page.
All payment requests are processed at the start of each new month and paid out on the 15th of that month. For example, if you request a payout on the 21st of March, payment will be made on the 15th of April. If the 15th of the month falls on a weekend or public holiday, payment will be made the next business day.
In order for an item to be accepted on the Marketplace it needs to follow the upload instructions and fulfill our quality standards. Each item type has its own upload instructions and file preparation guidelines.
