Old commission model

On March 2nd, 2020 we introduced a new commission model for all Spreadshops. The commission for orders received in your Shop before this date will still be calculated according to the old commission model. Orders placed after March 2nd, 2020 will be invoiced according to the new model.

This is how you earned your money in the past

Under the old commission model, the money you earned with your products was determined by the amount you set as your design price. This was charged to your customers whenever they bought a product featuring your design.

Other sources of income

As a Shop Owner, we credited your account with the Affiliate Commission for every item sold in your Shop. This amounted to 20% of the income from the product and print price minus sales tax, which varied depending on the country of delivery. If you sold at least 26 products in one month, you could further increase your commission by earning a volume commission.

The volume commission was calculated from sales with the affiliate commission. Non-profit shops could waive the affiliate commission and were excluded from earning the volume commission. Only products that were paid, shipped and not returned are counted for the volume commission. The table below shows you the tiers of the volume commission according to the number of products sold.
