As a seller, you are able add free product variants to your digital store. Adding a free product is similar to adding a paid product. However, instead of adding a price, you would select "Free" as the price.

Free product variant limitations

  • Each product can only have 1 free variant.
  • Free members can have up to 5 free variants in total. The sum of all files in the variant must be less than 50 MB. 
  • Pro members can have up to 30 free variants in total. The sum of all files in the variant must be less than 500MB.

The limitations are lifted as soon as you price a product at the minimum transaction price of $1.

Free Products FAQ

Why are there limitations on free products?

The limitations are in place to prevent the ArtStation Marketplace from turning into a free file sharing site.

Will my free product trend if I have a lot of downloads?

No, free products will never trend. The Trending wall is for paid products. We wouldn't want the Trending wall to be overrun by free products.

Can a buyer still pay what they want for a free product?

Yes, buyers have the option to leave a tip for Free and paid products. They can choose a preselected amount or enter a custom amount.

How will tips affect my earnings?

Tips are commissioned at the same amount as the product – sellers will receive 70-80% of the tip amount. Tips are also currently only released on the community marketplace and not on user website stores in this initial release.
