Printed Product Earnings
ArtStation enables you to sell prints of your artworks! You just upload, start selling and earning!
How it works
This is how ArtStation Prints earnings work:
Base Price + Artist Margin = Retail Price
The base price covers ArtStation's service fees. We deal with all the printing, hosting, marketing, supply chain, shipping/handling, payment processing fees. In that base fee, we also deal with the cases that you definitely don't want to deal with including customer support, potential returns, reshipping on damaged goods, etc.
Artist Margin (your earnings)
This is how much you make from each sale. When creating a new print, the default markup is set to 20% but you can edit this. To ensure that you make a fair margin on your prints, ArtStation has a markup minimum of 10%.
PRO members make an additional 5% of the base price on each sale.
Discounts & Promotions
Having site wide promotions will enable us to drive more traffic to your products. In the event of a discount or promotion, we discount the base price of the product, so keep in mind that this affects your artist margin.
For example, say you have a product with a base price of $50.00. For this product, if your markup is set to 20%, your margin will be $10.00 and your product’s retail price will be $60.00.
As a PRO Member, you would earn an additional 5% on the base price, so using the example above, you would earn an extra $2.50 per sale.
If we were to run a promotion on that same item and take 10% off the base price, the new base price is now $45.00. With your fixed 20% markup, your margin is now $9.00 per sale (+$2.25 for PRO members) and the retail price is then $54.00.
