Affiliate Commission (old model)

A new commission model for Shop Owners will come into effect on March 2nd, 2020. The following FAQ refers to the old commission model for sales made up to and including March 1st, 2020.

With Spreadshirt you can sell your own designs on personalised products. There are three ways to earn money: the design price, the Affiliate Commission connected to this article, as well as the Volume Commission resulting from more sales. The credit you accumulate by selling designs and products will be paid out to you according to our GTC. More information about payments to you can be found here.

Affiliate Commission

As a Shop Partner, we credit your account with the Affiliate Commission for every item sold in your shop. This amounts to 20% of the earnings from the product price and printing price minus VAT. If you sell at least 26 products within one month, an additional Volume Commission can further increase your earnings.

You don’t need to do anything to receive the Affiliate Commission. Since most of our Shop Owners want to make money with selling designs, we’ve switched on the setting for you to receive the Affiliate Commission.

Deselect Affiliate Commission

If you don’t want to receive the Affiliate Commission (maybe because you run a non-profit Shop or you just want to dispense with earnings), you can opt out of receiving it. Choose the menu item Advanced Settings > Affiliate Commission, and untick the “Affiliate Commission" box. Please uncheck the box under “Receive Affiliate Commission”. This means that you will not receive any Volume Commission and that all products in Shops without Affiliate Commission will be 20% cheaper for your customers.

This is how your Affiliate Commission is calculated

The final price varies according to the country of delivery and that country’s VAT. This influences your earnings, shown with the following example for Germany, Norway and Sweden:

VAT in the country of delivery DE
Price Men’s T-shirt €13,99 €13,99 €13,99
+ Printing costs €4.50 €4.50 €4.50
= Final price (incl. VAT) €18,49 €18,49 €18,49
Final net price €15,54 €18,49 €14,79
Your Affiliate Commission €3,11 €3,70 €2,96
