Affiliate Commission

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

We credit a Shop Owner’s account with the Affiliate Commission for every item sold. The Affiliate Commission amounts to 20% of the revenue consisting of product price plus print 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 Edit Shop > Advanced Settings > Shop Overview, and untick the “Apply 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.
