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 personalized products. There are three ways you can earn money:
- The Design Price
- The Affiliate Commission
- The Volume Commission (calculated based on your sales volume)
The credit you accumulate by selling designs and products will be paid out to you according to our Terms and Conditions. More information about your payments can be found here.
We credit a Shop Owner’s account with the Affiliate Commission for every item sold. The Affiliate Commission amounts to 20% of the revenue. The revenue consists of the product price plus print price. If you sell at least 26 products within one month, you can increase your earnings with the Volume Commission.
You don’t need to do anything to receive the Affiliate Commission. Since most of our Shop Owners want to make money selling designs, we’ve made the Affiliate Commission automatic.
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 also 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.
Important: Your payment may be subject withholding taxes. More on this in the help article Taxation of your income.
