Earning Money with Spreadshirt

Spreadshirt has two ways to earn your share of the industry’s biggest commission payout: become a Shop Owner, a Marketplace Designer or both!

  • Shop Owners handle their own traffic and marketing and can earn up to 60% commission on their sales.
  • Marketplace Designers benefit from Spreadshirt’s traffic and marketing and earn their design price with every sale.

Shop Owners: Three Ways to Earn

1. Affiliate Commission

Earn an Affiliate Commission equal to 20% of the print price + the product price for every product you sell in your Shop.

2. Design price

Add a design price to your product, and earn it in addition to the 20% Affiliate Commission for every product sold. You can set a design price of up to $20.

3. Volume Commission

Earn up to 40% of each sale with Spreadshirt’s Volume Commission. Volume Commission levels are based on the number of products sold in your Shop during a one-month campaign period.

Marketplace Designers: Decide What Your Work is Worth

As a Marketplace Designer, you decide what your designs are worth. Every time a customer purchases a product with one of your designs, you earn the amount you set. Your design price is calculated into the final sale price and credited to your account with each sale.

Showroom: Your designs take centre stage

The Showroom is all about you and your designs. Here, you can showcase the designs you have published on the Marketplace, just like you would in a gallery. Upload your own profile picture and cover image to give the Showroom a more personal touch. And add links to your social media channels. Tell your customers something about your designs to get them in the mood for checking them out.

Create-your-own area: Your designs add to a huge selection

Customers personalise their products of choice in the create-your-own area, e.g. with their own text, images or designs from Spreadshirt’s gallery. The gallery is home to a huge selection of free designs issued by Spreadshirt, as well as high-quality designs made available by Partners (like you) from all over the world. Whenever a customer chooses your design here, you make money with the design price. You don’t need to do anything to add your designs to the create-your-own gallery. Your designs are automatically added to the selection to ensure that customers have a great pool of designs to choose from when creating products.
