As a seller on SoSoCreative, every time someone purchases one of your designs, you will earn a base commission of 10% of the retail price of the sale (regardless of any discounted or promotional price). So if a customer buys a 5' x 5' backdrop of your design on Vinyl Canvas Blend, which has a retail price of $74.99, you will earn a base commission of $7.50 -- even if that customer used a coupon for the purchase. This commission is added to your account paid out to your PayPal account.
Throughout each calendar month, there are sales thresholds you can meet to qualify for bonus commissions above the everyday 10% base commission. Sales are calculated from midnight Eastern time on the first of the month to 11:59pm on the last day of the month.
Retail sales between $2,000.00 and $3,999.99 (equivalent to $200.00 - $399.99 in base commissions) qualify for an extra 1% bonus for an 11% total commission Retail sales between $4,000.00 and $4,999.99 (equivalent to $400.00 - $499.99 in base commissions) qualify for an extra 3% bonus for a 13% total commission Retail sales above $5,000.00 (equivalent to $500.00+ in base commissions) qualify for an extra 5% bonus for a 15% total commission. Bonuses are paid by tier level ie. $1 - $1999 qualifies for 10% commission. Sales between $2000 and 3999.99 are paid 11% etc.
On the 8th of every month, any applicable bonus is retroactively calculated for the previous month’s earnings. The bonus is added to your account balance and is then paid out on the next payout date. On the 1st of each month, the calculation is reset and you receive the standard 10% commission until you reach one of the bonus thresholds again.
Your commissions are stored in your account and then is paid out to your PayPal account.
As of April 2017, commission payouts occur every 14 days, if your commission balance is greater than $10.00. When your commissions are paid out, you will receive an email from PayPal informing you they are available.
