Effective December 10th, Creative Market's Commission will increase from 30% to 40%, and Certified products will no longer have a different Commission from non-Certified products.

Enjoy!

Hehe... corporate crap is fascinating. How they always try to make it sound like a good thing for consumers/contributors when things are actually getting worse.

I've been around long enough to see corporate greed ruin a few microstock sites... iStock for instance, that started out as a pretty nice place. But after a few years you weren't really allowed to post anything in the forums and bit by bit we were pushed down to 15% royalties, if I remember correctly...

I guess it will be the same thing at Creative Market eventually.

At least Alamy made an attempt to justify their increase. CM's approach comes across as a pure screw-you contributors money grab.

The usual BS that passes for caring for our contributors.

I enjoy it. The bigger part of my income there is from Certified images and in this case I'll have positive balance from the change.I think the clients likes "Certified", I had a case when a client forced me to certify an image in order to buy EL, I tried to explain that Certified or not this is the same quality image, but no, she insisted to be Certified lol

Stop selling there and don't put up with this money grab. Their prices are terrible anyway.

You say it's "money grab" when they give you 60% commission, waw

About the prices, you place your prices. I'm not sure you've been ever seen the CMs website.

I really dislike their tax practices. This makes me upset too but they are not a big earner for me.

It is still the agency with the best percentage paid to us. The fault of these things is ours for swallowing commissions of 15% such as istock or download all you want for 11.99 like canva... but crying for an agency to cut 70% to 60%

True, you can set your own prices, but there's no minimum price so you're directly competing with contributors dumping their stuff for very low prices.

And 60% commission or not, increasing their slice of the pie without any justification is still a money grab, no matter how you spin it.
