If you’ve been following the blog here, you would know that Pixel Oak recently announced that it will also be selling digital products on Creative Market. It’s been a great experience so far and I’d like to highlight some things I really like about this marketplace.
1. Great Commission Rate
Creative Market as far as I can tell has the best commission rate for sellers out of the markets that are currently out there. It also pays the credit card processing fees on it’s side and doesn’t tack this fee to your commission, pretty nice.
2. Flexible Pricing
In contrast to alot of other marketplaces, Creative Market let’s you set your own prices and you can also change them at will. Creating and managing promotions is much simpler and quicker this way.
3. No Exclusivity Lock-In
At Creative Market there is no exclusivity lock-in. Want to publish your items on other markets? No problem, you’re not going to take a hit on your commission. I personally hope this is a policy that will be adopted by other markets in the future, it really makes things simple and easy.
4. Instant Publishing & Editing
Publishing items on Creative Market is an instantaneous process, there’s is no review and approval process. This is really nice for sellers who want to move fast and want to time their releases.
Between it’s SimpleLicence and commission rate, Creative Market has opted to make things really simple and understandable for sellers which I believe will be a market differentiator for them. As more and more sellers jump on board I believe this method of working with sellers will be a no-brainer.
If you are thinking about jumping into selling digital design assets I would highly encourage you to check out Creative Market. It’s a young marketplace that has a creative’s first attitude that I believe will set it apart from other sellers.
