New % Rates Now In Effect… and How To Become Exclusive!

The day has finally arrived! As of yesterday, all authors are eligible to earn 40% to 70% of any sale. To do so, authors simply need to sign on to the Envato Exclusivity Program.

What is “exclusivity”? It means that any items you are selling on an Envato Marketplace should only be sold here. You can still sell other items elsewhere, just not the same ones. That way the marketplaces stay unique and offer greater value to our buying community.

I’m Already Exclusive!

If you’ve been exclusive up till now, nothing will change, except in almost every case your rates will immediately jump up. That means not only more cash in your account every month, but also a higher future percentage to aim for. Click here to find out what your new percentage rate is.

I’m Not Exclusive but I Want To Be!

If you’re not already exclusive and wish to be, it’s super super simple! There are no minimum sales needed, so any author can agree to exclusivity immediately! Here’s how:

Step 1: Go to your Account page:

Step 2: Click the “Edit” tab:

Step 3: Click “Exclusivity of Your Items“:

Step 4: Read the terms and conditions. If you agree to the terms and conditions, tick the box below. Then click “Join The Envato Exclusivity Program“.

That’s all you need to do! You’ll now be earning at least 40% on every sale, effective immediately. As you sell more, that number will increase all the way up to 70%.

I Also Sell In Other Places!

If you sell on other sites (including your own) it’s easy to decide whether the exclusivity program makes financial sense. All you need to do is go to your account page and click the “Earnings” tab to see how much money you make with us currently. Next, see what percentage you would be earning if you became exclusive. If that percentage would deliver more cash then you’re earning across multiple sites you can sign up for exclusivity. All you need to do is ensure your content for sale is removed from any other sites and then follow the steps above.

If it doesn’t make sense, you can continue selling non-exclusively with Envato at the old 25% rates.

Enjoy The New Percentage Rates!

So here’s to better rates and a bigger and better marketplace in 2009! As always, if you have any questions drop a line to support who will be happy to help.
