Creative Market is a well-known term among designers and digital business owners for its large collection of great design assets, ranging from illustrations to icons, and more. However, since I started my journey on the Creative Market store two years ago, a lot has changed.
To be honest, the biggest issue so far has been the commissions. Creative Market takes 50% of your sales, and when you factor in taxes, you end up with only 20-30% of your earnings. It can be tough to see such a small portion in the end. My suggestion would be not to focus too much on the analytics, as it may lead to disappointment. Hopefully, someone from the Creative Market team will read this and consider reducing the commissions or finding alternative ways to generate revenue instead of solely relying on creators.
Now let's talk about my revenue stream as a Design Contributor on Creative Market:
Revenue for 2023:
Total Revenue: $502 (+22%)
Total earnings: $173 (+7%)
Products sold: 34 (+36%)
