Every time an item is sold on the PrestaCheap marketplace a percentage of the sale price goes to the author. The amount is determined by whether the author is selling the item only on the PrestaCheap marketplace and by how many sales they have had in the past.
Selling Exclusively: 55% – 70%
As an Author on the PrestaCheap marketplace you are eligible to receive between 55% and 70% of every sale should you choose to sell only items that are not sold elsewhere. Being an exclusive author simply means that any items you sell on an PrestaCheap marketplace are unique to our libraries.
You are entitled to sell other items elsewhere, but not the same ones. This helps keep the marketplaces healthy and unique, and ensures buyers aren’t just browsing through items they could get anywhere. So to sum up:
|You CAN sell other items on other sites, including your own.|
|You CANNOT sell the same items elsewhere.|
New authors begin at the 50% level and as sales volume adds up, so does the commission percentage. That means the more you sell, the more you earn!
You can see a breakdown of how the percentages change with sales volume in the table below.

Selling Non-Exclusively: 50%
If you are choosing to sell the same content as you are selling on another marketplace or on your own site then you fall into the non-exclusive group. Non-exclusive authors receive 50% of each sale they make on the PrestaCheap marketplace.
Additional Earnings (Referral Program): 30%
Whether Exclusive or Non-Exclusive, you can refer new users to any of the PrestaCheap marketplace and you’ll receive an additional 30% of their first purchase or cash deposit!
