As soon as your models are shipped, you can sell them in our gallery. They show up in your profile under gallery items (1) . Click the edit button (2) to fill in the title of your design, add a description, assign it to a category, add tags and add a picture.
The next step is to offer your design for sale. First make sure that all your information is correct (1-4). Then select the offer for sale option (5) and enter your desired designer’s fee (6). The designer’s fee will determine how much you will earn with each sale.
You’re all set! As soon as an item is sold, it shows up in your sales. You can start promoting your models by posting links to your designer page that holds yout models Once a month we will pay you through PayPal (setting up a PayPal account is free and easy). This applies to all items that were shipped to their buyers. Your payment becomes accrued 15 days after the order has been shipped. Finally, on the 15th of the month, or the first working day after the 15th, you will be paid.
Remember that your public profile is the best way to self-advertise your items by sharing your new shop through the available social networks. A good example of a well managed profile is that of designer Fung Kwok Pan. Kwok Pan’s profile embodies the i.materialise philosophy to put designers up front. His profile shows his name (1), a picture (2) instead of a logo or a graphic, a nice description (3) and a fully completed about me (4) section.
