Q: Do I retain the rights to my own file?
A: Yes, it’s your file. We just provide a venue to sell it.

Q: Can my payment rate ever go down?
A: Nope, your rate will never go down, regardless of sales volume.

Q: Are files reviewed or will you accept anything?
A: Each file goes through a rigorous reviewing process to make sure the quality is top notch.

Q: I don’t want to have my files sold with the extended license. Can I opt out?
A: Yes, but there are definite advantages to opting in.

Q: Who is responsible for copyright violations in files I’ve submitted?
A: As the author, it’s your responsibility to make sure you’re not violating anyone’s copyright by uploading your file. If you’re unsure if you’re allowed to use an asset within your file, ask the asset’s owner or a lawyer.

Q: Who determines the price of my file?
A: To keep the marketplaces consistent and prevent undercutting, all files are priced by Marketplace staff.

A: Providing support is a great way to ensure repeat business from buyers, but no, it’s not required unless the file is actually broken.

Q: What do you do to keep categories from becoming oversaturated?
A: If a category is oversaturated, that just means the quality standards go up. You’ll have to give it a unique spin or make it much nicer looking for it to be approved.
