Click Join Now and from the email you receive click Become a Seller, upload a few designs for us to review. Once you’ve been OK’d, head over to your profile page and Upload a Design to get started.
Before you start uploading you should read our Seller FAQs which contains information on format and size etc. Once uploaded, your design will be held in a moderation queue for one of our team to check.
Allocation – Standard/Extended or Premium
We have two areas of the site where your design could be sold – the Stock studio and the Premium studio. During the upload process you can specify where you think your design should be displayed, but please note that The Patternbank Team make the final decision.
Standard/Extended studio (non-exclusive license)
Your design can be sold multiple times under a non-exclusive license. The design cannot be sold or be for sale anywhere else. We ask that all the designs on Patternbank are exclusive to Patternbank, but that does not stop you from selling other designs elsewhere. See our Sellers License Agreement.
Premium studio (one-off exclusive license)
Designs are sold with a one-off exclusive license at a higher price point and once purchased the design is instantly removed from the site. Premium designs need to be completely production-ready ie: in repeat (where applicable), colour separated with layered PSD or AI, etc. Premium designs need to be exclusive to the buyer and all elements must be original. Please make sure when you are designing that your Premium designs must be very different from any other designs - Standard or Premium. The design cannot be sold or be for sale anywhere else. All Premiums designs should be completely original and contain no duplicate imagery, elements or drawings. Once a Premium design is purchased by the buyer they own exclusive rights to the design. See our Sellers License Agreement.
Please use your own unique artwork elements to build your patterns. Designs must be your own work and can not include copyrighted images or elements (Stock elements, artists work, 3rd party imagery found online, etc - see our T&Cs). Design uploaded to Patternbank needs to be created by you. Please do not upload designs that were not created by you, Strictly no reproduction or use of copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise protected material is permitted on the Patternbank studio. Designers that break our seller T&Cs will be instantly removed from the studio. See our Sellers License Agreement.
Commission and Payment
The designer receives 50% commission on all sales made through the site and we even pick up all the PayPal fees. We occasionally give out coupon codes for promotions and marketing. You will be able to track sales in the ‘Transactions’ & 'Statements' parts of your profile page. From the 26th September 2017, we will be implementing a monthly designer payout system. The payment cycle for Patternbank designers will then be on a monthly basis. Designer sales & payments owed are calculated at the end of every month and paid out via designers linked Paypal accounts on or around the 28th of the month. Again more info here at our Seller FAQs
