CGTrader: Show me the money!

CGTrader is a new site that provides artists with 100% royalties from the sales of their items - yeah, that's right... 100%. Now, you may think there's a catch (isn't there always?) but all you need to do is "rent a space" for your item to go in the marketplace which is a one time fee. Sounds like a pretty fair deal to me.

How CGTrader works:

  • Connect CGTrader with your Paypal account
  • Upload a 3D model to your CGTrader account
  • It stays published until someone buys it
  • When it is sold for the first time, you get 100%
  • Then you need to assign Onetime or Annual slot for it

By choosing to sell on CGTrader, you also get to enjoy other benefits such as:

  • No IRS taxes or tricky ITIN forms
  • No payment delays – receive royalties instantly
  • All earnings go directly into your Paypal account
  • No exclusivity requirements

Has anyone had an experience with this site yet? I'd be very interested to know how it went. Now go forth Polycounters and make that cash, then buy some Polycount swag - it's worth it.

Here's a link to the official CGTrader website just in case you missed it.
