How Marketplace works for Creators

The Marketplace allows creators to create and share templates in a simple and scalable way and get paid for selling them. It's also a new source of clients for your services.

Creators automatically receive credits for each purchase of a paid template to their Stripe account, less TaxDome and Stripe fees. TaxDome charges a 27% commission on the template price, while Stripe charges 2.9% + $0.3, so creators receive 70%.

When selling templates, addressing tax matters becomes important. To simplify this process, you can activate Stripe Tax for automatic tax calculation and collection. Additionally, customize your Stripe Tax form settings.

Before you start

To proceed with selling your templates on our Marketplace, ensure the following:

  • You are a firm owner or an employee with Manage marketplace access rights.
  • Stripe is connected to your TaxDome account.
  • You have a paid TaxDome subscription (selling templates from Marketplace is not possible for trial users).
  • You created a template in your TaxDome firm and want to list it in a Marketplace.

Registering as a Creator

To become a Creator, you need to complete the registration form. To open it, go to Templates > Marketplace and click the List your templates link to the right.

Processing your application takes up to two working days. Once approved, you will receive a notification via email.

Listing templates

Once you've been approved as a creator, you can add your templates. 

Go to  Templates > Creator hub from the left menu bar, click New listing and follow the steps below:

1. In the Category section, choose a template category from the drop-down, then select a template from your library in the Template section.

3. Add multimedia content to be shown on the template page and promote your listing. This will help the users to understand if they need it. 

In the Video section, insert a video link from YouTube, Vimeo, Loom or Google Drive and click Add video. Then, click Browse Files and select photos to be added, or simply drag & drop them to the field under the Photos section.

4. Choose your pricing:

  • Free to use: Select this option to offer your template at no cost.
  • Set your price: Type in your price in the Price field to see how much you will earn as net of TaxDome and Stripe fees.

Formats allowed for uploading: png, jpeg. The file's size should be at least 64 x 64 (128 x 128 recommended).
