LogoGround Commission Structure

Announcement, 2019-01-28
LogoGround Commission

After much discussion, both internally and with several of you, we have decided to change the LogoGround commission structure. You will now receive 90% of the money generated from your sales. LogoGround will pay the initial PayPal processing fee of ±3.5% and the remainder becomes our share.

Effectively you will receive 6.5% less than in the past.

The change comes into effect on March 1, 2019 and will be applied to all sales generated on or after that date.

Why this change became necessary

For the past four years we paid you 100% of the money you earned on LogoGround. We loved every minute of it. The idea was that we would make money only from abandoned projects. Namely, if a logo sells and the designer does not respond to the client, we do the work and we take a cut from that sale. But this is a flawed business model. In order for LogoGround to survive, you had to fail, and fail often. Despite this we worked hard to reduce abandoned projects by making sure sale notifications are delivered to your inbox, reliably. We did a good job. Abandoned projects are now far too rare to support the site.

Our options were clear: Close LogoGround (yeah right!), sabotage sale notifications (yeah right!) or find another way to fund LogoGround.

We considered many alternatives including advertising, affiliate links, donations, Patreon, custom logos and charging designers a monthly or per-upload fee. We also considered a sliding scale for commissions.

In the end we are convinced that a small, universal commission on all sales is the most transparent and fair solution.
