If you haven't yet, please see the announcement here:
https://www.logoground.com/commission.php

It's an announcement that we have been putting off for months. We loved paying 100% of profits to designers and would have preferred to keep doing that. But the money we make from our own logo sales and from the occasional abandoned project does not justify the long hours we spend reviewing logos, answering emails, kung-fu-ing bad guys and working on the further development of the site. Our parent company has kindly been funding the operation of LogoGround, but like any site, LogoGround must eventually turn a profit or go the way of the dodo. Reality has come knocking.

I spoke to many people, including several of you. There was a fairly clear consensus: A small, universal commission on all sales is simple, fair and it allows us to continue focusing on our primary job: Making LogoGround a place that makes money for designers.

Thank you to everyone who helped us map the way forward.

If you have questions or comments, please post them below!

LG cut will be 10% which includes the initial paypal fees, it makes sense and it is expected for the business to go on.
I just hope that the universal cut will enable LG to expand more and attract much more buyers.

I sign for 10%, although we paid something like that because we already had a double (!) Paypal cut. Can the LG staff confirm whether we now have only one Paypal cut (instead of 2x). Because otherwise the effective cut for designers is not 10% but a lot more.

Incidentally, other stocklogo websites asked about 40-30% commission. Something that in my experience is ridiculously high for the amount of work you have had to create the logo, upload, promote, customize, etc.

I have to say that I kinda saw this coming and wasn't against it. With few sites closing down and designers coming to LG that became more open for other designers with policy change about selling on other sites I thought that LG will have way more job then before and 100% of the price will be hard to maintain. So 10% is more then fine, but I think priority #1 on to do list should now be a double paypal fee, with that gone we can split the one fee between designers and logoground, so we will have few more bucks and LG will have few more bucks.

DESIGNER
Gregory M
2019-01-29

The problem is we are already operating near the range of profitability. Stocklogos went down with a much larger amount of logos on offer, the recent rally is a fallout of that. People flock here because it offers profitability, which stops people from looking elsewhere as it is simply not worth uploading 200 logos for a small chance of 2/3rd of a sale. Putting up a fee is dispelling that and also worries as to what will it rise later on. The stocklogos fees rose until they closed shop because that rise most often just means the designers will have to make the prices higher to offset it. This is a highly automated system, we are all aware of that, even the policing and review in its majority done for free by designers. As such you cant expect much in terms of profits. Agregation and crosspromotion the in house designs get from eyes the overall designer base draws is a form of profit.

For me this comes at the most unfortunate time, average small business in Poland pays roughly ~45% in upfront profit taxes and then taxes on goods, services and imports. This hike puts the percentage firmly above 50%. And thats a lot. With incoming debt payments which i have to take because i dont have enough savings to buy what i need to buy to move forward with my life things have gotten definitely darker in the near future as a worse month will hurt more.

DESIGNER
aefirit
2019-01-29

Mate, @Gregory I think 10% is a very small commission, personally I think LG deserves it, (even more). The services hardly work for free, and LG did it as far as it could (I think that no page in the world had done something like that). I believe that their work deserves a part of our earnings, because they give us much more than they receive in return.

I understand that the decision will affect more to some people, but this is not their fault. Every worker, company or business charge for their work, you charge for yours, you don't do it for free. There is no reason for us to expect others to work for us for nothing in return. This is work. It is the cost for a good service. People pay more than that for other things that do not generate money. Has anyone worried about the problems that LogoGround may be facing? I don't think that a slight adjustment in prices will make this page fall. Fiverr for example has grown a lot in recent years and they charge 20% commission for a long time (maybe from the beginning).

It is also important to mention that there are few serious pages dedicated to the sale of logos with professional quality. Some other pages have closed, and this means less competition, and fewer places where people can buy good quality logos. In addition, from my perspective, clients have few options:

* Pay for a branding service in your country (professional services are expensive, exceed thousands of dollars).

* Pay for contests an average of $ 180-350 and not knowing if they will receive an ideal proposal.

* Pay for a branding service on the internet (which are expensive and vary according to the designer)

* Buy predesigned logos on pages like LogoGround. Currently, LogoGround is one of the best. (one of the most viable and affordable options)

For the aforementioned, I don't think that this page is going to fail. :)

In the Commission text:
https://www.logoground.com/commission.php

LogoGround specify the following in one of the lines:

"LogoGround will pay the INITIAL PayPal processing fee of ±3.5% and the remainder becomes our share."

So, I guess they will cover only the first commission corresponding to the first transaction (client transfer to LogoGround), then I guess the fee for the second transfer (Transfer from LogoGround account to designer account) will be cover by us :) so it will be a shared payment of the fee. If I'm right, then our gains will be ±86,5%. The most of the sites charge at least 15%, so I keep thinking is more than reasonable and fair :D

@ajleroux, can you please confirm that information?

Guys, the link https://www.logoground.com/commission.php states clearly in the slide percentage that LG will only take 6.5% + 3.5% payapl fees which results in the %10 cut. So clearly we wont be payiong the initial payapal fee that happens when client purchase the logo from you. We will only pay the fees when we transfer the money from LG to Paypal.
LG even states it clearly in the green text that:
Effectively you will receive 6.5% less than in the past.
which again confirms that LG wont take the whole 10% but only 6.5%



DESIGNER

No problem for me. But I think it is time for LG to increase minimum price to USD 200

The payment process in LogoGround is currently the following:

* Payment 1: Transfer of the client to LogoGround.
PayPal commission by transfer: ±3.5%

* Payment 2: Transfer of LogoGround to our PayPal account.
PayPal commission by transfer: ±3.5%

So it is important to mention that previously we were receiving ±7% less corresponding to the two PayPal commissions of the two payments, although we receive approximately 15% less (we are waiting to confirm this), LogoGround will only receive ±6.5%

So, yeah... All these previous years we have been giving pizzas to PayPal :'( In fact, PayPal will continue to have a higher percentage of profit than LogoGround.

It was about time !!
As a comparison 99designs used to take 60% of stock logo sales.
3.5% its more than generous and very transparent. I lost 2 projects because of failed email system and I think its alot better to take a commission upfront because logoground deserves to earn, even though you guys keep the site up because you love and support the community of designers and you understand the struggles of freelance designers.
I salute your choice !

Ortega Graphics
2019-01-29

Hello,

I fully support this new commission structure. LogoGround staff definitely deserves to be compensated for their hard work.

But, like others have said above, I think that PayPal should get less of our money.

As we all know, currently, PayPal gets almost exactly 7% of a logo sale; this is because, as we know, PayPal takes a fee of almost exactly 3.5% twice (once during the client→LG transaction and once during the LG→designer transaction). So, currently, designers get almost exactly 93% of a logo sale.

As discussed in the past, using PayPal Adaptive Payments will allow LogoGround to act as a middleman; then a delayed payment can be setup and PayPal will only take the fee once. Here's the link once again:
https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/products/adaptive-payments/

If PayPal Adaptive Payments are not implemented by March 1st, as far as I can tell, the 90% allocated to designers will effectively be 86.5% because of the second PayPal fee (during the LG→designer transaction).

If PayPal Adaptive Payments are implemented by March 1st, the 90% allocated to designers will be exactly 90% because PayPal will only take the fee once.

I really hope that PayPal Adaptive Payments can be implemented in the following month or so.

Thank you,

Ortega Graphics

@eclipse42, with PayPal Mass Payments the fee is charged to the sender; this doesn't solve the double-fee problem completely.
https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/what-are-the-fees-for-mass-payments-faq3096

But, as you said, the fees are smaller, depending on several factors, the fee is between $0.25 and 2% (with a maximum of $20.00 USD).
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/merchant-fees#paypal-payouts

So, yes, PayPal Mass Payments could be a partial solution if for some reason PayPal Adaptive Payments can't be implemented.

ADMIN

Many thanks everyone for the feedback and kind comments!

Designers no longer pay a double PayPal fee. MonGE Designs is correct, LogoGround pays the initial fee (when the buyer pays us) and you pay the second fee (when we pay you). PayPal charges each of us when we receive money in our PayPal accounts, which isn't unreasonable. Still, it is essentially one transaction and we would love to implement adaptive payments. PayPal states that adaptive payments are "restricted to select partners for approved use cases". Until we get approval from PayPal we will continue to pay 3.5% for the initial transaction.

PayPal mass payments are planned for the near future. Adaptive payments (if implemented) would remove the initial transaction fee. Mass payments would reduce the second fee to just 2%, so we want to proceed with mass payments even if adaptive payments aren't possible. We are working on this right now.

Businesslogo, yes, it will now be possible for us to invest more time in LogoGround, meaning an increase in the speed with which we expand and improve LogoGround :)

Gregory M, the cost is primarily in time. We automate as much as possible and we receive extremely valuable help from the community, but managing LogoGround became a full-time job a few years ago. Every month there are more emails to answer, more logos to review, more copyright reports etc. Not counting development work, the day-to-day workload more or less doubles each year. At the same time, our efforts to reduce abandoned projects have been very successful. A commission solves the problem by correlating our income with our workload, allowing us to pay the people who make LogoGround work and to add more people when it becomes necessary.

Kristina2912, having more than one payment method brings significant technical and operational challenges. We like Payoneer and have some ideas of how it can be added, but we can't promise anything.

hi... sorry, can someone tell me about :

Your Avg Price:
$850
LG Avg Price:
$277

What does it mean?

Thank you in advance!



DESIGNER
Ortega Graphics
2019-02-02

Normally, an average is a number that represents a group of numbers in a simplified manner. Often, the arithmetic mean is used; that is, the sum of all numbers in a group divided by the count of the numbers in said group.

In the case of the logos in your portfolio, to find the average, the LogoGround system simply added the two prices (you have two logos) and then divided by two. In this case, $700 + $1000 = $1700, then $1700 / 2 = $850, therefore, $850 is your average logo price.

In the case of logo prices in the entire LogoGround store, to find the average, the LogoGround system simply added the prices of all fifty two thousand logos and then divided by fifty two thousand. In that case, the final result was $277, therefore, $277 is the average logo price for all logos in LogoGround.

Hope this helps,

Ortega Graphics

We receive our share of fraudulent orders, but we have a good system here for preventing fraud and handling the ones that slip through so that the bad guys don't get away with it. And credit to PayPal as well. They do a good job on their end and they treat us fairly.

LogoGround isn't going away! My grand kids and yours will chat on this forum long after we are gone :)

Hello @LogoGround,

I'm all for a commission for you guys!

I just have a question regarding our future earnings. When you say we will receive 90% of our earnings, does that mean that those 90% are still undergoing a fee by paypal before it goes to our bank account, or? Please clarify, because at the moment we receive around 93% of our earning onLogoGround (because of the double fee)... if so, those additional 3-4% make no noticeable change.

LogoGround has been a huge stepping stone in my work as a logo designer and I think I speak for all of us if I say that it's time to give back to the site that provided us with the best platform to sell our work easily and safely.

Thank you LogoGround, in my mind I considered you guys as friends for a long time!

Hi mc design,

Many thanks for the kind words! It's awesome for us to hear that brilliant designers are happy at LogoGround. That has always been our aim!

The double PayPal fee isn't sorted out yet, but you will no longer pay the double fee. LogoGround pays the initial PayPal fee, when the buyer pays us. You pay only the second fee that PayPal charges you when we pay you. Effectively you will receive 6.5% less than in the past.

We are working on implementing PayPal mass payments which will more or less halve your payment to PayPal.

Hi @ajleroux,

I got the payment and noticed that PayPal has charged a double fee. I sold the logo for $500 and I received $425,40 USD. I just want to check if everything is fine.

Thank you.

Hi Citronneo,

The double fee issue isn't resolved, but we pay one and you pay one. So we took 10% and paid the first fee, you received 90% ($450) from us and then PayPal deducted the fee that they normally deduct when you receive funds in your account.

@ajleroux,


After the implementation of the LogoGround commission, I suggest to everybody that we could need a more flexible logo pricing mechanism.
What I mean by that is to simply allow us to charge a more precise price for our work. At the moment, after the 400 USD mark, we can increase the prices of our logos by 100 USD, which I think is a big jump. Many times a customer would contact me asking for a discount, and a 100 USD discount is in many cases just to much. If you could enable us to raise the prices of our work by 50 USD, I think that would make a difference. In many cases those 50 USD would take care of the double paypal fee and the recent LogoGround commission (which I really understand and support) as well.

I hope this makes sense not only for me.

Thank you

I agree with @mc design. Also could you inform us about paypal mass payments implementation as you mentioned earlier on some forum post that you guys are working on it. Thanks.

@mc From feedback from my clients i gather that they all appreciate simplicity of the process of purchasing a logo. I get that everyone has a brand new cool idea of what could be added or changed but we should keep the site as simple as possible. Instead of offering a discount try to advertise your product to the client instead, i had sold few logos in full price that way even tho a client started asking for a discount. I convinced said client that the design is worth its price and the client was happy to buy.



DESIGNER

@mc design, that's a good proposal. I don't think 50 USD price increments would be a problem for anyone, so I don't see a downside to this solution...



DESIGNER

@Ortega Graphics, I don't think he meant that there should be a discount implemented into the purchase process, just that there could be a middle price between 400 and 500 USD and I agree, 450 should be good middle and compensation for the percentage to LG. I think if someone is willing to pay 400, an increase of 50 USD won't hurt much. Also if someone wants a logo for lower price, designers won't be forced to lower to 400 from 500, but lower to 450. Those who can pay more than 500 USD for a logo don't ask for discount I think :)



DESIGNER

Yeah, I don't mean to complicate the pricing system, just to add more pricing options. Instead of going from 400 to 500, 600, 700 etc. I propose to add 450, 550 ,650 etc. price, so we would have more wiggle room, because sometimes we want to lower the price for a client, or simply increase the price slightly, because of the paypal double fee and lg commission ...
I feel that the 100 USD jump in price making is just not flexible enough, that's all I'm saying.

I haven't seen such a fair commission which you guys are keeping from the designer's sale. Infect this is the only platform where most of the options are in designer's favor. All we wish for this great website to live forever and keep continuing the maintenance, improvement and bring more and more buyer's traffic to this website so we can keep selling more and more logos :)

a good concept, bringing together designers and people who need design, for me personally this is a great opportunity for me a designer, with a fair system in the distribution of commissions
