General information about setting up your store profile, selling your products and payment

This page provides our sellers with information about setting up their store and publishing their products. Please make sure to read the following information carefully.

Setting up your store profile

On your dashboard, navigate to “settings”. Fill in as much details as possible. Add a profile picture, header and write a small description about yourself.

Your store page will only be visible after you’ve uploaded and published at least one logo.

Payment

On your dashboard, navigate to “settings”, “Payment”. Select PayPal as payment method and fill in your PayPal email. We use this email to payout your share when you sell one of your logos.

Scale Branding aims to payout vendors within 14 days after the sale date. We only use PayPal to payout our vendors, and we use the email you provided in your payment settings. Your share will be paid in the same currency as it has been paid in by the customer.

When one of your logos gets sold, all of the (copy)rights of this logo will instantly be transferred to the customer.

Publish logos

There are a few steps we need sellers to follow when they upload a new product correctly. Our team manually checks every new upload to see if it matches all of the described steps.

01 - Product title

A good title helps your logo to be found better in search engines like Google. We recommend you to make your titles specific.

For example, “Bear Logo” is a very broad and common title. It has a lot of competition on Google, which makes it very hard for your logo to show up between all of the search results. Try to incorporate unique elements of your logo into your title. For example, “Cute blue bear logo”.

02 - Logo price

We only sell unique logos. Once a logo is sold, it is removed from the market completely. A low price may give the impression that we sell template logos. That is why we handle a minimum price of 200 US Dollar.

03 - Logo description

Just like a title, a good description helps your logo to be found better in search engines. Write a little “story” about your logo. Describe its use cases for example. Do not add tags or a lot of words devided by commas to this description! This will not give your logo a higher position in search engines and can even have a negative effect.

04 - Presentation image

Download our logo presentation mockup to create a presentation image for your logo. Make sure to take a good look at the rules and examples within the mockup. Upload your presentation image as JPEG file.

05 - Add product tags

Add logo tags that represent your product. Tags help your logo to be found in search engines. Tags will also be used to automatically categorize your logo on our website.

You can only add 10 tags to your product, so make sure to choose them carefully.

06 - ZIP file

Upload a ZIP file which includes (at least) PNG files and vector files of your logo.

07 - Send it for review

After you’ve completed every step, you may send your logo for approval.

Our staff will approve or decline your logo. In the case of your logo being declined, we will provide you with feedback on why your logo has been declined.

By publishing your logo, you agree to our Terms and Conditions.

Inquiries

Customers can contact you through the “Contact Designer” button on your store page. These messages are visible under the “Inquiries” tab on your store dashboard. Please try to answer their questions to the best of your knowledge. In case the customer asks a question about something you can not answer, feel free to reach out to us.

Custom order inquiry

Customers may send an inquiry for a custom logo order. Designers are free to take or reject these orders. In case you decide to take the order, you do this at your own risk.

Vendors are not allowed to share their own payment details with customers. When you and the client agree on a concept and you enter the payment & file transfer phase, you are obligated to upload the logo as a reguler product.

Make sure to add “Custom logo order” to your product title, and set the product visibility to hidden. Our staff will approve the logo. After the logo has been approved, you can share the product url with the client. This way we make sure the logo is only visible for those with access to the url, the files are protected and the client can use to all of our payment solutions.

Scalebranding handles the same percentages as described in our Payment section.

Taxes and invoices

As a seller you are most likely obligated to do tax return. This page explains how Scalebranding handles taxes over payment fees.
