2. Commission

2.1 General commission

The commission is 75% – $0.50 (base fee). The base fee is deducted from the final selling price on each sale. Our commission structure is set to support higher priced products as the payment provider fees tend to play a huge role in low priced sales.

Here’s a table describing how the commission structure works with different product prices:

Product priceCommission (75%)Base fee ($0.50)Your earningsFinal commission

2.1.2 Affiliate Referral Impact to Commission

When there is an affiliate referral on the order, the affiliate gets 50% of the order value and the rest 50% is split between Crella and the seller(s). The commission in these cases is 25% instead of the regular commission of 75% – $0.50.

2.2 Crella Subscription commission

On a regular subscription payment, a commission shared with the sellers is 50% of the total monthly subscription price. On subscription payment where an affiliate is a referrer, the affiliate gets 50% affiliate commission of the ongoing subscription price and we split the rest 50% on 50/50 basis with sellers. Payment per seller is calculated by monthly subscription downloads of their products.

For example, $1,000 in monthly subscription payments and $200 paid to affiliates from that $1,000, generates a 50% * ($1,000 – $200) = 50% * $800 = $400 total commission pool for sellers.

The commission to Crella sellers is calculated by their overall monthly subscription downloads divided by overall total Crella Subscription downloads in the particular month. For example, a seller with 1,000 downloads would get 2% of the total commission pool if there would be a total of 50,000 Crella Subscription downloads in that particular month.

2.3 Coupon Code Affect on Commission

If the user has a coupon code, it won’t affect the seller commission. The commission will be calculated from the order value before the coupon has been applied. For example, a $10 sale with a 10% coupon code equals to $9 order value, but the seller gets a commission of the $10.

3. Deal Terms

On all deals, your final commission is calculated from the final selling price. For example, if the product’s normal price is set to $20.00 and the final sale price is $10.00, your commission will be calculated from the $10.00.

You’re able to set these types of deals,

  • Stock limited (offer a certain number of items only for a specific price. For example, 100 pieces for $5 when a normal price is $10)
  • Time limited (allow sale to run for specific days only)

3.1 Stock Limited

After a product has been sold out and you haven’t made it available again, we’ve will manually bring it back up to its normal price. This might take 24-48 hours on a formal business day. If you’ve drafted the product, then we won’t bring it back up.

3.2 Time Limited

After you’ve set you sale price, you can add a time-limit on it by clicking “schedule”. The product page displays a time stamp when the deal will be over. This is great for social media sales for example.

4. Successful Deals

You can create stock or time-limited deals on Crella. These deals make it easier for our customers to get to know your products. We also do a lot of extra promotion for these products outside the marketplace to our existing user bases. This is a great way to boost your earnings.

4.1 What to consider for a successful deal

This is what we consider as a great deal on Crella,

  • Stock limited (more info in 4.2)
  • 50% – 99% off from the original price
  • Price it under $10 ($1.00-$9.99). Lower price means faster sales and these are much easier for us to promote outside the marketplace.

Need help? If you’re unsure of what type of deals you should create, just contact us and we’ll suggest which of your products we would like to see in Crella.

4.2 Guideline for stock limitations:

This is a just a basic guideline for what sort of stock limitation we would like to see on Crella. Feel free to be creative as we also consider product quality and sale price as factors when we handpick.
