Title: COMING SOON: Cafepress to lower commissions again
Post by: KaptainMyke.com on 10/04/13 at 03:53:23
received an email tonight from cafepress, and it seems since I am a top performer and high volume sales, i've been grandfathered in to guarantee no less than 10% commissions for 1 full year. So I have 2 questions to that: what happens after a year, and how low is the commission going to be for everyone else? Cafepress is really doing it this time to each and everyone of us.

The posted the official announcement on the CP forums now: http://forums.cafepress.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/84310838/m/929106554

10% will be for anyone who keeps nominally active. Some of it includes the new profile and social stuff they added to the site. It can slide down to 5% for anyone who doesn't meet all the minimum requirements. They will also have ways to go higher, as high as 15%.

To stay at 10%, this is what they'll check that you have done at least once every 3 months:
Logged into your account.
Uploaded a design.
Kept your "profile" filled out and public.
"Follow" someone.
Be followed by someone.

No details yet on what can get you up over 10% yet.

This is all about MP sales though, so this activity stuff won't matter to our shops' pricing at any rate.

5% flat commission for fan portal based movie/tv properties, which is bullshit.   I hate Cafepress now.  I went from thousands to hundreds and now this.  Screw Cafepress.

Shops will still get full markup on them. So still got that anyway.
