How do Artist Earnings work?
Calculating Artist Earnings
Retail Price - Base Cost = Your Artist Earnings
Each Artist Shop product has a Base Cost, which covers production and logistical costs. For your Earnings, subtract the Base Cost from the Retail Price that you set and you keep the difference as Artist Earnings.
Find the full outline of base costs for Threadless, Artist Shop, and Threadless Marketplace earnings in the Policy Concerning Payments to Artists and Artist Shop Owners section of the Terms & Conditions. The Base Fee varies based on whether an item is sold on Artist Shops, Threadless, or the Threadless Marketplace.

Artist Earnings Details
Artist Earnings are separated into 3 sections:
If not returned or canceled during the 15 days 'Pending', the sale will move to Cleared Earnings. Any Cleared Earnings will be paid out in the next Artist Earnings monthly payment.
Orders With No Earnings
There may be some orders in your Artist Dashboard that show no earnings at all! These are most likely an exchange for a previous order or a replacement for a lost shipment. Since we provide replacements and exchanges to no cost to you or your customers, there won't be any additional earnings for these orders and they are completed at the base cost. If you have any questions about any orders feel free to contact us and we can clarify!
