About the Threadless Marketplace
Your Artist Shop has the option to allow your shop's products to be considered for the Threadless Marketplace.
You can find this option in the Settings section of your Artist Dashboard. Toggle the Allow my shop’s products to be considered in the Threadless Marketplace setting to ON if you'd like your products to be considered for the Threadless marketplace. To remove your Shop from the Threadless Marketplace, toggle to OFF and hit Save. The +Follow button will be also be removed from your Artist Shop. Changes may take up to four hours to go into effect.
Designs in the Marketplace
Opting into the marketplace does not guarantee your designs will be included in the Threadless catalog. Designs in the Marketplace are curated for Threadless customers. Selected designs have been curated and prioritized to fit Threadless customers' browsing and purchasing preferences. If your shop is opted into the Marketplace and any of your designs are selected, your shop's products may then be included in the Threadless catalog with pricing managed by Threadless, discoverable in the Threadless search, and possibly even featured in Threadless sale and promotion emails and social media communications or the homepage. By default, Artist Shops are automatically opted into the Marketplace, which means any of the shop's products are eligible to be selected.
While each Artist Shop is separate from the Threadless catalog, some or all of your designs may or may not be included in the Threadless marketplace and search. Inclusion into the Threadless marketplace and Threadless search depends on a combination of design quality and commercial viability for the Threadless market, marketplace and Artist Shop sales and activity, product tagging, and search relevancy.
The Threadless Design challenges are a great way to share and highlight designs and have them considered for the Marketplace. You can find more information and submit to the ongoing Design Challenge and theme challenges from our Design Challenge page.
Threadless Marketplace Earnings
When the Threadless Marketplace setting is activated, the Threadless Marketplace Base Fee is applied to any Threadless Marketplace purchases of your designs. Pricing and promotions are set by Threadless.
