How are template royalties calculated?

You can start making money on PosterMyWall easily. If you haven’t set up your designer account, read this guide

Every time a customer purchases your templates, you'll receive royalties (the rate varies for different download types). 

Add your PayPal account details under the Royalty Payments section on the Edit profile page. Royalties are paid via PayPal only.

Royalties from standard purchases

Please note, the following rates are applicable to designers who've signed up after June 17, 2019

Product You Receive
Standard image/print quality image $1.05
High-res image/poster quality image $2.80
HD design with stock video $1.00
HD design with your video $2.00

If you choose to upload a video for your video template, you'll earn $1 more than if you use stock videos. However, using stock videos can make your job much easier because of the huge library of stock videos available on PosterMyWall. 

This breakdown of royalties is earned from free accounts only. 

Royalties from Premium purchases

Royalties from PosterMyWall Premium subscribers are calculated at the end of each month. A portion of the monthly subscription price is divided among all designers whose templates have been downloaded by the subscriber. This is added to the total amount earned by each designer. 

See the Premium purchases section under the Earnings tab to find the date when pending Premium royalties will be sent out (more details on the ‘Earnings’ tab below). 

Royalties vary based on the number of templates and the type of templates (image or video) used by the Premium subscriber. When dividing subscriber royalties:

  • Image designs count as 1 use.
  • Designs with a stock video are treated as 1.5 uses
  • Designs with a video uploaded by artists are treated as 2 uses. 

Designers may experience a reduction in royalties from standard purchases in the following cases: 

Localized prices

PosterMyWall offers localized prices for Mexico, India and other countries. To meet the purchasing power of customers in their respective countries, the prices for individual downloads and subscription plans are discounted. This means royalties from standard sales and Premium purchases for localized prices may differ.  

Discounted prices  

Downloads made with discount promo codes will generate royalties proportional to the discounted price.  

For example, if a customer buys a high-res download using a 50% discount code, the royalties earned from that purchase will be $1.40, instead of the usual $2.80.  

Similarly, royalties from Premium purchases will be adjusted based on the discounted price of the subscription.
