The image file name will now appear in place of “No file chosen”.

Click the Upload button.

 Seller Upload

Note: To maximize your sales potential, ensure that your images are large enough to cover the case area of the majority of the phone cases.  1500px Height x 1500px Width should cover most cases completely.  

Set Thumbnail: A pop-up screen will appear with the uploaded image in it.  Set the Thumbnail that will appear in our image catalog.  This will be the first impression customers will have of your artwork image, so make sure the thumbnail captures the essence of the image.

Step 2: Set Phones

This screen allows you to select which phone models you would like your design to apply to.

Select All if you wish to make the image available for all current case models.

Note: If your image does not meet the dimension size requirements of a case, you will be unable to select the option box for that specific model. 

Apply to future models:  Ensure you have this option box selected if you want your image to be applied to future products which are an appropriate size for the image.

 

Step 3:  Set Information and Commission Rate 

This screen is where you can modify the default commission rate and enter in the design name and description for your image.

Design Name:  The title of your artwork

Description: Describe the image. This may include your inspiration for the piece, or specific elements in the image.

Design Category: Select which category best suits the image.  This is where the image will be displayed if someone is searching by design category.  Eg: If it is a picture of an animal or a pet, it should be place under the Animal category.

Commission Method (Basic / Advanced):  This is where your commission rate may be modified.  By default, the commission rate is set for 10% of the pre-tax selling price for each case a customer buys using your image.

Example:  If 1 case at $24.99 was purchased using your artwork, a $2.50 commission will be earned.

Dollar-Added Per Case Method: If you would like to place a premium on your artwork and earn more commission for it, you are free to modify the image selling price to receive greater earnings per case sold.  For each dollar added to the price, it will increase the cost per case for the customer by an equal amount. However, you will receive that amount of increase as your extra commission.

Example:  If you added $1 per case.  A case originally priced at $24.99 will now sell for $25.99.  You will still receive 10% commission based on the default price of the case ($24.99) plus the extra dollar. 

So, $24.99x0.10= $2.50 plus the extra $1 added equals $3.50 commission earned.

Note: A very large premium on an image may discourage customers from choosing to purchase it!
