How can I earn money on ArtsAdd?
There are 2 ways helping you to earn money with Artsadd.

1, Set royalty rate from 1% up to 99%, you will earn profits from each sale.

When you list the customized product for sale, you specify how much royalty you'll earn for each product that you sell by setting the price.

The total product’s price is the base price plus the royalty you set. So the higher the royalty the higher the price of the product. You can choose any royalty rate from 1% up to 100%, but remember that the higher the price, the fewer you're likely to sell.

For example: Watch’s base price is $10.99, if you set your royalty rate 10%, the price will be $12.09. You will earn $1.10 once your designed watch was bought by customer. Then you will see your earning calculated in the account once the transaction is completed.

2, Earn 10% Commission of each payment as Referral Fee.

You can also earn referral fee on the condition that: Customers place orders successfully through the product/shop link you share on social media, of course it’s a link with your own referral ID.

For example: Post your new designed light up shoes in social media such as Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, a customer visit ArtsAdd through your post link, and purchased some other products finally, in this case, you can still earn 10% of the payment even thought he/she didn’t purchase your designed light up shoes eventually.

How DHL Express charges shipping cost?
To remind rules of DHL shipping cost:

1, DHL shipping fee is charged based on Weight Break Range(1g-500g, 501g-1000g), rather than actual weight.

Take phone case for example:
Even though the phone case's actual weight might be less than 100g, However, DHL will always charge it as 500g weight cost, cause 100g is within DHL weight range 1g-500g based on DHL shipping cost rules.

2, DHL shipping fee is charged based on either Actual Weight or Dimension Weight, Besides, DHL charges the one cost MORE expensive.

Take Canvas Print 10"x8" for example:
The actual weight of Canvas Print is: 240g-260g, according to rule 1, you might think DHL will charge it as 500g weight cost, WRONG!

Cause after packing Canvas Print 10"x8", the Dimension of the package is around: 29cm X 24cm X 10cm,
According to DHL Dimension Weight Formulas: (Long x Width x High)/5000=?kg ===>>> (29cm X 24cm X 10cm)/5000=1.39kg.
Which means, shipping Canvas Print 10"x8" via DHL will be charged fees as 1.5kg range price.
How do you print items?

There are mainly 2 different ways of printing:
1. Applying ink using Sublimation.
*We use sublimation on most of our hand-made product range such as custom shoes, all-over-print apparels, home products, accessories and so on. It involves printing ink onto a very special transfer material and then applying that print to the item with heat transfer processing.
Sublimation results in very vibrant colors. Never fades or cracks!
*Printers we use in this printing method are: MUTOH VJ-1924, ROLAND FH740, Epson Printers and so on.

2. Printing ink with a Direct-To-Garment digital printer.
*This is the method we use for DTG Apparel Printing. It involves state-of-the-art digital printers printing high quality ink directly onto your item.
*Items like Leather Bags, DTG Tshirts, DTG Hoodies, Canvas Prints are printed by this way.
*Printers we use in this printing method are: Konit Storm II, Epson Printers.

*In conclusion, most of our products were printed using a process called sublimation; a process that uses heat to transfer dye into fabric, producing a photo quality image that will never wash out!

What are printers does your factory use?
*We only carry imported well-known brand printers such as: Konit Storm, Epson, MUTOH VJ-1924, ROLAND FH740
*Our printers are capable of printing both RGB & CMYK, the color draft will be less than 1%-2%.
