How much will I earn?

What percentage do I earn?

Each time your document sells on Thinkswap, you will earn a percentage of the total sale.

The percentage you earn is called a 'Royalty' and the rate starts from a minimum of 50% and can increase up to 70%. The rate earned increases when Royalty Boosters are added and these can be enabled once your first Elite upload is approved.


What is the sale price of my Elite document?

Thinkswap sets the price of all documents using its own currency, "Exchange Credits". The sale price of an Elite upload is by default 5 Exchange Credits. What this means, is that each time a user purchases your Elite document for 5 Exchange Credits and pays Thinkswap, you will earn a percentage of the sale price. The most common sale price of 5 Exchange Credits (and thus an Elite document) is $19.95.

There are instances where users do not purchase Exchange Credits for money but rather earn Exchange Credits by sharing their own work or contributing to the platform in other ways. In this case, both the Elite uploader and Thinkswap do not earn any money for the sale.


"In short, when we earn money from the sale of your document,

you will earn a percentage of the total sale."
