Sell your work to our thriving community of buyers

The more you sell, the more you earn with our progressive commission rates which are geared towards our authors being able to run a sustainable business model. Our authors have the ability to charge for support, the most time consuming part of selling items such as WordPress templates. Our authors can also offer different packages for each item to encourage sales.

Item Pricing

AlmostFree charges an Author Fee that varies depending on your all-time sales and whether you’ve opted to sell your work exclusively on AlmostFree Market.

Non-Exclusive Author Fee 50% – 55%

Exclusive Author Fee 20% – 35%

The amount you earn for every sale is calculated by taking the Item Price and deducting our Author Fee.

For Exclusive Authors, the more items you sell, the less our Author Fee becomes.



The Rules
  1. Becoming an author is free: Becoming an author and putting your items up on the AlmostFree Market is free but there is a review process. There are a few things you promise in exchange for the right to be an author, which are outlined in these Author Terms.
  2. Process to become an author: There are easy steps you follow to sign up as an author, which are outlined on the AlmostFree Market Become an Author guide. There you’ll find instructions and resources that will help you get started. You’ll also find information about payment, submission requirements and other important information about being an author on our Author Guide page.
  3. Exclusivity: When you become an author, you can choose to make your items and related items available exclusively on AlmostFree or to retain the ability to sell your items elsewhere. The percentage of revenue you receive from each sale of your item will vary depending on your choice (as explained below). You can change your exclusivity status of your account at any time. See our Exclusivity Policy for more information, including on how we define ‘related items’.
  4. Your earnings; author fee: When your item is sold on AlmostFree Market, you will earn the item price component of the list price less an author fee that we charge. The author fee is what you are charged by AlmostFree for use of our platform and services as an author. The author fee is determined by whether you are selling the item only on AlmostFree Market exclusively and by the aggregate value of list price sales you’ve had in the past. The author fee you pay to us is set out in the rates schedule that we can change at our discretion, from time to time. Any changes to these rates will take effect on and from the date on which notice of the variation is posted by us on AlmostFree Market.
  5. Setting the prices of items: We set the prices of items in some categories on AlmostFree Market. We know how valuable your creations are to you and so we endeavor to make the prices we set for your items fair and in line with the going market rate. Even so, you acknowledge and agree that we have absolute control over the pricing of AlmostFree Market items in categories where we set the prices. There are some categories known as ‘author-driven pricing categories’ where authors set the prices for their items. If you sell items in an author-driven pricing category, you must make all pricing decisions independently. This means that discussions about your pricing decisions are not permitted under any circumstances.
  6. Review: We have rules about what we accept and don’t accept and you can read up on these in our author-related AlmostFree Market information. Although we always like to provide constructive feedback we’re not obliged to give you any reasons for rejecting your item. We have the final say on whether items are accepted for AlmostFree Market.
  7. No Variation: You are not permitted to vary these terms (or our AlmostFree Market Terms) as they apply between you and buyers, or to offer your items on different terms or with additional terms (for example, through your item description pages). Any different or additional terms that you try to impose on AlmostFree Market on your items will have no effect against buyers or AlmostFree.
