With three unique vendor membership tiers, Direct Creatives offers plans to fit all business needs.  But how do you know which vendor membership tier is best for you?

Keep reading to help find out how to choose your Direct Creatives Vendor Membership tier.

Questions To Ask Yourself

The first step in determining which Direct Creatives membership tier is best for you is to ask yourself a few questions to gauge exactly what you are looking to get out of the marketplace.

We recommend answering the following questions:

  • How many items do you plan to have listed on Direct Creatives?
  • What will be the average price point of the items you plan to sell?
  • How many items do you forecast selling per month?

Hot Tip- Keeping track of your membership goals and milestones will keep you motivated! We LOVE Evernote to hold ourselves accountable!

Membership Tier Comparison

If you’re anything like us, you like designing WAY more than you like doing math.  Well, because we feel you on that, we did the number crunching for you!

For the basis of determining break even points, we will use an average price per item of $7.99 in our comparison.  

Enterprise level:

  • 80% commission (before fees) = 6.39
  • 259/6.39 = 41 sales to breakeven.

Business Builder Level:

  • 70% commission (before fees) = 5.59
  • 149/5.59 = 27 to breakeven.

Side Hustler Level:

  • 60% commission (before fees) = 4.79
  • Immediate breakeven.

Other Considerations To Help You Choose Your Direct Creatives Vendor Membership

A few additional numbers for you, then we are done with the math lesson, we promise!

Assuming you sell 100 items per year at an average price point of $7.99, the commission difference between the Side Hustler and Enterprise membership tier is an additional $160 in your pocket.  

The Enterprise level will be especially beneficial if you will be offering products or services with a higher price point as you will have a lower break even point.  For example, if you offer consultations or bookings at $99 each, your commission (before fees) would be $79.20 each which would allow you to breakeven in only three calls.  Everything above that will be pure profit at the highest level of commission!
