New ArtFire Plans
There's been a few updates since we shared an internal working document of the proposed plan structure. (A special note for legacy sellers. This table does not include either the locked-legacy or legacy-option plans, please see our note about legacy sellers below).
Commercial Commission Premium
Historically we've required sellers who wish to sell any number of commercial items to maintain a Commercial account and pay a higher monthly fee. We’re no longer classifying merchants as commercial or handmade but instead each item listed will be assessed a 3% commercial commission premium if it is listed in a commercial category.
We understand that sometimes complementary accessories to handmade products are made available for sale by merchants that offer handmade items such as an electric wax/tart warmer in a candle shop. Under the past policy that single item could warrant a Commercial classification of that merchant.
Now any merchant at any plan level (that pays a commission) can list commercial items, and when that item sells the commission rate will be 3% more than the base rate for that plan. As an example, a Commission Only shop would pay a 12% commission to sell commercial items (9% Base Rate +3% commercial commission premium).
Note for Legacy Sellers
There are no max item restrictions for legacy plans. Locked-legacy sellers who do not take the Legacy Option plan (and don't pay a commission) cannot list products in Commercial categories at this time.
Below is a run-down of the most important additions.
This section outlines the two main types of payments shops will make, commission payments and plan payments. The fees and billing section also provides ArtFire's timeline for handling and retrying failed payments.
This section lists some prohibited behaviors that include spamming and harassment of other users.
