New Ways to Receive Prints Profits!

Tue Mar 27, 2012, 6:10 PM

At deviantART, we're all about supporting artists any way we can. We do this is by giving our members a platform for displaying their art, tools to exchange comments and critiques, and avenues for finding new friends and mentors all over the world.

We also want to help artists by providing a place to sell their art, which we've done for years through our Prints program. Because the process of receiving payments from your art sales has been less than ideal, we've worked hard on a new earnings system. We've heard your feedback and suggestions, and want to give you a preview of three ways you will be able to receive profits from the Prints that you've sold. Check out these changes coming soon!

Points, PayPal, and Checks

With our new program, we're adding ways to instantly receive payments, all of which will be found in the new and improved My Earnings page.


The simplest way to receive your Prints profits will be through Points! You will be able to convert any or all of your Prints profits into deviantART Points instantly once the transaction has cleared. When you select Points, they will be transferred into your Points balance and can be used right away! And the best part is, there's no minimum balance requirement to take advantage of this offer. Whether you make one sale or one hundred sales, you will be able to transfer your profits into Points at any time!

By the way, you'll soon be able to use Points for lots of other awesome things!

Withdraw as Points by Ayame-Kenoshi


For PayPal, the new option will be that you can receive your PayPal payment on demand instead of waiting until the end of the quarter. You must accumulate at least $5 in Prints profits to use this option. Each withdrawal will incur a $1.00 processing fee. However, we waive this fee for Premium Members.

Withdrawl via PayPal by Ayame-Kenoshi


In the past, only Premium Members could opt-in to receive profits in checks. The check option will be made available to all. Checks will be mailed monthly, so you will need to be sure to keep your mailing address up-to-date in order to get your checks as painlessly as possible. There will be a minimum balance of at least $20 in profits to withdraw a check, and your check will be issued for the full, cleared balance in your account. You will not be able to withdraw a custom amount for your check.

Because checks are costly to process, there will be a $5 fee associated with this option. Like PayPal, we will be waiving this processing fee for Premium Members. 

Receive a Check by Ayame-Kenoshi

For international sellers, please be aware that, as in the past, all money payments are made in U.S. Dollars backed by a U.S. bank.


All deviantDOLLARS will be converted to earnings. If you have a balance of deviantDOLLARS now, when these changes take place, all deviantDOLLARS will show as U.S. currency on your My Earnings account. You can then choose to withdraw those earnings under the three new payment options. We will be sad to see deviantDOLLARS go, but they will live on in our hearts.

Stay in the know!

Keep up to date with the Prints program by joining the #printscommunity group! As a member, you'll receive updates on all things Prints related, sellers tips, and the latest news about special contests and events!

Premium Members, remember that you receive even more Prints profit benefits, such as the ability to buy your own work at a discount and set your own price on Prints to make more money on each sale.

We hope you're as excited about these upcoming changes to Prints profits as we are! We'd love to hear your feedback. These changes are coming soon and we'll let you know once they're live. Stay tuned to hq for the latest news! :eager:

can someone help me? i'm not too sure about this, once you say that one of your works can be sold as a print, do you have to make the print yourself and mail it or dose deviantart do that for you?

Once one of your Prints sells, deviantART will create and send the Print for you. :)
