Pricing as varied as the art itself!

Pricing Options

 

Basic Pricing

Unless your artwork is free (and it can be), you’ll want to set at least one pricing option. For example…

Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses: Price $30 

You can also set multiple prices based on the usage. For example…

Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses – For use in a single app: Price $30
Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses – For use in 2-4 apps: Price $45 

If you’ve got something free or super cheap to sell, consider asking for Tips. For example…

GUI – 10 Icons – Free
GUI – 10 Icons – Tip Jar: $1
GUI – 10 Icons – Super Tipper: $3 

Since you can completely customize the pricing, you can also offer pre-paid additions to the art. For example…

Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses – For use in a single app: Price $30
Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses PLUS 5  custom animations of similar length at the buyer’s request: Price $99 

The buyer will be given your email after the order, and you’ll deal directly with them. Since GameArtPartners.com will have already collected payment for the order, we will hold the funds in escrow until the work is completed, and act as an intermediary if any issues arise. The good news for artists is that the work has already been paid for by the buyer, so you’ll never have to worry about completing work and not getting paid. Buyers and artists can both benefit from getting introduced to each other through the site, and possibly work together in the future without us acting as an intermediary.

Finally, here is an example of what NOT to do

Incredi-Boy Character – 10 Animated Poses: Price $30
GUI Package with 40 Icons: Price $30

Notice the second pricing option has no relation to the first, so this would be better off listed as two totally separate items on the site.

When creating multiple prices, please keep in mind that you are essentially up-selling a single product, with enhancements or extras, but each price tier maintains a connection to the base product.

 

Royalty Payment Plans

We are always on the lookout for larger bundles of art that could be considered for a royalty payment option. For a developer to be interested in entering into a royalty agreement, the art would have to standout both in quality, uniqueness and of course quantity. Developers won’t want to give back a portion of sales for using one or two pieces of art. If the majority of their app could feature your work, that is when a royalty plan should be considered. Plans can be created on a sliding scale to offer an incentive to buyers to purchase the art outright for a higher price, or at a lower price with tiers of royalties.  For example…

 Art Package with 15% royalties on gross revenue from a single app: Price $49
Art Package with 5% royalties on gross revenue from a single app: Price $99
Art Package with 2% royalties on gross revenue from a single app: Price $199
Art Package with NO royalties – for use in a single app: Price $299
Art Package with NO royalties – for use in 2-10 apps: Price $499

Get in touch with us if you think your art should be looked at for a bundle option with a royalty provision.

Bundling

You can bundle together your existing products into a single product for a discounted price vs purchasing each item separately.  To do this, use the usual Submission form in your dashboard and find the section regarding Bundles. Enter each URL of the product you want to bundle and we will create it for you. You do not need to upload any extra downloadable assets, but you can submit a Featured Image, Description and any other details you want to add specifically for the bundle.
