Earnings on Sticky
Sales carried out in ETH directly between crypto wallets (i.e. not involving StickyCoins) are processed by smart contract, with ZERO fees charged by Sticky.
Get Paid in USD!
If you are a Creator or Collector on Sticky, you can use your StickyCoin balance to build your NFT collection with ZERO commissions. Just keep selling & trading up! You can also request a payment in USD.
Creators typically receive around US$100 for every 1k StickyCoins earned
Creators & Collectors who request USD earnings payment receive the gross sales value of the StickyCoins they have earned net of payment (i.e. app store, card processor) fees, taxes, refunds/frauds and a Sticky fee. Currently, the Sticky fee on USD payments is 30%. As payment volume increases and systems become more efficient, we will work to offer lower fees.
Example calculation: assume StickyCoins have been sold for US$0.20 on average (prices vary by bundle), 40% of sales have been on iOS (30% fees), 40% by card (5% fee) and 20% in ETH (0% fee) on the web. This results in a 14% average payment fee. Assume 6% in taxes & frauds. With the 30% Sticky fee, this results in net earnings of 50%, or US$0.10 per StickyCoin, for the creator.
Important: your earnings may differ from this example, because the mix of sales across platforms, rate of refunds and collector coin bundle prices vary over time and among creators. As a creator, if you have more sales on higher-cost platforms, your sales incur more refunds and collectors of your items usually buy lower-cost bundles, your earnings will be lower.
Payments are made via Stripe Connect at the end of the calendar month subsequent to the month of the request, and made at the beginning of the following month.
Eligibility for USD payments
To keep Sticky safe for everyone, there are some rules for payments.
Only StickyCoins earned in accordance with guidelines are eligible for payments. This means:
StickyCoins must be earned, not bought or bonuses. You cannot request a USD payment for StickyCoins you have bought yourself, or received as a bonus or prize.
Only users who respect Sticky platform rules are eligible for payments. This means:
If you have attempted to circumvent Sticky rules (e.g. sold fake NFTs, created fake accounts, tried to commit fraud) you are not eligible. Learn more about the Sticky Rules
Additional safeguards apply:
Accounts that request or sell NFTs connected to an in-app-purchase or credit-card refund or chargeback are ineligible for a minimum of 150 days after each refund. If the refund/chargeback is indicative of fraud, the account is permanently ineligible.
Users located in a country subject to US sanctions are ineligible for payments.
