How Does The Creative Market Partner Program Work?

By now, you’re interested in this partner thing, but need to know the facts, so let’s cut to the chase. Here’s the rundown of how it all works.

You send people to Creative Market by sharing links on social media, your blog, etc.
Some of those people will be new to Creative Market, and will sign up for an account.
For every new customer you bring to Creative Market, you’ll earn 10% on every purchase they make for a full year.

It’s as easy as that. How much you earn depends on how much you share. Some of our more successful partners are earning thousands of dollars every single month.

Joining the Program

Signing up for the Partner program is super easy. Over at the Partners page, click on the button that says “Become a Partner.” From here, you’ll see a window that asks a few simple questions.

Why Do I Have to Answer Questions?

We use this as a way to filter out nasty spammers, so don’t sweat the answers too much. We’re not looking for The Grapes of Wrath, just a sentence or two on how and why you’ll be sharing Creative Market with the world.

As long as you’re a real person with genuine intentions, you should do just fine.

Tip: If you’re a Creative Market shop owner, mention it in your Partner application.


Sharing With Your Partner Link

Once you’re in, what’s next? Obviously, it’s time to share some products on your social channels or blog. To do this though, you have to make sure you’re using your partner link.

Fortunately, we help you out with this by making sure that your Partner program information is baked into every one of our sharing buttons all across the site. For instance, at the bottom of every product screenshot, you should see a strip of buttons like this:

If you’re signed up for our partner program, we’ll track any links that you share with these buttons. I personally use the last button on the right all the time, which generates a shortened link to the current product that you can use anywhere you like.

Make Any URL a Partner Link

To create a partner link from any page on Creative Market, simply append “?u=username” to the URL (where “username” = your personal Creative Market user name) .
