Understanding what it means to be an author

To become an author and sell items on Landofcoder Market, you must first read the following information.

1. The basics of being an author

Landofcoder Market is based on a royalty-free stock model. This means that when you sell an item on any of the marketplaces, you're granting the buyer a license to use that file in certain ways, but you retain ownership of the item and can sell as many licenses as you want. Once you upload an item, it can be purchased ten unlimitedly.

Everything you sell as an author on Landofcoder Market must be your own original content, and if you use any assets that are owned by someone else, you must have a license that grants you permission to use and resell them.

2. How does it work?

Upload your items, see them get approved for sale, and build a portfolio of work across as many different disciplines as you want.

Every item for sale on Landofcoder Market has been checked by a staff member. The item is either priced based on its complexity and market value or can be priced by you, depending on the pricing approach for the category. See our help center for more information on which categories have items priced by the author. We aim to catch issues that would reflect negatively on your sales and the broader Landofcoder Market standards, and may not be able to approve your items if they do not follow our guidelines or are otherwise unsuitable for sale. The review process ensures that when a customer comes to any Landofcoder Market site, they're buying a product that has already been tried and tested.
