9. Setting creator earnings

Creator earnings

NFT sales can be programmed to pay creator earnings each time the NFT is sold, allowing creators to be rewarded for their work. When respected by web3 marketplaces, these creator earnings are paid every time an NFT moves from wallet to wallet after a purchase. To enable creator fees on OpenSea, make sure you followed the steps to enforce creator earnings for your contract. If you do not follow these steps, creator earnings for your collection(s) will be optional on OpenSea. Secondary sellers will be able to choose whether to include creator earnings when creating a listing or accepting an offer. Learn More

Setting creator earnings

To set your creator earnings, simply go to your collection editor and under the Creator earnings section, specify the payout address(es) where you wish to receive the earnings and what percentage of each sale (up to 10%) you wish to receive.

But in order for creator earnings to be enforced on OpenSea for collections created after January 2, 2023, you will need to include an on-chain enforcement method in their smart contract, such as Operator Filter, to prevent the sale of your NFTs using marketplaces that do not respect creator earnings. For collections without this type of on-chain enforcement method, creator earnings will be optional. Secondary sellers will be able to choose whether to include creator earnings when creating a listing or accepting an offer.

The availability and enforcement of creator earnings varies by marketplace and, if available, you’ll need to set your creator earnings on other web3 marketplaces separately. We recommend checking each marketplace's individual policies and guidelines.

Receiving your creator earnings

Creators automatically receive creator earnings, if applicable, directly from the buyer.
