Asset Production

Quality Check Go To Top

How are assets reviewed for quality check?

We have a dedicated team who will review assets to make sure that they are of high quality and meet the requirements set out in the Assets Guide. You can raise a second review of any assets/members who you think are not quite up to standards.

What if I do not want to submit my assets during the development period at Coorative?

If you are not comfortable handing over the assets just yet, that is fine. We will then ask you to simply provide us with proofs/portfolio links so we can keep a track of the assets that are available to the Coorative Library upon launch. Please note that when we are ready to launch you will be asked to submit your assets for review.

What assets can / can't I submit to Coorative?

Please read through our Asset Guidelines for detailed information.

What is the refund policy at Coorative for assets?

Please read through our Asset Guidelines for detailed information.

 

Asset Ownership and Distribution

License Go To Top

What kind of license are my assets sold under?

Currently we are working on a few license options for you to choose from, something similar to the 'Creative Commons'. More details will be available nearer to launch.

Are the Copyrights transferred when I submit my assets to Coorative?

No. You will always be the Copyright holder for any assets designed/created by you.

How do I protect my assets from illegal distribution?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, an vis vivendum instructior, sapientem assentior pro te, adhuc fabulas elaboraret ne nec. Malorum oportere te sea, ex eligendi recteque eum, putant ornatus scripserit in pri. Ludus verear aeterno duo an, vide periculis iracundia cu pri. Hinc luptatum eam cu, malorum perfecto eum eu.

 

Managing Your Income

Sales Go To Top

How are sale prices set per asset?

At Coorative you set the prices for your assets within a standardised rate guide. You can then set how many 'Download Merits' are required to purchase your asset. Each 'Download Merit' is worth a certain amount of money. Your asset will always be sold in 'Merits', which will then be converted to money in your dashboard.

Can I sell my assets elsewhere?

Yes. Coorative is here to help you grow. You are free to sell your assets on as many platforms as you like. However please do read though our Asset Guide for the Multi-platform Sales policy.

Will I be charged to withdraw funds from my Coorative account?

You can withdraw once a month free of cost. For further withdraws you will be charged. Notifications for charges will be available once the platform is ready to launch in 2016.

Tax Go To Top

Do I need to manage my own taxes on my earnings?

Yes. You will be entirely responsible to submit your own taxes for the earnings you make through Coorative.

Merits Go To Top

How are Merits calculated per asset?

At Coorative you set the prices for your assets within a standardised rate guide. You can then set how many 'Download Merits' are required to purchase your asset. Each 'Download Merit' is worth a certain amount of money. Your asset will always be sold in 'Merits', which will then be converted to money in your dashboard.

Why is there a need for Coorative Merit System?

For everyone's best interest it is important that people are contributing and not just taking advantage of other member's assets, so we came up with the Merit System. This system will keep a track of the assets contributed and downloaded for fair usage.

What if I want to download assets but can't contribute?

That is perfectly fine too. For you we will have a non-contributor membership, which will let you do exactly that. You can then simply purchase Merits to download assets from the Coorative Assets Library.

What if I've run out of Merits but need to download an asset?

No problem, you will have an option under your dashboard which will let you purchase Merits. You can then use those to download the asset required.

About Go To Top

How can I make money from Coorative?

You will be able to sell to clients/non-contributing members directly from your Coorative account. Coorative, unlike others, will not take a slice of your cake. We will not charge you for your sales. Any money that you make through sales will be yours.

Why do I need to sign up now?

Currently we are in the process of developing the platform and building a community. We are getting professionals onboard for two main reasons. First; to start building a library of assets in preparation for launch. Second; to get as much feedback as possible, to make this a site that serves its members.

How is Coorative different from similar platforms?

There is no other platform like Coorative. At Coorative you can get a wide range of assets for as long as you are a member. Coorative is a platform built by creatives from different fields for creatives in the industry. At Coorative everyone contributes high quality assets to get the same in return. You can also enjoy other collaborative opportunities at Coorative.

How does Coorative compare to other platforms that provide free assets?

The problem with free assets is that, they are generally low quality as they have been designed only to increase traffic to the creator’s site.

In cases where the assets are of good quality and happen to be free, there are always limitations. For example a website theme might allow certain functions and will only allow full functions if you pay.

At Coorative YOU will be contributing high quality assets to get high quality assets in return. You are simply fair trading here. You can also sell your assets to anybody who will not be contributing assets.

How does Coorative compare with other platforms that provide premium assets?

At Coorative, the core principle is 'Team Work'. You are simply trading assets along with other collaborative opportunities.

Currently there is a huge flaw in the market of creative assets. If you are somebody who may need creative assets regularly, going to these premium sites is very expensive.  If you are somebody that sells premium assets, selling at these sites means that you get charged per sale, which is not fair either.

At Coorative you are paying a small subscription fee to get access to 1000s of premium assets and you keep 100% of the income from your sales. We thought this was a much better way forward!

Isn't Coorative disturbing the industry's market?

No. Coorative allows unlimited access to 'Creators/Contributors' only. Anybody that will not be making contributions will be paying for assets in the traditional fashion. This means that, even if ALL the designers, musician, photographer ect were a part of Coorative, they would still be able to make money from the end users.

You membership gets cancelled at the end of the membership term once you have requested for your account to be closed.
