  • Getting paid with DefaultCube

Currently, DefaultCube exclusively only accepts PayPal for buying or the selling of 3D models and artwork. In the future we will be working to offer alternative payment methods and service providers.

The total amount you take home for each asset or artwork depends on your total sale price.

DefaultCube fee is 10% of the total sale*. Which just to note – is much less than other providers, ahem just saying.

We may even reduce this to an absolute 0% during special events and seasons. 

Please note a PayPal fee is also deducted, and the exact amount depends on your location:

  • Selling from within the US: 2.7% + 30 cents
  • Selling from outside the US: 4.2% + a few cents
As an example, if you sell a $100 asset or piece of art from within the US, DefaultCube will receive $10 (10% of $100) and PayPal will receive $3.00 (2.7% of $100 plus $0.30). You’ll receive the remaining balance = $87.
Yep! We hate these too transaction fees too. We find artists, creators and crafters alike always get underpaid and sh!t on when it comes to pricing their work and it’s never reflective of its true value or worth. So an aim of ours at DefaultCube is to continuously have a low commission, not so that we pocket from your hard work but so we can give back to things like charities and our community and to simply keep the lights on. Oh! And the kettle. 

We set the threshold to $100, we feel this is reasonable and on average more than obtainable. However if you feel you might not reach the threshold of this amount, send us an email and our accounts team can take a look at this for you. The money will always be yours and its not going anywhere.

You don’t really need too, as we don’t store such data. Plus you Paypal account may change now and then or your simply want your payouts set to a different account. So we made things really easy for you.

Once you reach the $100 threshold, simply click your account name at the top right, then Payouts. Payouts can also be found within your dashboard on the left side.


Then click ‘Request a payout‘.
