DeviantART is proud to announce our Premium Content Platform

Providing the ability for content creators to become sellers and generate real earnings by making digital files of their high-quality work available for download. Sellers are able to set their own prices while retaining 80% of all revenue earned, and buyers are able to quickly get the things they want with the satisfaction of supporting the artists they love.

What is Premium Content?

The Premium Content Platform was built to represent high-quality content — the premier pieces in an artist's repertoire of work. We encourage the sale of everything from comics or stories for download, to high-res files like .PSDs, textures, tutorials, brush packs, and more!

What are Points?

DeviantART Points are a virtual currency that can be used to buy virtual and real goods on deviantART. Points can be purchased using a credit card or PayPal, and one U.S. dollar is the equivalent to 80 Points. A buyer making a Premium Content Platform purchase must use Points for the transaction.

Eligibility and Agreements

Sellers enter into an agreement with the buyer on each download. When making a download available for sale, sellers can use a standard Personal Use/Personal Non-Commercial Use License Agreement or can insert their own Custom License Agreement.

Supporting Artists, Empowering Buyers

The majority of work on deviantART will always remain free. Members and visitors will still be able to browse and download millions of deviations at no cost. The Premium Content Platform was built to represent the premier pieces in an artist's repertoire of work. Our aim with the Platform is to provide a place where artists are able to sell their work and feel empowered and dignified by receiving a deserving share of the earnings. Buyers are able to directly support the artists they love through purchases made on the Premium Content Platform.

The Premium Content Platform launch is a staged release. All members are currently enabled to buy content. However, only a small segment of deviants have been granted the privilege to sell. Over the next few weeks, more and more deviants will be given the privilege to become sellers. Those who have the ability to sell will be notified with a Hot Topic notification in their Message Center.

would fan art be in violation of the "content that is original to you and/or that you have the full authority to offer the content for sale"? if someone commissioned a image of a character from a tv series or something?

Yes, you do. When you've sold something, dA will notify you and then you can choose whether you want points or cash (Paypal or check).

Not sure what's really going on here. So far I like (the art, the diversity) that I have seen. All looks very complicated, but I guess that I'll learn as I go. I've just thrown out a couple of my paintings as a way of wading into this. Will see what happens. Oh yes, compared to most (all) of you, I'm nearly computer illiterate.

So is this only for .pdf sales? Like, multiple page documents?
That makes sense, but this article makes it sound like anything can be sold using Premium Content Platform. If that is the case, how is it any different than the buyers copying and pasting the picture?
