Welcome to TPT!
There's lots of helpful information in our FAQs about what TPT is all about and how selling works. As a Teacher-Author (Seller), you'll also have access to TPT University where you'll find even more tips and tricks to help you along the way. Here's a brief overview of how selling works:
TPT is a marketplace for original educator-created content. This may include instructional resources, classroom decor, professional development, as well as supplies for creating content such as clip art, font, and other designs. Once you register for a Seller account, you can start uploading resources to your store. You can set your own prices, throw sales, and explore ways to promote and market your store. We take care of processing orders for you and help out with customer support.
Seller Membership Options
We offer a few different membership options for Sellers to choose from. Our Basic Membership is a one-time non-refundable fee of $29 USD, and offers standard features and tools. Our Premium Membership has an annual subscription fee, offers premium features and tools, and you earn a higher Payout Rate. For more details, check out our Seller Payout Rates and Fees policy here.
Setting Up Your Store
Your catalog will exist at a unique store URL that's created when you sign up as a Seller. You’ll be able to personalize your store page by uploading a profile image or logo, telling your visitors about yourself and your experience, adding a store banner and so on. Start uploading resources and choose up to four resources to feature at the top of your store page. At any time, you can edit your listings, alter the titles and descriptions, change your prices, and swap in revised versions of your products.
How We Pay You
Since we launched in 2006, teachers have earned millions of dollars on TPT. We pay out all earnings monthly to an account you designate through our payout processor, Hyperwallet. For a list of the payout options currently available see here. You can keep track of your sales and earnings in real time from your Seller Dashboard and your Sales Details Report.
