If you’ve been buying items you can easily have free a Basic Membership. If you have a Basic Membership TPT will charge $0.30 per item sold and take a percentage. For example, if an item sells for $2, you will make $0.90 after TPT takes the $0.30 transaction fee and $0.80 in commission.
If you choose Upgrade to Premium you will get 85% royalties with no transaction fees. It costs $59.95 a year to upgrade to premium.
Once you have made something you want to add to your store, there are few things to consider and have prepared.
*The item you want to sell:
Be sure to include (c) info and your store link. Make sure you credit anyone that made graphics for your item and that they are allowed to be used for Commercial Use. Consider including directions for use.
*Create a preview picture.
*Know how many pages/slides long your item is.
*Look at a few similar items and see how much they cost and make a decision about your item.
*Consider having jpegs for pages to put up as thumbnails, and a description prepared.

There is a limit to what you can upload. Be sure to notice the limits because if you try to save after all of this and something is too big, it makes you do a lot of it all over again.
Take the time to consider a title that will catch attention and has great key words for searches. Be very clear in your description. You need to add at least one resource and subject (max 3).
