FAQs About Marketplace
Can I return a Scene that I've already purchased?
No, it is not currently possible to return a Scene that you purchase.
I submitted a Scene for the Marketplace, when will it be available?
We have a member of the Topia team review every Scene before it is added to the Marketplace. As part of the process, a human will review each asset and any links or media that is included in the Scene to ensure that it complies with our Terms of Service and Code of Conduct. We will do our best to review Scenes as quickly as possible; however, this process may take up to 2 business days.
How much of the purchase price will I receive?
When a purchase is made through the marketplace, the payment processing fees are first deducted ($0.30 + 2.9%) and then 70% of the remaining balance is paid to the creator of the Scene, 21% of the remaining balance is collected by Topia, and 9% is paid out through our Commission system.
If someone purchases my Scene, how can they use the assets?
When a Scene is purchased from the Marketplace, the purchaser will have access to use the scene as well as each of the assets that are included in the Scene. These will appear in their Scene Library and Asset Library, respectively.
The purchaser cannot use assets acquired through the marketplace in a submission to the Marketplace. The assets acquired through the marketplace can be used in the Purchaser's worlds.
Why do I need to setup a Marketplace Account?
In order to receive payments through the marketplace, we require anyone who submits a Scene (whether it is offered for free or a fee) to authenticate and create an account via Stripe Connect. By setting up this account you will have the ability to receive payments from the marketplace and receive payments for commissions. Topia does not collect or store any bank or credit card information, this is handled exclusively through Stripe.
