Sketchfab Store: Year in Review 

Back to overview

As we look back at 2021, we are grateful for another outstanding year, our amazing seller community, and the over 100,000 loyal customers who power their creative projects with the Sketchfab Store.

I want to take this opportunity to share the highlights of what we have achieved together.

Joining the Epic Games family 🙌

This year Sketchfab joined the Epic Games family and we increased our seller revenue share to 88% (it had previously been 70%) on each sale. With this increase, our marketplace now provides creators with one of the highest revenue shares in the entire content licensing ecosystem. Helping sellers to succeed is our main mission and now that we’re a part of Epic, the sky’s the limit.

3D model sales doubled in 2021   📈

We hope everyone felt the uptick in sales during the year as we connected with more buyers than ever, helping everyone from individuals to Fortune 500 organizations create best-in-class products, games, and experiences with our marketplace. Moreover, with over 100 Download API integrations, more creators than ever before are able to access their store purchases within their creation software of choice.

Consistent year-over-year doubling of sales since the inception of our store speaks volumes about the creative talent of our seller community and we couldn’t be prouder.

We paid out over $1,000,000 to our sellers this year 🚀

Our sellers are earning more on every transaction and this year we paid out well over $1 million in seller commissions. More creators have been able to earn stable monthly income from their sales. With nearly 80% of our sellers having made sales, we believe that we can only improve in 2022 as we expand our promotion of all the outstanding creators and assets on the Store.

Take a look at some of our favorite 3D models of the year, handpicked by our very own Luis Cherubini.

I want to thank our buyers for trusting us with their projects and thank our sellers for powering the creativity of others by distributing their work through the Sketchfab Store.

Here’s to an amazing 2022 together!
