The Sketchfab Store Turns 5!

Back to overview

Five years ago today, on January 17, 2018, we launched the Sketchfab Store in beta to help our community members monetize their work with our platform. Ever since, we’ve been fortunate enough to see our seller base grow by the thousands and marketplace earnings double every year since the Store’s inception!

To celebrate our amazing creator community and continue our annual tradition of thanking sellers for working with us, we will be waiving our commissions for five days. That means that all sellers on the Sketchfab Store will be earning 100% on sales from 12 AM EST on January 17 until 11:59 PM on January 21st. (PayPal fees still apply.)

Over the last year, we’ve continued our rapid growth across all key metrics: new buyers welcomed to the platform, seller registrations and revenue earned by the creator community.

To date, over 200,000 loyal customers have chosen the Sketchfab Store to power their creative projects with our sellers’ 3D assets. We have seen a growing number of buyers returning to the Store time and again—proof of the buyer loyalty that has been our goal from day one.

In the infographic below, we share some data highlights from 2022 to give you more insight into what assets are in high demand and where we believe trends are headed in the future.

Also here’s the collection of some of our favorite store assets from the last 5 years:

In the upcoming year we are aiming to build a great new set of features for our seller community and double down on some of our existing marketing initiatives to drive more eyes to the Sketchfab Store’s vast library of high-quality 3D content.

To make the most of this event, we strongly encourage sellers to promote their Sketchfab Store assets via their social media channels.

If you are not yet a seller, we invite you to apply today. Let’s continue building the place to buy 3D models together.
