Make Money Selling SVG Files

Updated: Sep 3, 2019




A little backstory before I started creating & selling SVG files I had been trying to run a small portrait photography business but had trouble getting clients because I'm not what you would call a social butterfly, I'm more of an introverted house cat and honestly, I was never very confident about my work &I will admit before opening a store on Etsy to sell digital products I was hesitant, and honestly didn't know it was an option until a girl I work with said she had been selling digital products for a few years and was earning a really good income from it. I had been trying to run a small portrait photography business but had trouble getting clients because I'm not what you would call a social butterfly, I'm more of an introverted house cat and honestly, I was never very confident about my work so I figured what the heck lets at least entertain the idea.


I didn't start creating SVG files right away I opened my first shop "Monkey Mom Prints" my first listings were printable decor, party supplies, & some digital paper....after a few months with absolutely no sales I thought this was a mistake, but promised myself to give it at least a year. The same girl who encouraged me to try digital products said I should look into making craft files or SVGs I didn't own a Cricut at the time but I gave it a whirl and added a few Christmas designs to my store and FINALLY I started getting a few orders, so I decided to purchase my first Cricut and began making more SVG files, once I found my niche and a little more designs in my store I looked into opening a few more stores. So I'll go over some of the current stores I have open in the order of income source.



Like I said the first store I opened was Etsy and is still my biggest source of income.

• Opening a shop is free

• Opening a shop doesn't require an application.

• Ability to market directly on Google & Etsy.

• Set your own coupons & sales.

• It cost to list items (.20¢ per listing renewed every 6 months or when it sells)

• Transactions fee of 5% every time something sells

• Ability to know when you get a sale through app or seller dashboard & email.

• Pretty good analytics on where you are getting sales.

• You can set your payouts to be daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or once a month.

• Your payout is issued in your bank account in as little as a day.



Design Bundles is my second highest source of income through my digital stores:

• Opening a shop is free.

• There is an application process, it's fairly simple but you could be turned down if you are relatively new but just keep working and try again.

• There are no listing fees.

• You keep 70% off the sales unless it's a sale through and affiliate link in which case you get 50% of the sale.

• You can set your own sales up and times to run.

• Opportunity to get selected for bundles and other promotions.

• The minimum price of an item is $3

• Ability to know when you get a sale through email, or seller dashboard.

• Pretty good analytics on where you are getting sales.

• Payouts are issued through Paypal and take up to 7 business days once requested.



The Hungry Jpeg -a good source of income but not my highest store.

• Opening a shop is free.

• There is an application process, it's fairly simple but you could be turned down if you are relatively new but just keep working and try again.

• You keep 70% off the sales.

• Setting up your own sale per item is possible but there is no option to set your entire store on sale.

• Opportunity to get selected for bundles and other promotions.

• Opportunity to get selected for bundles on their sister site Craftbundles.

• The minimum price of an item is $1.

• You have to check the seller dashboard to know if you got a sale.

• The analytics are pretty basic but still there.

• Payouts are issued through Paypal by the 10th business day of every month.


Creative Fabrica- This platform has its bonuses.

• Opening a shop is free.

• The application process is pretty easy.

• You keep 75% of the sales.

• There isn't a way to set up sales & discounts on items.

• They have a subscription service for access to files that you can opt in and out of per item.

• There are basically no analytics for your items, its pretty difficult to tell where the income is coming from due to the subscription downloads.

• There is also no way to discount your items or shop.

• Payouts are issued through Paypal and take up to 7 business days once requested.

• The minimum price of an item is $1.


So Fontsy- I currently don't have a store on this site but what I do know is application process is not the most user-friendly and trying to sign up for an account is difficult.

Digitanza- I just recently opened a shop on here and it was relatively easy, I haven't listed anything yet but I know you keep 50% of earnings.


Another option is to sell directly through your blog or to offer your files through a Patreon service.

Whatever platform(s) you decide to sell on create designs you love and would use yourself.
