The Shop Owner's Guide to Bonus Free Goods

What are Bonus Free Goods?
These additional free goods are part of Creative Market’s Customer Loyalty Program, which offers Bonus Free Goods to customers who meet a spending threshold each week. When a customer meets the spending threshold, they unlock 3 additional Bonus Free Goods. This also gives more Shop Owners the opportunity to be featured! 

What is the difference between Free Goods and Bonus Free Goods?

  • “Free Goods” will be set as "Free" for all Creative Market users during an upcoming 1-week period.
  • “Bonus Free Goods” will be shown as products that customers can unlock as free downloads only by spending $15 or more on Creative Market. 
  • For both types of free goods, we'll promote your shop and top paid products on our Free Goods page and in our Free Goods email newsletter.

How long will a Bonus Free Good be available?
Just like all the Free Goods, three bonus free goods will be available each week during the promotion starting on Monday at 12:00 AM CT (UTC-6). The previous week’s free bonus goods expire at 11:59 pm CT (UTC-6) Sunday and will no longer be available once a new week begins. 

How will Bonus Free Goods be selected?
As of June 20, 2017, any products that are submitted to the Free Goods queue will be entered into consideration for both the “Free Goods” and the “Bonus Free Good” slots. There will be one queue for both types of Free Goods. 

What about items that were submitted to the Free Goods queue before the June 20 updates?
At this time, more than 6 months has passed since these changes were made, so all products submitted for Free Goods have either been featured or have timed out. If you submitted an item before June 20, 2017 and have not been featured, and you would like for it to be considered for both the Free Goods and the Bonus Free Goods slots, you can remove the item and resubmit it at any time.

What license comes with a Bonus Free Good?
All of the Free Goods are covered by the Standard License (with the exception of free Wordpress themes- those come with the GPL 2.0). When you download a Free Good, you receive 1 license that allows you to use that item in a single project or End Product.

Will Creative Market still offer 6 free goods each week?   
Yes, Creative Market and our generous Shop Owners will continue to offer 6 free goods each week. Bonus Free Goods are a little something extra available to qualified customers.
