What is an End Product?

An End Product is a product you will create from the asset(s) you purchased on Creative Market. 


How can I use the assets available on Creative Market?

Personal Use:

  • End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased.
  • End Products must not redistribute the original item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original item.

Commercial License:

  • End Products (i) be significantly different than the original Licensed Asset, (ii) require time, effort, and skill to produce and (iii) not derive its primary value from the Licensed Asset itself.
  • End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased.
  • End Products must not redistribute the original item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original item.

Extended Commercial License:

  • End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased.
  • End Products must not redistribute the original iItem to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original iItem.

What does Personal use mean?

For a use to be considered “Personal” it must meet ALL THREE of the following:

  • The use must not involve an exchange of money
  • The use must not promote a business entity (including non-profit businesses)
  • The use must not directly or indirectly result in financial gain

If a use results in one or more of the above, it is deemed “commercial” use. (see Commercial license FAQ or Extended Commercial license FAQ)


Do I need a Commercial license or an Extended Commercial license?

You will need a Commercial license or an Extended Commercial license if your use of the licensed asset:

  • Involves an exchange of money for the work created
  • Promotes a business entity, such as a proprietorship, corporation, or non-profit
  • Or, where financial gain is an intended result, directly or indirectly.

Do I need more than one seat?

The Creative Market License covers one user per license. You will need a license for each user that has access to the stock asset.


What use cases are authorized by these licenses?

Each license comes with specific restrictions. It's important to fully read the terms of the license you purchase:

You may also read our license FAQ articles:

The Creative Market License never allows for assets to be used in ways that are directly competitive with the Shop or in uses that are fraudulent, illegal, or make the asset available to unlicensed users or the public.


❌ At no time can you:

  • Resell or sub-License the Licensed Asset as in a way that is directly competitive with the original Licensed Asset.
  • Resell any modification of the asset on its own.
  • Make the asset public or share the asset in any way.
  • Use the Licensed Asset in pornographic, fraudulent, immoral, infringing, illegal, harassing, offensive, or defamatory material, is strictly prohibited
  • Falsely represent authorship and/or ownership of the Licensed Asset
  • Any other use that is not expressly permitted in the license terms (Permitted Uses and Quantity/Impression Limitations) is strictly prohibited.

What if I need an asset for something that is prohibited?

You can review each license and what’s allowed here. If the Extended Commercial license does not allow for your use, please contact Creative Market to inquire about a Custom License.
