About Chip

Chip is an online platform that allows artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to create and sell custom-printed merchandise.

If you’re enjoying our custom domain feature, you’ll be charged an annual renewal fee of $20. Find more information about creating a custom domain here.

  1. To get started, we recommend checking out our blog post, How to Create a Custom Domain. To get more information about special tools and features, please visit our Getting Started and Tools & Features sections.

Campaign questions

A campaign represents all of the product offerings for a design(s). In order to make sales, you must first launch a campaign. Campaigns can have a wide range of product colors and pricing, all at the seller’s discretion. For more insights, please review our How to Create a Campaign blog post.

Every product has its own base price. You can find the complete list of products and base prices in our Product Catalog.

We accept .PNG files with a minimum DPI of 150 and a maximum area of 10,000px by 10,000px.

Campaigns are automatically relaunched every 24 hours. You do not have to relaunch campaigns manually. Chip provides daily fulfillment, which means faster delivery to your customers.

Every campaign on Chip has a unique URL, which means that URLs cannot be edited or reused in another campaign.

To edit a campaign, go to Campaigns > Details.

  • Click on Products to edit your campaign’s sale price, colors, product selection, and mockups. 
  • Click on Campaign Details to edit the campaign information, as well as the default color and side that is displayed.

To add or remove products from your campaign, go to Campaigns > Details (of a campaign) > Products.

  • To add products, click the “+ Add Product” button near the top-right corner.

Please note products cannot be removed if a campaign has already been launched.

Payout questions

To receive payouts, you must link your verified PayPal account to your Chip account. After linking, you have an option of receiving profit through PayPal, Payoneer, or wire transfer. 

If you live in a country where PayPal is not available, contact our support team at support@chipchip.com to find a solution. Learn more about Profits and Payments here.

Your first payout could take up to 5 days because of the initial review process. Once approved, please wait 1-2 hours for your transfer to complete (except for wire transfers, which usually take 2-5 business days). 

You do not have to wait for campaigns to finish or for customers to receive their orders in order to receive your payout. Profits become available to withdraw 24 hours after you make the sale. Learn more about Profits and Payments here.

Profits are calculated using the following formula:

Profit = (Revenue – Base Cost) * 93%

The processing fee is 7%, which is used to cover customer service cost, credit card processing fees, and fraud protection. All coupons are credited to sellers’ profits.

We require a $20 profit minimum for all payout requests. Learn more about Profits and Payments here.

The processing fee for transfers from your Chip account to your payment account is as follows:  

  • PayPal: $0*
  • Payoneer: $3*
  • Wire transfer: $25**

Notes: 

* Paypal/Payoneer: There may be additional charges when transferring funds from your payment account to your bank account using PayPal or Payoneer.

** Wire transfer: Failed wires (due to incorrect banking info provided by the seller) will incur a $50 penalty fee. If the seller wishes to re-send the wire, there will also be an additional $50 charge for administrative and re-wire fees.
