DAZ 3D offers an Exclusive Licensing Agreement to all artists whose submitted work is accepted. This agreement contains arrangements for a 50% royalty to be paid to the legal licensor/artist each month. This agreement requires that the artist's licensed products be sold exclusively by DAZ 3D, Inc. via DAZ 3D's online store. Please contact the DAZ 3D publishing Department via pa@daz3d.com for further information regarding such an agreement.

DAZ 3D offers Bonuses - The top 15 artists each month receive a 15% bonus, the top 16-30 Artists receive a 10% bonus. This is based on the previous 3 months of sales.

DAZ 3D will also offer the following services as listed below:
