Step 1: Create an author account

The first step is to create an account on our publishing site (where you are now!). Then you can begin submitting your ideas.

Step 2: Start a New Product Idea

Now you're ready to propose a product idea to the YCMT team. Your idea will be reviewed to determine if it has potential for listing on YouCanMakeThis.com. You'll describe the product, upload pictures, and upload any sample files.

If your idea is accepted, it moves on to the next phase in approval.

Step 3: Edit Product Details

Now its time to provide the real details so we can make a final approval. You'll provide final product details, like the required materials, the selling price, the description, and more. You will also upload your product photos and your finished product file.

If the product is approved for listing on the site a few more things have to happen!

Step 4: Author Documents

If you're a new author to YouCanMakeThis.com, we'll collect additional information from you to set up our relationship so we can pay you for your products. This includes accepting our user agreement and submitting a W9 form for tax purposes.
