Core features 💻
Upload video & photo of the creations
- Creators post their creations-art, music, photography, video, anything-and their followers repost them. This is how creations proliferate across the App network and how creators expand their digital reach.
List and sell creations
- Creators list their creations for sale for as little as $1 and specify a royalty they would like to collect with each subsequent deal. Collectors buy pieces using US dollars without needing digital wallets. Then each time a creation resells, its creator receives the specified royalty-automatically!
Work with galleries and curators
- Galleries and curators cultivate relationships with creators and expand their digital reach across the CreatoRanch network. Creators can share sale proceeds with any gallery or curator they work with. It's easy: A creator specifies the percentage a curator will receive on a primary sale and CreatoRanch credits them once again, automatically.
Collect and trade creations
- Collectors acquire and sell creations they bought by re-listing. Collectors establish and expand their digital reach. It's easy, and so they can transact frequently. The app charges just 2.5% per secondary market transaction plus mandatory card fees.
