If you are already a contributor or you are thinking about applying to collaborate with us, please read the following information before sending your first resources.
We hope it helps!
- What should be the subject of my content?
There is no specific subject or topic to follow, you are free to create whatever you think would be useful to our users. However, we suggest that you have a look at our website and take into consideration the kind of resources that are being published.
- How many icons do I need to upload to become a contributor?
To become a contributor, you need to send at least one pack with a minimum of 20 icons, although you can upload up to 6 packs. Our team will then decide if your images meet the standars for you to be accepted as a contributor so you can continue uploading your work.
- How do I send my content for review?
If you decide to become a "Contributor", please register, read and accept our terms and conditions (contract), provide us with all the details required and start uploading your resources.
Your first upload will be reviewed by our team and if the aesthetic and quality standards are met, you will be able to start your collaboration with us.
We suggest that, for this first test, you choose your 6 more relevant packs. Adding a link to your online portfolio in the profile section of your contributor panel can help you to pass the test.
- What happens if my first 6 packs are rejected?
If your first 6 packs do not meet our aesthetic and quality standards, and we do not accept you as a contributor, your request will be rejected and your account will be blocked, so you will not be able to send more packs. Therefore it is very important to ensure that you sent your most relevant icons for this first test, to show us the quality and technique you are best at, increasing the chances to be selected as a contributor.
- How much money will I get for my resources?
The contributor model is based in the earnings accumulated from the number of downloads of your resources published at Flaticon. Please note that all the icons uploaded by our contributors will be marked as premium content.
There is not a fixed price for the download of an icon. This is how your earnings from downloads will be calculated:
At the end of each day, we will calculate the total amount of subscription fees and the "per diem" subscription amount. Then we will calculate the total number of downloads. The total daily subscription average will be divided by the number of downloads to calculate the "per icon" price for that day. That number will be multiplied by 0.5 to calculate the 50% rate.
- What do I need to know about the invoicing of my income derived from the service and content provided?
All income shown in your Freepik Company collaborator panel is prior to the application of taxes. It is after generating the invoice when you will get the final amount, which will vary depending on the particular tax situation of each collaborator.

- Which payments methods are accepted?
At Flaticon we accept Paypal and Payoneer as valid payment methods for our contributors. We inform you that each method requires a minimum amount of earnings that must be reached for the invoices to be generated.
- Paypal: 100 USD/EUR minimum required
- Payoneer: 50 USD/EUR minimum required
Please note that no other payment methods are available at this moment.
- How would I get paid and how often?
Payments always correspond to the downloads registered until two months earlier. So for instance, in March we pay the earnings accumulated for the downloads until the end of January, in May we pay the earnings accumulated for the downloads until the end of March, etc.
You must keep in mind that invoices will be generated 2 months after you reached the minimum amount required (50 USD/EUR if you have Payoneer as payment method, 100 USD/EUR if you have Paypal).
- Invoice generation: each month on the 4th.
- Invoice validation: each month between the 4th and the 9th.
- Invoice payment: each month between the 10th and the 15th.
- Who can download my icons?
Since all the icons published by our contributors will be marked as Premium, only Premium users will be able to download your icons.
- Are my resources protected against plagiarism?
- Is there a time period in which to send my icons?
From the moment you create your contributor account you have 40 days to upload your first 6 packs. If you do not send anything in this period, your account will be temporarily deactivated. However, you will be able to reactivate it message you will see when trying to access your account, as indicated in the screenshot below:
Once your first pack is published, there is no deadline to send your files by. Bear in mind that the sooner you send your files, the sooner your content will be uploaded and you can start earning money.
