Developer Agreement

Please note that this agreement only applies to users who are selling products on Coded.

Welcome to the Coded community! We’re glad you’re here. Coded is a community of designers, developers, and makers from all of the world. We collaborate and share our work and ideas across dozens of languages in over 150 countries. We respect each other and hold each other accountable to a high standard both as individuals and as makers. Some rules that we expect you to follow as a member of the Coded community are outlined in this Developer Agreement.

Before joining Coded as a developer, you, the user whose details are listed as the account holder, agreed to the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy of The Hummingbird Group, Inc. (“Coded”, “we” and/or “Hummingbird”). This Developer Agreement applies exclusively to users who intend to sell their products on Coded. When submitting a product for sale on Coded, you agree to these terms.

Joining Coded as a developer is free. When a buyer purchases a license to use your products, we will charge a developer fee of 10% of the sale price of the license. Sometimes, we may adjust the listed price of your product to attract buyers. This price adjustment may be seen as a coupon, discount, sale, or limited offer. Coded tries to offer the highest commission rates of any creative marketplace. This means that you earn 90% of the sale price of your product. For example, if you list your product for $10, we may sell a license to your product for any amount between $8 and $12. If a buyer purchases your product for $10, your Coded account will be credited for $9. However, if a buyer purchases your product for $8 because we have adjusted the sale price of your product, your Coded account will be credited $7.20. By using this price optimization method, we can increase earnings for developers and attract more buyers to the Coded community. This means higher earnings for you over time.

When a buyer purchases a license on Coded, they purchase in United States Dollars. After the purchase is confirmed, your Coded account will be credited in United States Dollars. When you make a withdrawal from your Coded account, the withdrawal will be made in United States Dollars. If you live in a country other than the United States of America, we will charge a 2% fee in accordance with our International Funds Transfer Policy. You are responsible for converting your earnings to your desired currency and Coded is not responsible for fees from your financial institution for this conversion.
