Exclusivity: Hive offers limited seats to their premium catalogs. While they do have a basic catalog that anyone can subscribe to, the premium catalogs are exclusive to ensure the market isn't saturated with numerous sellers offering the same designs. 2. Support Systems: Hive is dedicated to helping its sellers grow. They provide tools and have established a community to support this growth. 3. High-Quality Media Content: Hive places a strong emphasis on providing high-quality media content. They recognize the importance of media in today's product selling landscape and work diligently to offer top-notch content to their sellers.
What are the different Hive Commercial License Plans?Hive offers several Commercial License Plans tailored to different needs: Starter Hive: This is for beginners who want to explore the platform. It provides a large collection of models without royalties and comes with limited media content.

It offers a vast collection of designs without royalties or exclusivity. Available at an affordable price, it allows users to explore various designs and discover their best sellers.

What is Hive+? How do I sell products of a specific designer?Hive+ is an upgraded plan that provides access to a premium designer catalog. It's ideal for those who've moved beyond the initial stages of the Hive universe and have a specific designer in mind they want to collaborate with. By subscribing to Hive+, you essentially become a franchise for that designer's products, allowing you to work closely with both the seller community and the designer. This close collaboration helps you grow alongside the designer's product line.
What is HiveUnlimited? Can I get access to all of the designer Catalogs?HiveUnlimited is designed for more established 3D or e-commerce businesses. It offers: 1. Access to all of the Hive Plus catalogs. 2. Exclusivity, with only 50 unlimited members allowed worldwide at any given time. 3. Premium support from Hive. So, yes, with HiveUnlimited, you get access to all the designer catalogs available under Hive Plus.
Where can I sell 3D Printed Hive Products?With the Hive commercial licensing, sellers have the flexibility to sell 3D Printed Hive Products wherever they see fit. This includes: * E-commerce platforms * Etsy * Other marketplace platforms * Directly to businesses * Flea markets * Fairs * Farmers markets The licensing provides sellers with the autonomy to freely market and sell from the Hive catalog wherever their buyers are located.
Can I use the designer brand / my own brand for selling Hive products?Yes, you have the flexibility with Hive products. You can: 1. Use the actual brand of the designer. 2. White label the products under your own brand name. 3. Add logos or tags to the designs. However, sometimes using the designer's brand might be beneficial as they may already have established credibility. Alternatively, you can even use the Hive brand name. The choice is entirely up to you.
What are Trust Based royalty payments? Do I need to pay royalties?"Cubee Trust" is Hive's system for premium catalogs where sellers pay a 10% royalty to designers monthly. This approach limits the number of sellers per catalog, reducing competition and ensuring quality. The shared sales data offers insights into popular products, guiding sellers on what to prioritize. If you sell from a premium catalog, you owe royalties to the designer.
How do I pay royalties? How does it work?Royalties are paid through Hive's "Cubee Trust" system. Each month, sellers input their sales data into Hive's software, which calculates the royalty amount. A payment link is generated, and the payment is sent to the designer. Hive then uses this aggregated sales data to inform the community about market trends.
Do I need to provide credits for Hive products I post?Yes, when posting a Hive product online, it's beneficial to give credit to the designer. This can increase your exposure, especially if the designer decides to repost your picture. Additionally, it's recommended to mention that you're a Hive-authorized seller. This ensures that you and others know you're not infringing on any rights. Hive protects its designs and enforces copyright infringement.
what is the Hive seller community? Why do I need it?The Hive seller community is a collaborative platform where sellers from around the world come together to share knowledge and experiences. Recognizing that challenges faced by one seller might be similar to another's, the community promotes collaboration over competition. Hive believes in achieving its vision through collective effort, and the community plays a pivotal role in that. The community operates primarily through a Discord server, facilitating connections between manufacturers, 3D printers, and designers. They also host webinars and events, fostering learning and collective growth in the 3D printing business. Joining this community can accelerate your growth by leveraging shared experiences and insights.
What are the Private Catalogs? How does it work?Private Catalogs are exclusive designer collections outside the standard Cubee Hive offerings, featuring high-end products. With only 15 available seats, sellers get geographical exclusivity, ensuring minimal competition and maximizing growth potential with these premium items.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?You can cancel your subscription at any time by logging into your account via each plan's dashboard and following the instructions.
