What is Madebyteachers?
Madebyteachers is a community of educators who create and share new insightful resources with each other. Through our collective experiences, we seek to make learning better for all our students and children.
Why does the website look different today?
We’ve proudly just launched a new and much improved website. Now, finding resources is easier, and more educators can join as sellers by opening their own shop. We think the website looks better, too.
How can I join?
Joining is free. Click the Register link in at the top of the webpage. If you only want to download the free resources or make purchases, then fill in the Create an Account form. You will need to enter a Username, valid Email Address, and Password to join as a regular member. Next, click Register and your account will be created.
If you want to become a seller, you can take that step now or later.
- If you want to join as a seller for free when first creating your account, then click the red link “Click here to create a Seller account“. You will create your new account and seller account using the form that appears. Fill in all the fields on this page. You can read more about being a seller by clicking Learn About Our Plans. Choose your Vendor Shop Name carefully because this cannot be easily changed later. Also, you will need a PayPal account to become a seller and receive payments. We only payout royalties using PayPal. If you don’t yet have a PayPal account, you’ll need to set that up first.
- If you join as a regular member first, then you can upgrade to a seller account from your Dashboard page once you’ve logged in.
How Is Sales Tax Handled?
Sales tax will be collected on sales in some states as required. Not all states charge sales tax on digital products. As a publisher of digital products through our marketplace, we submit the taxes collected to states, so our sellers don’t need to. Sellers who sell on other platforms, such as your own blog, are responsible for collecting and submitting taxes on sales outside of our website if you have nexus in that state. You can view the number of sales for each state on your seller dashboard. Read more about Nexus from online tax companies like Taxjar or Avalara.
How Do I Download My Purchases?
After you make a purchase on Madebyteachers.com, you can access your downloads from the Receipts page that appears after a purchase or by clicking My Purchases on the dropdown menu on top of the webpage. To access the dropdown menu, move your cursor over your account name in the red menu bar at the top of the webpage. Once you see your list of purchases, just click the bright red button to download (not the red text link). You can also always view your receipt and access the product download button from your My Account page.
How do I contact support?
If you are logged in, then contacting support is easy and quick. There is a Contact Support link at the bottom of your Dashboard. Logged in users get a quicker reply. If the request is made on a regular workday, then we will try to reply the same day but depending on the numbers of support requests it may day longer. Visitors who are not logged in will find the Contact Support link at the bottom of the page.
How do I delete my account and data?
How to Change My Paypal Email
Sellers can change their Paypal email address for receiving monthly payouts by using the contact form and requesting a change. You must include your contact email address that is connected to your account or your shop name in the request, so that we can verify and confirm the change. After you contact us and we verify the email is on file for your shop, we will send a confirmation email to your current shop email address with instructions for confirming the change.
