Creator Details

Add the email you used to create your account. We’ll use this email for all correspondence regarding your products, and to notify you when it’s been approved.

Product Details

  • Product Order Card 

When customers purchase your product, they receive the order card PDF that contains the link to your Notion template. Custom order cards are a great way to give your customer a great experience. We recommend keeping the design minimal and adding a simple “thank you” message.

If you don’t have an existing order card, don’t worry, our team will create one for you. 

Before uploading your card, ensure you're uploading the correct card for the product you’re submitting and that the link works. 

  • Product URL 

To review your submission, you’ll need to provide the link to your Notion template or cloud file (Google Drive or Dropbox). 

No links to Gumroad product listings or your own website.

  • Product Title 

Product titles display underneath your product image on the home page, and at the top of the product page. You’re allowed 100 characters for your product title. We recommend having clear titles that describe what your product is and to include your main keyword. 

  • Product Summary 

Product summaries are displayed directly underneath your product title on the product page. The summary is a brief sentence or two that describes what your product is and who it serves. Try to make your summary no shorter than 30 characters and no longer than 120.

  • Product Description 

Your product description displays directly below your product images. Keep the description within the 500 character limit. 

Your product description can be HTML formatted so make use of headers, bullet or numbered lists, bolding, and links to your supporting resources like Youtube videos or blogs. 

Here’s a more indepth article with tips to create high quality product copy and how you can use formatting in your product descriptions on NotionUtopia.

  • Price

Our marketplace shows all product prices in USD ($) as whole numbers. If you’ve previously sold your product in another currency please convert it to the nearest USD amount. 

To ensure all our creators earn from their products, we don’t allow products to be priced below 2 USD. 

Pre-ordering

If you’re listing a product on pre-order it allows customers to purchase your product, usually at a reduced price, before you’ve officially launched it. Once your product officially goes live, all the customers who’ve bought your product will receive their order.

Select if you’d like to list your product on pre-order, add the date you want it to go live, and lastly add your launch time along with your time zone. 

Example: Launch date is 14 February 2022 at 10 PM, in Paris. 02/14/2022 10:00 PM CET

When you add a product on preorder on NotionUtopia, we can help promote your product and add unique features to your product page. 

Organization

Our marketplace has built in features that make the shopping experience unique based on every shopper. We use the organization to help create this tailored experience and provide customers the option to search for specific Notion products. 

If a customer is interested in business related templates, they can browse that specific collection. When they view a product, other complimentary products are suggested to them.
