CGTrader, a peer-to-peer 3D content online marketplace, has left beta mode and is now operating under enhanced security requirements. The marketplace now fully ensures the security of 3D models uploaded for sale by artists as well as the reliability of financial transactions.
The stable mode brings many security improvements and bug fixes, related to an increase in visitor traffic. Besides, an external Revit browser has been integrated which now enables Revit users to publish 3D models directly from the Autodesk Revit user interface.
“After a successful beta test we have succeeded in reaching the objectives in the user security, fast interface and customer orientation fields”, said Marius Kalytis, a co-founder of CGTrader. “Our technology and processes now meet business and security requirements of an online marketplace for computer graphics artists”.
CGTrader is the only 3D marketplace in the world based on peer-to-peer transactions between sellers and buyers. This cooperation model enables any artist to receive full amount paid by the customer straight to the Paypal account in seconds after the customer completed the purchase. CGTrader has developed a unique flat-fee based system which allows artists to earn nearly 100% from the sale of 3D models.
“Our further developments are focused on speeding up the uploading and product description processes. We know how busy the artists are, so we work to adjust to their busyness”, said Marius Kalytis. He says the new publisher that CGTrader’s developers are now working on will make this marketplace the fastest in terms of uploading 3D models.
“We also strive to improve the visibility of sellers on the Internet, so we suggest putting links to their websites, blogs or personal galleries. The higher the credibility of an artist is, the more sales he makes”, said Marius Kalytis.
Since the start of open beta, designers worldwide have already uploaded 1,500 3D objects to cgtrader.com. The leading studios CGShape and NoneCG were among the first big market players to trust in CGTrader and they now use it as a significant sales channel.
The peer-to-peer marketplace outbids the old fashioned shops with a list of additional benefits. Using this platform, artists are able to earn up to 100% of royalties as CGTrader does not charge any commission. In addition, there are no minimum limits set for the accumulation of purchases: artists get all the sum at once in seconds after the purchase. Artists are now aware of the particular buyer of their products, so they can better meet customer needs.

Founded in 2011 by former CG artists, CGTrader is developing a peer-to-peer online marketplace for 3D artists where they sell and buy Revit and 3D models. The marketplace http://www.cgtrader.com has been created to meet a significant need of the 3D community for fair trade in CG content with no middlemen participation in the supply chain.
