The way CALA is able to offer 1MOQs and lightning fast production timelines, while maintaining relatively low production prices is by partnering with our creators, and sharing in revenue. CALA's goal is to Empower Creators Everywhere, and one way we try to do this is by keeping our up-front costs as low as possible, in favor of sharing in the revenue from your sales to your customers. Here's how it works:

  • You sign up for a CALA plan that has a subscription price and a revenue share %.

  • You design and purchase your collection from CALA.

  • CALA produces your collection, and then we help you fulfill orders to your customers.

  • Every month, we tally up any sales you've made in the previous month, and bill you for the agreed upon rev share % of those sales.

Here's an example:

  • John signs up for a CALA Creator plan at $500/month and 20% revenue share. This means that every month, John is paying a $500 subscription fee for access to the CALA platform, production, fulfillment, customer service and more. In addition, John has entered into an agreement with CALA that John keeps 80% of his revenue from sales, and CALA keeps 20%.

  • In January, John designs his collection in the CALA platform, and submits his collection for pricing by the CALA team.

  • The CALA team shows John that his collection will cost $1000.

  • John checks out for his collection on the CALA platform, and pays $1000 via credit card. The CALA team then gets to work on creating John's collection!

  • In March, John's collection is ready at the manufacturer, and CALA handles getting the goods from the manufacturer, sending them to one of our fulfillment warehouse, and CALA connects the warehouse to John's Shopify store.

  • In April, John is ready to launch his new collection, and makes them available for sale on his website. John sells out his new collection for $10,000 in revenue, and CALA makes sure all of John's customers receive their products.

  • In May, CALA bills John for 2 things: The 20% revenue share, and the cost to fulfill the orders to John's customers.

  • In this scenario, since John generated $10,000 in revenue, CALA would receive $2,000, which is 20% of $10,000.

  • In addition, it cost $750 to send John's customer's their product, so John would be billed for $750.

  • Overall, in May, John would receive an invoice from CALA for $2,750, which means that John kept $7,250 of his $10,000 in sales.
