About Quirky

Quirky is the only brand that makes products invented by real people like you.

We exist to create great products because we believe great ideas don’t come from the board room - they come from the living room. Quirky wants to empower inventors and those inspired by everyday challenges to create a better "insert product here". You can find our products on the shelves of major retailers all over the world, and our inventors too (not on the shelves, just all around the world).

We all have a great product idea. Quirky wants to make it a great product. We make invention accessible®

So How Much Will Quirky Pay Me If They Pick My Product?

Here's an example

  • 1.

    If your product gets made by Quirky you'll receive a 1.5% royalty on the wholesale price of your invention.

  • 2.

    The wholesale price is set at $20.00 per unit. This means for every single unit that is sold you'll make 1.5% of $20, which is $0.30.

  • 3.

    If retailers buy 100,000 units of your invention you'll earn $30,000! You'll receive payment 4x per year for the sales of the previous quarter.
