In May 2022 alone, our engineers have delivered major product updates that drive Trolley toward our goal of creating the payouts platform for the internet economy.
Trolley provides ArtStation with a massive competitive advantage
A few hours
ArtStation (part of the Epic Games family) is the leading showcase platform for artists and designers in the games, film, media, and entertainment industry. From the beginning, ArtStation has been a place for these artists to showcase their work, discover other artists, and stay inspired. In 2018, ArtStation launched a marketplace to allow its users to sell their art and turned to Trolley to facilitate the payouts to artists for their art purchased on the ArtStation marketplace.
In addition to currency, geographic, and language challenges, ArtStation also wanted to offer their artists the option of both PayPal or direct deposit payouts. However, they did not want these options to add unnecessary levels of complexity.
Trolley helped us launch our new marketplace for our global artist community in record time.
Thanks to Trolley, we were able to offer superior payouts than our competitors right out of the gate.
By embedding the iFrame code, they were able to adjust the colors to match their brand and pass the logged-in artist's language preference to collect the artist's banking details or PayPal details in the language of their choice.
With Trolley, we don't have to worry about things like security. After dropping in the widget, artists can just enter all their payout information, and [we can easily) pay them. It's so simple; we couldn't believe it.
Once those milestones are reached, ArtStartion simply creates a payment in Trolley referencing their own internal user IDs (saved in Trolley's referenceld field), linked to payment details for that exact artist. Then Trolley processes the payment for ArtStation.
"Trolley gave us a massive competitive advantage. Out the gate, we're able to send payouts via direct deposit to our users globally, in local currency. We've had users compare us to competing platforms, saying that we leapfrogged them just because of this.
It's really like magic. Once sellers enter their payout information, a single API call can just send money direct to their bank accounts across the world.
