Making money with Midjourney

Make Money with Midjourney AI

Generally speaking, when we talk about the whole AI industry the expectation is that it’s going to erase a lot of jobs and that is true at its core, but especially now there are more avenues and sources to make money with these modern AI technologies including Midjourney & other image generators. Now we are going to tell you some methods to create Passive income with Midjourney

If you are new to MJ I recommend checking the tutorial I made a while ago. For this article, we are going to focus solely on how to make money with this beautiful AI Image prompter known as Midjourney.


1) Selling Created/Prompted Images

If you are using a paid version of Midjourney (Which you probably are since currently trials have been suspended) you have the commercial rights to the images that you are creating, meaning you can sell them. Now there are a bunch of potential buyers when it comes to Logos, concept art, and other types of product designs, especially if you have some basic Photoshop skills and can edit images a bit too, there will be demand for these types of requests.

Now the big question is where can I exactly sell the Midjourney Art that I have generated? Well, there are multiple marketplaces where you can do this type of stuff, so here are some essential options you can try out!

  • Wirestock – Another excellent marketplace for any type of AI art whether its renders, vectors, concept art, or something else that are distributed to multiple platforms like Shutterstock, pond5, adobe, and Getty for instance.
  • Fiverr – The largest market there for all types of tasks out there, there are people who can make ~525$ a day by selling AI art they have prompted, however, there is a lot of competition in terms of other sellers flooding the market, so you have to get few orders in to get good ratings and then you can proceed to get more frequent customers asking you to create stuff.
  • PixelClerk – This alternative doesn’t have yet lot of AI artists selling their stuff, making it an excellent option for people who want to corner a market, plus you can offer lower-cost services and pay less in fees compared to Fiverr (Selling logos, for instance, a good focus area)
  • PeoplePerHour – Another Fiverr-style marketplace that doesn’t have a lot of Digital artists creating AI Art yet, so a market that doesn’t have much competition altogether has options to also charge by the hour then per gig/task.
  • SaachiArt – This site is fully focused on selling art both physical and digital – it might be another great location to consider selling some Midjourney-generated Art instead of doing requests on the marketplaces above
  • Etsy – Now Etsy can be used to sell out printed material with your MJ-generated art, but you also have a lot of niche markets to sell out specific AI art like stickers, transparent PNG’s among other things you can look into

Remember: You don’t have to sell at just one platform you can try different niches on different websites and see which method makes the most money and keep doing that (or just keep doing all if they work).

2) Selling Physical Goods of your Generated Images

Putting aside digital sales of art, there is also the possibility of selling physical mugs, canvases, t-shirts, and other products that are using your generated prompt images. There are luckily a couple of these services which allow you to sell this stuff and you don’t have to actually take care of any shipping or creating these physical products. These services are gonna handle all that stuff for you for free.

  • Printful – If you are looking for an apparel marketplace that has lot of variety this is definitely one of the options you should consider since they got vast selection of goods and they got a rather neat print-on-demand model compared to the rest.
  • Redbubble – This one is a huge marketplace with massive amounts of users and you can sell a bunch of different things including stickers, prints, all types of apparel from Hats to Hoodies, Phone cases, Wall art, Clocks, mugs, magnets, shower curtains, tapestries, blankets, pillows, pet supplies, pins, socks, water bottles, masks, backpacks and much more, they give default 20% commission, but this varies depending on how much you’re pricing your product on the platform.
  • Society6 – Here, you can sell a bunch of different branded goods using the image you have prompted with MJ including things like Wall art, home decor, bedding, tech accessories, apparel, bags and so much more. You receive 10% of each sale excluding art/canvas prints and framed prints which allows your own custom markup.
  • Zazzle – Another marketplace that has a high focus on gift products that vary from office tools, wedding cards, mugs, pillows, and much else can be found on their website (there is a separate UK version of the site alongside international one).

3) Selling AI Prompts

Another cool method that I wasn’t aware of until recently was “Prompt selling”, so if you’re really good at creating MJ prompts that look cool, you have the opportunity to sell your prompts, including ChatGPT style prompts as well. While this is still a niche, I’m positive that this little market will keep expanding for a few years and there will be more marketplaces where you can sell prompts at.

  • Promptbase – So this site allows you to sell prompts for various AI services including Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, ChatGPT & DALL-E the minimum price you can set on the platform is 1.99$ which I would argue is a decent price and you can ask high as 20.99$ out of this the Promptbase takes 20% cut of your sales (after you have done 5 sales you are also able to accept custom prompt payments on the platform).
  • Gumroad – A General marketplace for all types of digital goods and there isn’t a lot of competition here right now when it comes to selling prompts or AI-generated images, so you might want to take a look at this.
  • Neutronfield – Another one that allows you to sell prompts for money and they support the following platforms: DALL-E, Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, Disco Diffusion, and Craiyon. They do not say in the FAQ how much cut % they take from each sale done on the platform.
  • – If you want to hand out free prompts and also sell them you might want to consider Prompti as an option (no information about the commissions can be found on their website as of now).
  • PromptSea – A Crypto based alternative that allows you to mint your prompts as NFTs an issue, for instance, a limited supply the data is semi-private according to them what is stored in these NFTs, and far as I know there aren’t any fees for selling on this marketplace your prompts from any AI platform.

4) Selling Courses on How to do Midjourney Prompts

If you really are a master at creating prompts with MJ, I think there might be a chance for you to sell out a course on how to get started and show some tips and tricks in order to get the best prompts possible. There aren’t marketplaces that are specialized in this niche but there are a few places where you can sell all types of courses, which could be things to start from.

  • Udemy – is a popular marketplace for buying courses on all types of subjects from coding, mathematics, music, design, and languages you name it. There are few people currently selling out prompt courses there as of right now. You will get 97% revenue when a student purchases your course and 37% when someone else does.
