SexShop3D was started in July 2014 to offer a selection of sex toy models to customers who want to print their own sex toys using a 3D printer. It was founded by Tom Sancelot, a web designer with a passion for 3D printing.
In March 2015, SexShop3D became a 3D model marketplace where designers can register as sex toy creators in order to sell their work on the commission-based platform. The next month SexShop3D partnered with Authentise to provide secure streaming of 3D files. This partnership is part of SexShop3D’s commitment to offer a hassle-free shopping experience to its customers and to address designers’ concerns about file security.
In November 2015, the company started its own affiliate program. Affiliates receive a 20% commission for every sale they refer and designers receive a 65% commission.
