Greetings from pixiv.
The new Requests feature was released on September 30th (Wed), 2020, on the mobile version and desktop version of pixiv, enabling creators to receive requests from their fans in return for a fee.
To celebrate the release of the new feature, starting from release day you will be able to take advantage of the "Start co-requesting works now!" event and join in on requests sent to six popular creators by pixiv's official profile. Moreover, we are discounting the commission on requests from 10% to 3.99% and returning a part of the commission to the creator as part of our "Thank-you campaign! 3.99% commission promotion".

About the Requests feature and co-requesting a work with others
By turning on the Requests feature, creators will be able to solicit creative requests from their fans on pixiv in return for a fee. Creators can set a "target price" for their requests in advance. Fans can request work they would like to see come to life by the hands of creators who have activated the Requests feature.
Creators can choose the requests they would like to take on among all the requests received and start working on them. Requests are then completed by posting the finished work on the creator's profile page or by posting them as URL-restricted works that can only be accessed from those who sent the request.
Requests that are taken on via the Requests feature can be fully completed on pixiv. Creators solicit paid requests, choose which requests they would like to take on, and publish their work to be delivered to their fans, all of which happens on pixiv. The Requests feature is compatible with all four types of works that can be posted on pixiv: illustrations, manga, novels, and Ugoira.
What's unique about this feature is the possibility to "co-request" a work, a way for fans to enjoy requests together. By offering the same amount of money as the original request, fans can join in on requests they like and co-request them. This way, once the request is completed, they will also be able to receive gift files from the creator.
After completing a request, creators receive all the money coming from the request itself and co-requests (excluding the service usage fees).
Thanks to the Co-request feature, not only can creators gather more support and sympathy for their own creations from their fans, but those who find it difficult to think of requests can have an easier time participating!
pixiv's new Requests feature was developed with the intention of providing a place where creators and fans' passions can connect and everyone can enjoy creative activities.
