…In order to submit your game to Steam, you…have to submit it to a service called Greenlight.…Let's walk through the process of submitting your product.…So first thing you're going to want to do is,…once you load up Steam, go to Community > Greenlight.…Next, click Submit your product.…This will bring you to an area where you can choose…to submit a Greenlight item or you can submit a concept.…You'll see down here that a concept actually doesn't require a fee and it can…be a great way to just test out an idea and see if people like it.…
Now, I'm going to go back up to the…top and we're going to actually submit an item.…So I'll go to pay now.…Now, Valve charges you a one-time fee of $100 to submit any game to Steam.…The great thing about this, though, is that you can submit…as many games as you want through the life of your account.…So, this isn't $100 every time, this is $100 once, and…then you can post 10 games, 20 games, however much you want.…And all the proceeds, minus the taxes and how…much it cost to operate, go directly to Child's Play.…
