Log in using your normal username and password.
Then click "Account" and choose the "Settings" field.
You will now see your general settings. At the end of the drop-down menu, you will find a field called "Change account type". Click on it.
Now choose the field "I want to use Crazypatterns as an author.". This will make you an author on Crazypatterns. Confirm your changes using the blue button.

You ought to change your business settings before uploading your first tutorial. Click "Business settings" in order to do so.
The sub-point business settings lets you enter your USt-IDNr. You can also set if you are open to requests or orders from users. If you do not want this you can simply untick the box.

If you wish, you will receive a daily overview of your sold tutorials via e-mail. Just tick the box that says "summary".
Click the blue button in order to save your settings as soon as they fulfil your needs.
