There are three basic steps that you need to take in order to get icons:

  1. Sign up 

  2. Search for icons 

  3. Checkout

1. Where to start

Create an account on Iconfinder. Once you have created an account, there are lots of icons waiting to be discovered. You can search for icons using keywords or you can browse the different styles and categories. 

2. Search for icons 

Type the keywords in the search field on the homepage. 

Refine the results: use the filter menu on the left to select between paid icons or free icons, filter by format, style, and license type. If you are not sure what icon format to use: What icon format is suitable for my intended use?

Add to collections: When you click on an icon you can see more information about it. You can save the icons that you like for finding them later by clicking on the small bookmark icon that accompanies each icon. All icons you have bookmarked can be found under the Collections tab. Read more about Collections here.

Your Account is the place to find your Order history and your Transactions

Access your Downloads and icon Collections from the dropdown menu under your gravatar. 

3. Checkout: Pay-as-you-go or Subscribe?


When you have found the icons that you need, you can click on the Add to cart button for each icon and they will be added to your shopping cart. You can do so when clicking on an icon in the search results or from the Icon details page. 

Once you have finished adding icons to your shopping cart, you can proceed to checkout. For that, click on Proceed to Checkout button. You can pay with credit card, Paypal or with your account balance.  The system will automatically ask you to make a prepayment. The more money you prepay, the bigger bonus you'll get.

Pro subscriptions

Another way to get icons is subscriptions. Subscriptions are monthly auto-renewing plans which give access to download a number of icons. See the available subscriptions here.

  • Pro Micro: $9/ month for 10 downloads. Unused downloads will roll over for the next month. You can also add team members to your plan.

  • Pro Starter: $19 /month for 50 downloads. Unused downloads will roll over for the next month. You can also add team members to your plan.

  • Pro Unlimited: $49 /month for unlimited downloads. It allows to download entire icon sets, it includes downloads in Iconjar format and the option to add team members to the subscription plan.

You can choose to subscribe annually and get 2 months for free. Just check the annual billing option on the checkout page.

All unused downloads are rolled over for the following month, unless the subscription is cancelled. If you cancel, the remaining downloads will be available only until the subscription expires (that is, the last day of the period you paid for). On the expiry date, the unused downloads will expire too. Read more about Roll-over downloads.

Before using the icons, make sure to check out their license agreement. To learn more about licenses available on Iconfinder, check this License overview.
