Default New to SpreadShirt and confused

I just signed up at Spreadshirt and I am so confused. I've had a CP shop for a few years now and decided to expand to other POD's.
So I am familiar with a lot of things but a few I am confused on is this-

When I added a few designs to the marketplace it asked for the "design commission". I added a dollar amount. Then when I added the designs (on products) to my store, it asked for a shop commission. I put in a dollar amount. Now when I am looking at the prices of my products I am in shock of the prices....lol It shows the design commission and the shop commission. What's the difference. I don't want a $40 t-shirt. I want the t-shirt to be marked up to say $8. But when you add the 2 commissions together it is showing $16. What should I putting in the commission amount- meaning, what is the price the customer will pay (I only want to make $8 commission on a customers order). What is the design commission?

By adding the design to the marketplace, it states that other members can use the design. Does that mean they (members) can take that design and place it on any product they like and if it sales I get a commission? Or does it mean the customer can place it on any product they choose? This really has me confused. I am used to the way CP does it- I add it to the products and customers/affiliates pick one of those products. They cna't actually take my design and add it to any product they like.

One other thing- At CP you are very limited with a basic shop. It seems like with SS you can have a basic shop and add as many designs and products as you like? If that's the case, is it worth opening a premium shop?

Sorry for so many questions but I really want to make this work.
Thanks in advance for any help
