Prints Update

Journal Entry: Thu May 13, 2010, 10:25 AM

*So anyway, we've now added some of our favorite prints to be available again. For now, this is all we have available, as we're looking into other print services still to see if DA is where we'd continue to be most happy selling our work. However, if you'd like us to make a certain print available again just tell us and we will.  

Update - Apparently there was a memo sent out about this? We missed this, as we've had a busy month and simply probably didn't notice it or read it. This is a default thing now, even on the prints we've had up forever? Well, we're super unhappy then and we'll look into other print services, because honestly it took forever to get all the prices set the way we wanted them and we don't want to go back through 300 prints and change the prices so that we make more than 50 cents. :(

We're sorry to anyone who is wanting to support us and buy our prints. We've just had to disable them. For some reason, the prices we have had set forever were changed to a very low profit on every single one of our photos. We sold three prints for less than a dollar apiece, which obviously was a big enough profit loss for us to anger us, since we're by no means rich. I don't know if this is a glitch but a Help report has been filed. Otherwise, we've been hacked. Our password has been changed.
    In the meantime, obviously we aren't going to allow prints to be sold at that profit rate of less than a dollar for decent sized prints, so we are not offering prints at this time until it's fixed. We don't have the time to go through each print one by one and fix all the prices. :(

To my knowledge i've never sold a print so have not been affected by this, sounds like a glitch from them updating the system. funny how glitches are always in their favour and never ours, maybe im just cynical :giggle:

I can't believe they'd change the prices like that, without notice... totally unfair! I hope that you get it all figured out soon! I was honestly going to look into buying some of your prints the other day, as we need to decorate our new apartment!

I would rather buy directly from you guys (because I know where the money will be headed) than through DA. I am thinking of going back to CafePress. Much easier, I think.

I've just noticed there is an "update all royalties at once" button unerneith all of the price change option place. You still have to do it one picture at a time but at least you don't have to go through every button you can do it all at once so that is SOMETHING ..... I think.

Drat, I guess it's back to buying directly from artists instead of buying prints from DA.

I sell prints through my website using an affliate program with another company. Happy to note you the details if that helps. :rose:

When I saw that news about lowering prices I thought that they had some kind of a deal with all artists and applied that change. It is not fair for them to set your profit without even bothering informing you. I mean other information than a simple news! It is your own piece of art :S Weird idea of them to attract the art lovers since they can lose many valuable artists. Shame.

I really hope you can find a way out of this or they would set everything back to how it was :nod:

heh I just noticed this as well. I saw that they posted a notice about it a few weeks ago...but all I saw was something about us making more profit, which honestly this is the complete opposite so I didnt read all of it :hmm: I sold a print a few days ago and noticed I only made about a $1 also, which I thought was weird, cause I should've made about $3 or $4, but I didnt think anything of it at the time. But a 9x12inch print sold for only $7, and I originally had it for $ whoever bought it got a good deal I guess...the artists sure aren't though.

They better fix this, or at least have the option of setting ALL prints to whatever % you want...I'm changing mine to my profits being 60% but having to go through all of them is kind of a pain :stab:
