Pricing Help

Posted by: Julian Elliott on 06/19/2013 - 12:33 PM

Hi there

I have set minimum prices as default for all of my work but it doesn't seem to reflect this when I look on the site.

For example, I set the price for the smallest size at 20.00. But is this in dollars; euros; GBP etc?

Are these default prices for Art Prints? Could someone help as i don't want to be selling my work for peanuts.

I see $82 for your smallest print, your fee.

That seems pretty it's not


Posted by: Julian Elliott on 06/19/2013 - 12:48 PM

Hmm, that's not right. I see it as $12.00 for an 8 x 5.38.

Default pricing is done in US dollars.

Your smallest price is now at $32 (total to the customer) - which is fine.

Make sure you are logged out when you check your price or you see your price to BUY the print

I see $32 which would be correct if priced at $20

The prices you SEE can be in Euros - that can be changed at the top right in the drop down. But when you set your prices it is done in US dollars.
The prices you see on your page are what YOU pay to buy your own work, not the price the customers see. If you click on the link that says "See Price Details" under the price, it will show you everything. You can also see this by logging out and going to your profile.

One thing I was going to ask. Peter, you mention that if I am setting my price at $20 and they sell at $32, what is the percentage they are adding on?


Posted by: Julian Elliott on 06/19/2013 - 1:01 PM

Oh, and it seems my thanks didn't turn up in this posting.

Thanks all for the quick responses:)

I'm not sure what's going on...I still see his smallest price set at $82.

FAA does not add on a percentage. They have a fee for production, then you add your fee on top of that.

You're welcome Julian. =)

Hi. I'm a newbie and haven't uploaded anything yet. I've looked at several discussions, read the FAA page on pricing, etc., and I'm still just a wee bit lost. Angelina, you say they have a production fee and I add my price to that. Where do I find out what the production fee is? I too, thought they added a percentage, and then the cost to matt, frame and ship added to that. Any help will much appreciated.

The print prices are a collaboration of

1. What you put in your markup. That is what you will actually earn for a sale. This is the amount you enter in the spaces provided after each size. If you do not enter a price you want there they will not show up for sale
2. Plus $5 up to $50 markup and then +10% for anything above that
3. Plus Our Printing costs

Here is a basic price list

When you are logged in, you are seeing the base price of the art. This means, the price YOU would pay if you wanted to buy a copy for yourself.

You can see a small grey link under the price area When you click on that you can see the breakdown.

Logged out you would just see the customers price and not your own.

The Price and Dimensions area should be totally ignored if you are not selling original sculptures, paintings etc. We do not charge or take commissions on these.

There are four ways to price images

Log in
go Behind The Scenes

1. Price and Dimensions - Originals and non print on demand - This means any work you are selling and sending out yourself, such as physical paintings or prints you have made at home.
Edit image or on upload, fill out the Price and Dimensions area completely

The originals are nothing to do with us. We just give you advertising space on the site. The customer would have to contact you and you arrange the sale,

Please read these two posts if selling originals as they will save heartbreak later

2. Single Pricing - Edit the image you wish to change and put in the new prices. Submit
This is slow but great if you just have one or two images you need to change

3. Bulk Pricing - For existing works whose prices you may wish to change after you have uploaded them.

4. Future Pricing - Go to 'Default Settings' and put in the prices you will be wanting on all future uploads. Submit
This sets prices for future uploads

Refresh your page to see the new prices on your profile

It is not possible to have separate prices for different products

Hope this helps
