Amazon - A Question

Posted by: Tony Marquez on 01/29/2012 - 11:33 AM

I'm noting that is selling one of my photographs,which I know is not on my list as a seller for them. They list FAA as the originator.

Is FAA using Amazon as an outlet for some of our works? And, are getting credit for it?

Here's the posting:

Here's the update direct from Sean himself..........

Yes - we are in the process of selling FAA prints through Amazon again. We've switched from their "pay per click" model to their "pay per sale" model. With this new model, Amazon takes a 15% commission on every sale - which is why the prices that we show on Amazon are higher that what you see here on FAA.

Right now, we're only offering canvas prints for sale on Amazon, and we have about 300,000 FAA images loaded there already.

It's a slow process, but eventually, we'll get them all loaded over there.

If you want to see if your images are already listed, you can search for your name on If you have a common name, you might have to put "fineartamerica" in your search in order to find yourself (e.g. "beth edwards fineartamerica").

Please note - your high-resolution images still only reside on FAA servers... your Amazon orders are still fulfilled by FAA... and you'll still get credit and recognition for your sales on FAA when the order comes through Amazon.

When someone places an order for your artwork on Amazon, all that happens is that Amazon sends us and e-mail with the order details, and we then place the order here on FAA using those order details.

Tony, Premium members have always been on Amazon. Look under 'Amazon' in discussions search.

However, it used to be on a pay per click but the budget was eaten up by artists 'checking out their links' so, after talks with Amazon, Sean got the Pay Per Sale instead.

Thanks for the info. I think it's great.
