I usually don't add prints because that ups the price and makes people less likely to buy. ;-;  But I agree, I would love to get prints of digital commissions I order from others.

I like to earn points and never buy them, then I use what I earned to commission people.
For digital art I will only pay points (my only exception was a pet portrait I could print out).
For Traditional art I prefer to pay cash. Just how it feels right for me. I also prefer to seek out traditonal art because I love to have the physical copy of what I paid for. If I lose internet or access to computers or whatever then I have nothing left of the digital art.

How would you pay for someone online to do a traditional piece for you?

Points are good for in-site transactions, but I haven't gotten to a point where I can order points or use paypal. Fortunately, one of my favorite artists is also a friend off the net, so I can pay her in cash at school. Beyond that, recently there have been incidents of people who handle mine and other's money stealing documents with identity information included, and that made me pretty skittish to input my credit card number anywhere online, at least for the time being. 

So, I suppose I still prefer in-person cash transactions, but that'll probably change when I get more into the artistic community and start selling. I can't say I understand being an artist making or paying actual money through online transactions, so I can't say I have a true opinion, either.

That is fortunate. 

What do you not understand about it?

I suppose I worded that wrong. I understand that, just like a commission or sale off the internet, the customer pays for a piece to be made or for a pre-made piece. But something about it still doesn't click yet, because I have yet to sell or purchase anything of great worth yet, with worth being monetary value. I guess.

But I do get a lot more why people price their art in a way that I always felt was pricey. It makes a lot more sense now.

I can only do points ;v; thats really all I can get to buy commissions from anyone, and vice versa. Maybe in the future once I get a job going then I can go to paypal, but I heard some people have very bad luck with paypal and its a bit discouraging to use it

Definitely PayPal. Unless I just happened to have the points laying around, I absolutely despise having to give DA any more money than I have to for my premium membership.  Especially when it's for a commission that DA isn't even drawing for me!

I really dislike dA taking  cut of my work as well. But I get more orders when I use it.... so I guess it balances out a little.

I usually prefer to pay trough paypal,it's faster than ordering points. There are still some artists who takes only points. That widget is really handy
