p2u ContentAfter some people asking for me to allow dA points as payment I debated it for a while. Personally I hate dA's system for this, the fact that they force you to use their dumb onsite currency, that they take 20% of the profits and that it can take 2-4 weeks for me to see that money, unless they decide to deny the transaction for no fucking reason which has happened to a few of my friends lol. It's completely BS and ridiculous.
However, I also understand some people are unable to use paypal or credit cards online (due to age limitations mostly), but earn dA points. By disallowing point purchases I was effectively also cutting these people off. So I debated the matter, and decided to offer my newer downloads here as well for points, but at an increased price over purchases direct from my website.
Basically managing my shop on my site is less frustrating to get my payment from and I am paid with in 2 days, and I am only charged 2% on each sale. And I'd really like to direct more of my sales traffic to my website than dA. dA is kinda dead for me, you might have noticed I've said in a few places that I'm letting my sub expire. 50/year is frankly more than owning my own website costs me, for a subscription on a site that doesn't listen to user feed back and I don't even have features that many other art sites offer for free (fucking pay for minimal page customization?? wow)
So if you've been wanting my stuff for points because you can't use RL currencies, this is for you. If you can do either, I recommend my shop over points, because you will be saving money due to the lower purchase price. I'll also set up new DLs in this manner, though I may delay point purchases as an option for the first 1-2 months.
Here are my newer works which are now open for point purchases:
