I do not accept point commissions for three reasons, and I explain them every time somebody asks because I think it's important to note how heinously unfair they are.
1: dA takes a 20% cut from the commissions widget (the only way to convert points to currency). The official exchange rate is $1 USD = 80 points, but to make $1, I have to charge you 100 points-- that's $1.20. That's not fair to you.
2: dA charges an additional $1 fee to withdraw points to USD, on top of the cut they already take. Especially on small commissions, this can be up to a 10% fee that I simply lose, even though I have to charge more as per #1.
3: dA makes you wait two weeks to withdraw funds via paypal.
If I accept point commissions, I have to charge more, get less money, and wait longer to use my own money.
So, I have to use paypal or a direct deposit or...care to list the different ways in which I can pay you?
hey there! i wanted to ask about commissions, so i sent you a note, but i never got a response back. are you still accepting orders ?
