New Here... So, DA keeps 80% of the base price of any artwork? And, let's say that, I put something to sell, and one person buys it... can any other person buy the same piece? And still I'll get 20% of my base price?
Please sent your question to help desk of dA to get the right answers. 80% for dA seemed to be too much for me. You are the owner of this pic . for ever! You just can give the using or print rights to anyone who is interested for a payment you have to fix in a contract. Read the contract you have made with dA. If you care about this you have to check it with dA. For my side I trust the print department of dA to handle payments in the right way. I have no chance to control it later if I agree for prints!
Thanks for the reply and excuse my late reply. Yes, I've read the dA FAQ's and I can't decide wether or not this will be a good idea. dA offers free services, and i'm grateful with this site just for that. But paying to get more than 20% of my base price of any possible art buyed, it's not as attractive as getting paid for a freelance job.
I'll have to pass with this, and maybe use dA as a self-publishing platform/tool and nothing more. Escuse me if I bothered with my question/response.
I am just starting but my art is going to need to make profits or I am going to be screwed over this is a new venture for me and this is going to make or break me real quickly so I am watermarking my stuff and the dead pistol (The CO2 Pistol CZ-75 D Compact Dual Tone) is the first art piece I did and I am going to be posting my artwork but I am working on a timeline that isn't my friend. My goal is to get my airsoft bill to be less and then I can post more art to help that part of my life cheaper then I am going to be working on financing my Youtube Channel with the funds this is to start my life and I am grateful for anyone to buy my merchandise cause this is admittedly med-quality at best but soon I will try to do more. until then please help support me.
When you upload a new picture just follow the print button... for all you old pics you have to go in the edit mode and follow the print button... and then just wait and hope! deviant art is doing all the rest for you! Good Luck!
Hey I have a question I know someone bought one of my pictures but I still don't have the points in my account and it's been 3 days. Should I do something ? I didn't even get a notification that I sold something ... I'm a bit worried
This is a very good question! May be 1 US Dollar, may be 2, may be more if you on top level! It`s depending on how your art is accepted. Most of the people pay more for the "core membership fee" than they get money from deviantArt by selling their art.
Do I have to pay for selling my art? I mean what do I have to do - just put art for sale and if someone want to buy it DA prints and ships everything without charging me and I can get my money from check or paypal? I'm really confused, I don't want to put a lot of art and after a while see that they charged me for putting my stuff for sale, taxes, etc. - most of us are broke.
Please contact Help and FAQ! As far as I know you don't have to pay for selling your art! May be you have to be a "core" member.
