The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Dear friends!

The number of my watchers continue to increase. I thank everyone who follows me. Special thanks for your kind comments.

At the same time I have much less sales of my “digital content” (high-resolution versions of the photographs) lately then I had before. Maybe the reason is the prices of my new photographs: I set them from 300 to 500 points comparing to 100 – 250 before. Maybe something else?

So I decided to ask you: is there anybody who is interested in purchasing high-resolution versions of my pictures? What price would sound reasonable for you?

Also I wanted to mention that I can sell complete sets. Please do not hesitate to contact me, since I badly need money currently…

Best wishes,

ds

Personally I believe that you are pitching your prices correctly. I currently have no need for high res pictures otherwise I would be quite happy to pay that price. Personally I would prefer to purchase prints of your work if I had the place to put them. The only reason I could see that I would want high res copies is if I planned to use them for photomanipulation which would obviously go against your copyright. I would be interested to find out some of the reasons why people might want high res copies. Having said that, I realise that people elsewhere in the world may not be as free with their money.

Unless you feel strongly that you were previously undercharging, it might be a good idea to roll the prices back a bit if not completely.
