Just sit back and watch the cash roll in.

I've made $4.40 profit so far. I hear the prints are nice though. I am going to order some this week.

I manage an account for a friend and he has made $145. I think the key is how many customers you can bring to your gallery. Don't expect DCP to do all the work.

The problem is that its really hard to sell photographs to photographers -- so you should try other methods to drive traffic to your prints.

This thread nudged me to check mine, and there was a purchase, with frame, today.
Be kind of nice if we got notification somehow when there is activity.
13 prints to date - not setting the world on fire, but still, it's quite the compliment when they do sell.

Wow, you guys have some very nice prints.
I just started uploading some prints to see how it works.
I have no idea what to price things so I just rounded up to the next dollar.

I would be so excited to just sell one let alone make any money. :)

John Paul - I looked at what some others were setting prices too. Seems like the market can absorb $10-$12 for an 8x10 or no one would price them there. I also consider the quality of the print. Of course, with no experience and no sales, this is all a guessing game...But an educated one!

I plan to have my web site up within the next 8-10 weeks. That will give me another promotional pathway...

Just a heads up for you, Brian. I noticed that the link in your signature takes me to your prints, but it doesn't register as a referral from you (so you get the extra 25%). I believe you have to use the url //baco99.dpcprints.com to get the referral...yep, just tested the link in this post and it does show a referral by you. Change those links and get more money!
