Market Place on

Published February 22nd, 2012

I must say when I saw that a market had been added to the 500px community... I was very excited to see what was implemented. I enabled the store and went to look at the options. The Fine Print... is buried in the interface and not readily available. For thos wanting to know.. I copied this from the support section Q&A.

"To find out all the details regarding prices, photographer's revenue etc. please read all the information as provided on and including the "fine print, and enable the store for further details.

I dont see the market as a good way to market my fine art prints, but it may be a way to sell the bulk images that are not the big keepers. Who knows what to expect for the cost of printing... (bay photo gallery wrap 24x36 is $183 // 30x30 $190 not including shipping) so that leaves lets say $300 behind. Expect to net about $230 per print then. Digital downloads are $2 a pop as stated.

For some reason this makes me feel like the work here is considered micro stock.
