Does Photo Sales Function $$ On The Site Suck?

Sun Oct 15, 2006 11:23 pm

Hi Guys,

I have been watching the site sales of photos and I am not sure what the breakdown (i.e. the cut Johan/printing company takes) but somehow these numbers seem really really low payout to the photographer. Selling a picture for such a small bit of money seems pointless. Some of mine (actually almost all) were sold for mere cents. Heck, it is practically stealing  

e.g 2006-08-15 1 sold for 0.145 cents

Here is the summay in my section
"Photographer: Suresh A. Atapattu
You have sold a total of 109 prints.
Your earnings so far is:
15.390 GBP
1.230 EUR
13.330 USD
Sum in US dollars: $43.24
(Subject to change depending on exchange rates)"

Heck..i would have sold one picture for double $43.24 easily when people approach me via email.

Initiallly this was a novel and cool feature but i am disappointed about how much the photographer actually makes out of it. It is appears to be a win situation for everyone involved EXCEPT for the guy who goes thru the trouble of generating the product! Unless volume is achieved these numbers are pitiful.

So i am kinda feeling this is not worth it. What's you opinion?

Suresh,

Since the payout.. I'm now..

Photographer: Lew
You have sold a total of 13 prints.
Your earnings so far is:
1.930 GBP
0.365 EUR
0.000 USD
Sum in US dollars: $4.02

Been sat at that for about a year now.. I think the $50 limit until a payout is rather silly as thats technically our money.. having to wait, in somecases those who will never recieve a payout because they sold one or two prints and nothing more.. can never get to their money for the images sold as prints from this website. Seems a loophole that many photographers are loosing out on.

I think i read somewhere that Johan/Anet doesn't make any money of it.Maybe the printing Company is too pricey.

Quoting EWS (Reply 1):

Don't know exactly but the 50USD limit might be set to keep costs low. 15USD won't be worth to transfer the money.

And all in all you don't have to use this feature it's always possible to enable seeling prints.

Well, if Johan isn't making money out of it,
the photographer isn't making money out of it...

Then why should it go on ? Why feed a big printing company ?

Definitely not worth it....

In my opinion you're crazy if you offer prints for sale here. The reason you gave is accurate. Your getting pennies on the dollar. The profit goes to the site. Your photos already bring people to the site which generates income for Johan, and you pay dues to converse with others here, do you really want to pay Johan anymore money?

The prices here are a joke, and there is no way you can verify the sales, or even to who they are going to.

Check out the 100 threads about anet and Johan, he isn't making any money of the site I think.

But maybe someone from the crew or Johan can shed light into the photo print sales.

For the 6"x4" print (15.2x10.2cm AR: 1.5)

it will be

On average it's $0,40 for every pic not knowing how big and expensive/cheap they were sold.

Maybe I overlooked something but that's not too much loosing for you compared to the original price the user paid. Compared to the price you get when you sold it on the market it's much less but how many people sell regulary on the free market.

For me this year sales via email 4 pics for about 350 euro
compared to

You have sold a total of 20 prints.

Your earnings so far is:
1.790 GBP
0.550 EUR
0.630 USD

Sum in US dollars: $4.62

Well Jorge mate, if you ain't figure that one out.........
It isn't hard to work out that if the sales function is disengaged on your photo stock, then if someone wants to buy it they'll hopefully move their eyes across the page 4 inches and see how they can contact you privately regarding such matters!
I don't know what the going rate is but I've sold 7x5 inch prints for £mucho before, so when you do your little calculations next make sure you know what you're on about! Of course Johan is making a crust!

I'm not sure if I understand you correct. I just wanted to point out that from my small calculation that not much is left for Anet. Not saying that this is a good price.

I don't understand how people make such a big fuzz about a function they don't have to use on a site they don't have to upload to or visit. We all know that Anet is a great site and makes the Internet a better place for us, so why complain about this feature?

One small question - if we tick the "No Sale" box, what happens to the money already generated? It won't grow to the $50 minimum if we don't sell anything, but then you can't get your hands on it.

I suppose you could always put it towards extra days FC Membership, but again, I'm not sure how that works either. Is the renewal date put back when you use this facility until your free days are used? Does it mean you pay a reduced rate for renewal or what? Be nice to get some clarification on this.

Andy,

I used my photo money just a few weeks back, you can't withdraw it, so it has to be used as FC membership, in your myphotos area, there is an option to convert your photo sales money into FC days. Your FC expiry date just gets put back.

I tested for a while too to see how it goes and here's my numbers:

Photographer: Ivan Kresanek

You have sold a total of 9 prints.

Your earnings so far is:
0.720 GBP
0.275 EUR
0.305 USD

Sum in US dollars: $1.98

I now have removed all my photos. Not really worth it.

I don't have time to read all replies, so sory if this has been said in so many words:

I disabled the photo sales option for my photos a long time ago. Since then I have sold two photos one for $175 and one for $100.

Quoting Eksath (Thread starter):
You have sold a total of 109 prints.



Quoting Eksath (Thread starter):
Sum in US dollars: $43.24

You: 109 Prints - $43
Me: 2 Prints - $275

If you had sold even just half your prints at my average sell price you would have made $6800!!

Don't sell yourself short! Remove the photo sales option and sell them privately.

I do all my selling through contacts.. I would never think of selling my photos inreturn for pennies through airliners.net. Might be good for the people with point and shoots who don't have worry about paying back an expensive DSLR.. but for me, I'd rather deal directly with the person. Sometimes I get to know the buyer so well that they come back to me in the future ...

And i'm also a lot more confident in the print quality I'm providing vs. the stuff that gets printed through a.net. Dunno how good the quality is. I prefer to do it all myself.

Because it is a good faith effort to keep our community happy.

The sales function here is for those sales. NOT for commercial sales.
I owe alot to airliners.net ..This site has made me many good commercial sales that I never would have received without Johan and the crew...
The small money I make here I will use for double first class days...

Actually, my middle name is well defined by my parents when they listed my middle name on my birth certificate. And it is has nothing to do with the fact that I upload aviation pics. The world of aviation and aviation photography does not begin and end at the corners of this internet domain name.

FYI for you,Royal. You can also visit google scholar to check my middle name. It is defined quite well in my engineering research area. I took the liberty of giving you the following link.

http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=...sh+atapattu&hl=en&lr=&start=0&sa=N

Also "so what" would be not what the patients who benefit from my work or American Heart Association or Uncle Sam who fund my work would say either.

Without mincing words...

No, they weren't "prints", they were jpegs that I licenced for one time use in a publication. I was only trying to make a rough comparison. Nevertheless, he sold 109 prints. Let's say ten of these 109 had contacted him directly and gave him the ability to negotiate an average price of let's say $20 each, he would have made 99 less sales, but $157 more dollars in the same time. Furthermore he wouldn't have been selling his work for pennies on the dollar.

Thats true but I think if somebody wants a pic for publication (printed/online/...) he would use the contact information instead of buying a print and scan this one. Selling a pic via mail to a company is a completely different thing than selling a print to Mr. Brown.

I really would appreciate to hear Johan talking about this issue....does Anet make a lot of money or not?

All in all it might be that photogs get too less money from the sales but not because the biggest part of the sales go to Anet it's the "Low" prices.

Hi guys,

As explained in the thread linked to from the upload page ( Photo Print Sales Ready! (by Administrator May 25 2005 in Aviation Photography) ) Airliners.net splits the markup 50/50 with the photographer. As Photobox handles the sales as well as all other aspects (like printing and shipping) they get most of the income generated.

I must agree with you that the income from print sales is not amazing. A few photographers manages to get over $50 monthly but most never comes close to that.

I am planning a big change to the photo sales section.

1) The photographer should be able to set whatever markup he wants on his photos. If he wants to keep prices low and sell a lot or high and sell a few (but with better margins) that should be up to each individual photographer.

2) Airliners.net share should be removed or at least decreased. Even with the 50% of the markup we're getting now, it's hardly worth all the manual administrative work associated with this service. Instead, I plan on making a deal with one or more of the big print suppliers (in Europe or the US or both) so that you can setup an account with them and via specially formatted links from Airliners.net sell your photos from Airliners.net (and also from your own sites using the same links should you want that).

Unfortunately, it does not seem like Photobox (the company that currently manages the printing) will be able to do that. As I understand it, they have been bought by another company and are planning to close down the ability to sell prints via other sites (as via Airliners.net). I am looking for other alternatives.

Please note that the print sales feature is only for private, non-commercial use and is voluntary for photographers to participate in.

Regards,
Johan

Thanks for the clarification and the update Johan.

One question. Under the proposed new system, will we still have the option to buy First Class days? I just used my sales money (around $10) and this got me an extra 120 days. To my mind this is a good deal.

Cheers

I do know it is down at the moment but will it be up again in the near future ?

Thanks Jeff! Shoot me an email if you want a second or third opinion on heart stuff.

Quoting Administrator (Reply 36):
I must agree with you that the income from print sales is not amazing. A few photographers manages to get over $50 monthly but most never comes close to that.

Johan,

Thanks for the info. and you attention to this.

Johan now we have your attention.
How's is the "large" print sales doing ? are you more positive about that ?
I am still thinking whether to upload or not but I don't hear much about it.
I do know it is down at the moment but will it be up again in the near future ?

t.i.a.

Hi Willem,

I am currently beta-testing the new "large prints upload". Check my photos ...
All bugs have been eliminated (thanks to Henrik). This section is very close to release.

Hope this helps,
Phil / EDDL

Thanks Phil, I'll keep an eye on it.

I've just deleted all of my photos for sale option. I've sold 63 photos and made $23! Not very impressive! If I knew what ones I sold, it might make up for it...

Guys, I've handly made 5 USD with my photo sales, LOL!

Can the money be used on A.net merchandise in case I feel like the 50 USD limit is something abstract very far away from now?

Or perhaps all these "odds and ends" could be donated to a charity if the photographers so wished?

I'm totally with you here. I hope Johan is reading this.

I'm uploading photos here for fun, not to make profit. I do have my photos for sale, but that's because I've got so many requests of small prints of my pictures and this way it seems to work the easiest, without me having to print out the picures and then post them. Wouldn't be a bad idea to give the money from the photos to those who really need it, they would probably enjoy it as much as I do of this great hobby.

Or we give it to Anet as part of the new Server fund which comes up sometimes when the site is overloaded.
