Sunny, I took the advise of Inxlady, and started using the buy now option and it's working better than the auctions were. At least if someone wants to buy a painting, they have to pay for it right then. I remember a time when the auctions were more desirable for buyers. At least I thought they were.
Anyway, the last time I posted here, I was selling my paintings on auction and for a lot less. Now the changes I made were raising prices much considerably higher and using buy now.
I was using auctions for so long that it was hard to change. Don't ask why, because I don't know. Stubbornness, I guess.
Anyway, it's getting better at least for now. And BTW, I did sell a lot of paintings but not even close to prices I think they should get. It's kinda discouraging to work 2 or 3 hours on a painting and sell it for $35, not counting all the fees to be paid. I'm sure most of us know that.
Thanks for the advise.
