I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using the DPW website but I’ve had little success selling paintings here. I’m not blaming anyone but it’s just not cost effective for me to continue my active membership. As it stands right now, I’ve about broken even in my income from sales vs membership fees, so I’m discontinuing my membership for now.
Once my membership ends at the end of the month, will my gallery just disappear, or will people still be able to view paintings but not buy them through the site? If the paintings are still viewable, will I still be able to add new artwork to my gallery? I actually wouldn’t mind paying an annual membership fee at a lower cost just to archive my artwork but I’m not selling enough paintings to justify the monthly fee. If my gallery is no longer viewable once my membership ends, I plan to explore other options for a web presence.
I still intend to visit this site often and may reactivate my membership in the future if it looks like sales are improving. Good luck to everyone and I hope you have better results than me.
