Dear PiART members,
In a few months, we will be launching a print store that will allow You to sell your published works to clients from all over the world in the form of high-quality
prints. (Prints will be available in several sizes on paper and canvas.).
We will allow you to set your own price for your works. This price will then be added to print production price, shipping price and the PiART store fixed price to form the final price that clients of the webshop will see.
We will provide you with this option for your exclusive content only (published photographs that are available for sale ONLY in PiART store) without maximum price limit. For all your other photos (non-exclusive content), there will be a maximum allowed price. (the idea of this is to avoid setting price for non-exclusive content higher than it is on the other marketplaces).
You will also be able to sell "limited series" on the store. Each limited series will include a manually signed certificate and a unique number for the series (eg: Limited Print: 4 from 15).
As we want you to be fully satisfied with the service that we will provide, we give you the opportunity to vote for your preferred way of price formation. Poll is available for you on the home page of PiART.
PS. If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to reply to this topic.
The author will determine his own price above the amount of work and shipment. But if the author places a price on his work that is much higher than the price of the same work that the author sells on another site, then it will harm the competitiveness of PiART. Therefore, we will set a limit at which the overall price of the product to be competitive with the prices on other sites. Therefore, we will set a limit on the maximum price that the author will be able to set, at which the overall price of the product will be competitive with prices on other sites.
For example: If the cost of production and shipment is 100 euros, and the same product is sold on another site for 300 euros, then we will limit the price that the author can put up to 200 euros, so the total price of the product will not exceed 300 euros. But this limit will only be for content that is not exclusive to PiART. The way we plan to work will allow authors to make much more profit form one sales than from others similar sites, regardless of this limit.
On the other hand, content that is exclusive for PiART will be free of this limit and author can sell it at whatever price he wants.
If there are any ambiguities feel free to ask.

Hello PiART photographers
We would like to inform you that we are working hard on the Web Print Store and moving forward quickly. Everything about the production process is ready and is currently being tested. We'll use only the most recognized and high-quality materials for the production of print. The prints will be made on the latest model of a 24-inch professional EPSON printer. Only original EPSON inks and media that guarantee quality and durability over 70 years will be used. Because the production base is positioned in Bulgaria we will use the materials from the official one EPSON distributor for Bulgaria, "FACTOR.BG", you can visit their site here https://factor.bg/en/ Our friends at FACTOR.BG help us fully to achieve uncompromising quality at the best possible price.
We are just waiting for the Print Store source code to be completed and integrated into the current website. For the most part, it is ready and is currently being tested. In the short video below, you can see some parts of the store that are already working and are in a beta testing stage.
We want full sales awareness in print sales that are not available on any such site at this moment. Such as Immediate notification to the Photographer on every sale, Discounts when buying a whole series according to the number of pictures in the series and more. We also believe that series can be an attractive product for owners of commercial and tourist establishments. We want to enable authors to set a price for each of their works. And many other things related to the easy and trouble-free operation of the store.
While the print store warehouse is completely ready, we still can't start sales before the print store website is fully ready and integrated. But we are very close.
Thank you for your patience and we will keep you updated!
