How can I change prices for my prints? It's cheapest in all POD sited around.
Btw. I must admit I don't understand it - I was told I have to wait for curator but my images are on sale from start...

Hi Ariene,

go to: https://crated.com/account/pricing. There you can set (increase or decrease) your prices for entire portfolio (this effects only for new uploads).

or

go to: https://crated.com/account > select My Art > Select image for edit > image details open > below is Set your products and pricing for this piece > there you can increase or decrease your prices for every image individually.

Enjoy,

Kalevi

P.S. there are not final prices but you can set Markup (%).

I'm curious how you guys set the markup. I raised it a bit, up to 50%. My understanding is that contributors take 80% of the markup, is that correct?

I'd love to hear from others who have received that coveted "curated" email in recent days. Seems there was a brief flurry of notices earlier in the week, but since then nobody has reported getting the email.

Any news?

I'm still planning to pull my images and close my account on June 1 if I haven't heard anything from Crated by then.

We provide you with wholesale pricing that you can markup by up to 300%. That markup is your profit and you keep 80%. It's really that simple.

You have to wait to see if you get that "curated" e-mail to find out rather you will be in the search results? I've got 8 sitting in my gallery but none show up in the search. It sounds like if you're not curated in that those photos just sit there. I just uploaded them last week, don't remember the exact date.

Am I correct in my thinking?

That was the point of my last post on the subject a few lines up. I've got 20 images on Crated now, all of which are selling on stock sites but also (thanks to Crated) very easy for somebody to steal in blog size. Most of them have been there 2 weeks. I still haven't heard anything back from Crated, so I don't know if my images failed to pass muster or if I just haven't cooled my heels long enough to make it through their vague "curation" process.

If other people are getting acceptance notices after a similar time period, then it might be worth waiting. But if nobody is getting "curated" there any more, then it seems to make sense to take my gallery down.

Rather hard to know how to deal with a company that doesn't give you decent feedback.

I guess if they are still hanging in the wind in a month, I'll just take them down. I know I won't upload any more til I find out. It wouldn't be worth my time to work on uploading photos if they can't be found in a search. I know the ones I uploaded do sell, but if I'm going to give someone 20% and have to do all the work searching out customers, it isn't worth it. If I wanted to do that I'd have my own site.

I think they are asking for 15 to 20 images to be reviewed in the curation process.  8 might not be enough.

Hmmm. So most everybody here has gotten that email?

Is there nobody (other than me) who uploaded images but hasn't gotten it?

I have e-mailed support to how many they want. Hopefully it won't take to long to get an answer. I could find no information about the requirements on their site or even being "crated" in order to be in the search engine. They really need to be clearer as to what they do so contributors know before hand.

Maybe if you havn't gotten the email you were somehow lost in the shuffle? If it were me I'd close my account and then open a new one...and upload photos of beaches and foxes. They seem to love beaches and foxes, based on what folks have said about the work chosen to be shown at their gallery opening.  ;)

Good suggestions, Shelma. I am planning to close my account June 1 if (as I expect) I haven't heard anything by then. I do have a couple of foxy photos but no beaches, unfortunately. Ain't my thing.

Looks like Crated just isn't for me, so I'll focus on what works.

Just curious...those of you who got "crated"...how many uploads did you have initially before you were approved? It'll give me an idea rather I have enough already uploaded to know rather there is enough. I know someone said they thought it was 15 to 20.

I uploaded 20 and got 'crated' the next day...

Thanks...I only had 8 on there which I uploaded last week and I'm going to upload 20 more to see what happens.

Hopefully it's because they are trying to get the site fully functional and it isn't the beginning of a bad habit.

Thanks for all the follows - following everyone back  8)
Site looks good let's hope there are sales. I've been waiting for them to add watermarking before putting up any typical stock photos.
