NO PAY - you get to upload max 25 images and you set your profit margin

YES PAY $30/yr - you get unlimited uploads and you also get a small percentage of the framing and extras the customer orders when buying your image for print

You're not likely to get much (if any) return out of 25 images so you really need to be prepared to pay if you want to make any progress there.
BTW, my main reason for joining was to use them as a storage place where I could get prints of my own work when I wanted them. Their print quality is good and they charge a pretty reasonable rate if you order copies of your own work from them.

Isn't this a lot like Imagekind?

No idea, I've never heard of them.

NO PAY - your page looks like a Walmart outlet, cluttered with distracting junk.

PAY - you create a clean looking page that looks the way you want.

Have to disagree. I do extremely well on FAA with a good payout every month!
It has become one of my top earners. It's not so much the artistic that sell well but the stock images which surprises me. You do need to have at least 200 or more good quality images and to me the key is to upload regularly.
I highly recommend selling there.

Lots of businesses need generic wall art and stock is perfectly suited!

What I don't like about the site is the big thumbs with tiny watermarks.
Aren't you guys worried about theft?
I know watermarks can easily be removed anyway but this is like giving them away no?
That's the only gripe I have with FAA.

Sandra, each image in your port is a masterpiece, I wouldn't exactly call it plain stock, no wonder you sell well there. I don't think there's a place where you wouldn't do well ;)

Thank you Wim!
I have to agree with you about the thumb size and watermark that has always bothered me but most art sites like RedBubble and Artflakes have fairly large thumbs so if you want to sell some work you have to put up with it. Hopefully they might change that...it is certainly not worse than Photodune's thumb size.
Sad to say but people will steal no matter what!  :(

True Sandra, not much we can do about that anyway.
Yeah photodune has medium size thumbs with bad watermarking, Yay-Micro though has king size but improved watermark (click loupe below image in right corner)

So I will try them out too http://henrik-lehnerer.artistwebsites.com/ Hopefully I will see some return.

Does it help to submit the images to some groups?

I also created a Squidoo lens for promoting FAA profiles at http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-promote-your-fine-art-america-faa-profile-store

Please feel free to add your links to the Squidoo lens.

I was going to pay for the premium account but it looks like they only take credit card payments in dollars.  Why wont they accept PayPal when buyers use PayPal?

Does anyone outside the US use a pre-paid dollar credit card?  I get annoyed with the foreign exchange fees.  There are credit cards with no fees but I don't really want another credit card.
