Is the Pictorem site (https://www.pictorem.com/) worth looking into. Anyone making money there? How does it compare to FineArtAmerica?

I just started to upload there. Steven Heap just reported in his monthly report that he already got sales there - he is also still new there, but uploaded already many images.

Quality: Seems good!
Custom service much better that FAA.

Biggest reason to upload there: Free shipping to USA and Canada!

And they have great Murals also to offer.

I am pretty sure it is worth to try.

I've been impressed so far. This is the article where I mentioned my sales:

https://backyardsilver.com/say-again-earnings-from-stock-photography-have-increased/

You can choose your pricing (although in simpler ways than FAA) and I have chosen a margin of $20 per square inch of print. I have a feeling that people buy larger prints because it is not as expensive as I had on FAA and the shipping is free. You also get to know the email and name of the buyers so you could add them to your mailing list (perhaps!)

So far, so good.

The site doesnt show image thumbnails for me. Just the item description.

Thanks all. I have been disappointed with FAA and was wondering if Pictorem performance would be better....sounds like it is worth a try.

I'm confused. I just did a google search "new york photos wall art" and there were no results from pictorem at all?

That is very strange. I've searched for mine in the recent past and have seen the Pictorem results, but now I don't. I have sold three metal prints in the past month and they were not ones I actively marketed myself, although the locations were (two in Kauai), so I am not sure where the buyers found my images.

I'll continue to investigate those Google results...

If I search for something with fewer results - such as Cheat Lake print - my images appear in the top row of organic results and Pictorem in there alongside FineArtAmerica and Pixels. The latter ones have been online for much longer. So they do get there, but there will be many fewer in a popular place like New York?

I would guess the results also depend on "where in the world" the person doing the search happens to be located.

Also Google throws up results of pages similar to those you've looked at in the past, so your stuff comes up higher when you search than it does if a stranger searches for it.

But three sales your first month is great! As is the free shipping. Definitely worth a look! Thanks for the info!

Yes, if you are thinking of signing up as a contributor, please use my referral link. They do pay a small commission if the person then signs up for an annual plan. https://www.pictorem.com/index.html?refer=JH10JED1EDI

Thanks!

Looks like they limit you to 250 images unless you pay for the premium Pro membership.

Not sure what the "Premium Pro" membership costs, but I would be inclined to start with the 250 image limit and see the results before going further.

and that's certainly better than FAA 25 image limit

I am from Australia and have had images on FAA for at least 3 years and the only thing I have sold was facemask about a years ago.
