Hello, I am a designer Boians Cho Joo Young.
Self sales site was opened today.

http://www.boians.com

2005 year, Korea Macro Stock Photo Agency began to sell through an agency.
2010 year, Start selling through the microstock agency.
The results fell into 1/10 of the revenues 6 years ago.

Many are struggling with sales issues. I made self-selling site.
Currently the Boians content 42,000Cut released in Korea.
The site was produced in English translated content 7,500Cut.
I see with the self-selling All the rest of the content is a challenge.

The biggest worry now is the price.
Current character $ 5 (USD), icons and symbols are introduced into $ 1 (USD).
I do not know the price in an appropriate content.
I would appreciate your comments about the right price.

② Payment via PayPal
③ Direct Bank Transfer
④ Payoneer Preparing...

[Differentiated strategies]

...The biggest worry now is the price....

I am not sure that this is the most important thing. I think that finding buyers - having them find your site - is the most important thing when you're selling from your own site versus through an agency. If you price a little on the high side and find by looking at your site statistics that many visitors come, look at a few pages and then leave without buying, you could always run a sale and see if that made a difference. If you start too low, you really have nowhere to go.

If no one is visiting your site, it doesn't matter what price you set :)

You are a talented man, but you really have to brush-up your English. Google translator makes you sound awkward.

Your vector work is great and I wish you good luck with the site.

I'd be tempted to put the prices up (maybe double at least).

As Jo says, your biggest difficulty is finding buyers, being visible.
You need to put in lots of work attracting many people to your site.

Good luck!  :)

You have some very cute cartoons and some beautiful drawings - love your horses. I think your prices should be higher. Best of luck.

Boians Self-selling site failed.

1. Shop options: WordPress + WooCommerce (Variable Product Downloadable site)
2. Production Period: 2015, July 1~ November 2 (5 Restoration work)
3. Upload 12,000 items

[Cause of Failure]

1. 'A2 Hosting' Unlimited capacity and unlimited hosting was a lie.
    Current account and delete all data standstill.

2. WordPress + WooCommerce Slow Problems
   1) Starting with 5000 products registered a very slow site issues.
   2) WooCommerce site, sometimes transients cause bloat. (Must remove daily)
   
3. WooCommerce Variable Product
   1) Recognize the goods one by one product options
   2) Three options products 1,000 -> 3,000 pieces perception, slowness.

[Conclusion]
WordPress + WooCommerce Approximately SKU 5,000 products suitable for shopping malls.
More than Sku 5,000 Product, slowness site. Administrator pages 20 to 30 seconds or more.

I have failed this project. There are currently looking for a reliable hosting company.

Joomla, drupal, Magento
To select one of the three ask for referrals?

as silverrose suggested, perharps you could invite other designers to join you,
so you not only could earn  commissions ,
but someone might be able to help you with your English.
