So I've sold things on my other DA account before, years ago... and made a decent amount on the few sales I had over the years. I always submit prints here on this account but I can't remember the last time I sold something. So I got a notification today that someone bought a print (thanks for the support). According to the notification.... they paid 22$+ for it. And I made 96 cents on it. Like what the actual heck? DA claims to pay people more than anyone else. So I asked another senior member who actually does quite well in the prints community what the deal is. He says I need to change my royalty percentage. I was under the impression (from years ago) that if I up the percent they just up the price to reflect it. So even doubling the price would just get me maybe 2-4$. Also I searched all over the site and can't find anywhere how to change it, and googled too and couldnt find anything other than you can't change it unless you pay for a premium account.

I would make way more money just printing them myself and selling them, or using any other website if this is the case. What am I missing here folks? I used to be ingrained in the community and know it inside out but I am so busy with this mermaid work I haven't kept on on updates. Please tell me it's just some dumb link I've missed, and that I really am going to make more than 96 cents. Cuz like that's robbery for me, and for the person trying to support me by buying a print.

I'm Raina the Halifax Mermaid. I'm a children's performer and educator and I do other events as well.

I have other accounts on DA you may have seen, and you may have seen some of the images here on those accounts. I decided to make a new account just for my mermaid stuff.

Raina, you must have been told like a thousand times, but what you do is awesome. I have never heard of it before today, and I must say I would LOVE to meet you. I don't think I'm going to Canada anytime soon, but I'll be sure to check your events' list or something.
Do you know if things like that happen in France?
Anyway, I'm really impressed. I fell like a child right now :D

I just finished reading your second book, an entertaining read with the ups and downs, joys, and hard work that come with the territory. I guess being a mermaid is not all that different from being a pro athlete, musician, or actor. I even found a few parallels between your life experiences and my own.

In case you are wondering, I bought the book because curiosity got the best of me! :fish:
