Erm I had a real hard look through the f.a.qs before this idea. Just an idea on the table....
When you look at someones image , at the bottom there are buttons for , Leave comment, Comments, Vote, Shortlist , add to faves , and an obscure , Set notification , thingy.
How about replacing the "Set notification" with "Flog it!"
Then if you click that , the viewers email pops up in your inbox , and you start a dialogue , just like you get if someone leaves a p.f comment or new p.m (gotta enable the notification in your settings)
No hastle for epz , paypal and all that.
Pete gets his reward through increased membership if its a known facility ?

I've bought two prints from members in the last four years. They were both images which I felt were outstanding and which I thought would look good framed on the wall (they do!!).
I agree that it's a good idea - fancy buying one of mine?
im too thick to set up a website lol , but i thought its a good and mutual credit crunch idea ,
There would be a huge disparity of prices I'm sure, which may cause friction.... There have also been threads in years gone by regrding the (perceived) danger of EPZ turning into a microstock site. Perhaps if it were prints only (rather than files) and available only to other members it might work?
I've mooted the idea of a print swap before with some positive feedback, but I've been too lazy to set it up
Portree road looks good , hows a tennor sound
great idea there are loads worth buying on the site
Does Pete get a commission too ..from the sales of the prints ?
Do you a swap for one of yours?
Maybe we could have an 'opt in', with a standard price covering printing and P&P (say £5 - £6?). That way, those who sell their work for a living won't be selling themselves short.
no disparity , its simply down to the clicker and the poster , all offline thereafter.
Up to them to sort dpi , prices etc , no onus on epz.
Epz , just needs to make known that the flog it option exists Di , simple , the facility is would of course only be available to fully paid up membs
So who's going to hit the 'suggestion' button at the bottom of the page? I'm too scared - I hear pressing it causes a satellite to peer at your house from space for the next three days :-(
hmmm definately something in it for Pete then
Daves going to press it of course
its not to distract from all the brilliant websites already created ,
If they get the traffic , good on them , but hey , this is a bit better known and the websiters could direct the interesters to there own work , haha once pmd through a simple flog it option.
this could evolution.
I believe something similar was suggested in the past.
Can't remember the outcome.
You could use the report problem/suggestion link at the bottom of every page and see what the team think of the idea.
