Following on from my thread yesterday on selling to the shop/gallery, I would just like to say that I revised my price list, thanks to the advice received, and have got some small success.

The guy in the shop ordered 2 A4 prints @ 15 apeice. Alright, it's not the biggest sale in the world, but it is a step in the right direction, and hopefully, will lead to further orders from them.

They were also interested in having some made into canvas prints, so here's hoping.

Anyway, this was just to say thanks to those who gave me advice especially regarding pricing, as I have now effectively got double what I was originally thinking I may get.

Well done Martin, the first sale is always the one you will remember Smile Its good that he paid cash too, rather than sale or return.

Great news,

I thought I too could be posting such a message after checking email yesterday - photosales email came in, only a week after I plugged in the sales module.

What did I find - 627 quid order from a complete joker in the USA saying so how much are you donating to charity.

So my response, I thanked him for his order and said that the legally binding contract he'd just entered into would be delt with quickly, hoped he'd enjoy the prints when payment was received and that the chrity would be pleased too !!!!!

Anyone else get many jokers pretending to order stuff, only to make stupid comments ?

Cheers

Great stuff Martin, keep it up.

Peter, with regards to your bogus order, it's not something I've ever had a problem with because payment is taken at the time of ordering, therefore I only get an e-mail once payment has been received.

Tim thanks.

At present I only have order by email untill I've got through the web of confusion around testing in PayPal Sandbox.

Once that's sorted and tested then I'll plug in Paypal so as you say it won't be an issue.
