ArtFire shop effectively closed [Aug. 28th, 2016|09:34 am]
Purple Pony Art
My shop on ArtFire effectively closed over the summer. I had signed on years ago in 2008 and had a nifty lifetime plan that was grandfathered in over the years. But with almost no sales in the last two years, no ability to sell digital downloads and a climbing US exchange rate, I couldn't afford to keep it open. I was on the free plan for a while until that was no longer offered. It's a shame because I love the platform and had great sales there for a long time. As my ArtFire sales dropped off my Etsy ones increased - something that I am at a loss to explain! Competition is always good and I appreciate the things that ArtFire offered at the time that Etsy didn't - like stats, shop customization and the ability to link to your website.
