Cafepress

Jul 27, 2009 - 0 comments

So I need to vent.  I own a cafepress store. I've had it for 3 years now and it's going great.  I don't make a lot of extra money (thank you economic crisis), but every little bit helps.

So today I log in because I see (in my email) that I've sold about a dozen items this month.  Not much, but again...ever little bit helps.  I make 3 dollars per item.  Bad month..I know.  I log in to see that those 12 items, I only made 7 dollars off of!!!  BIIIIIIIIIG difference!  

So somehow my account got changed.  Instead of making 3 dollars per item, I made 3% of each item.  Which is not good when some of those items only originally cost 3 dollars.  So I'm not a happy camper.  At all!  

So I have to wait another hour (when I get off work) to call and see what the heck to do. Because, this is ****.  I was supposed to make 36 dollars.  Which isn't a lot, but it's a heck of a lot better than 7 dollars!  I mean, worst case scenario, I just have to deal and hope that I have good sales next month.

Which I should have good sales since I'm introducing about a dozen new designs. But we'll see. Again...it's a cheap website to own and every little bit of cash helps.

Okay, thanks for letting me vent.
