    Instead of asking around have you thought of looking at other sites that do a similar thing to yours? It is very hard to say "I'd pay x amount" when we don't really know what we're buying.

    Downloads - probably wouldn't buy them
    Print - One I really liked - last one I bought was £40 and A4 on an A3 sheet (so big border) but it was particularly meaningful and I don't usually buy this sort of thing.
    Shipping - £5-8 tracked and rolled in a tube

    Depends entirely on the subject and the buyer.

    I - an individual - would be very unlikely to buy a photographer's work unless the subject had personal meaning to me. Generally speaking if I want a photograph of something that means something to me I go out and take it myself.

    A business, on the other hand, may quite readily buy generic photos from you for their website or promotional materials, but they might be more likely to do so through a stock photo business. You can still make money this way. You'll probably get less per image but should sell more images, assuming you are not well known in the industry.

    Pictures of what?

    (Original post by WSmith7069)

    I have been making my website over the past few weeks whenever I get free time. Its coming along really well!

    Im now starting to get to the business part of selling the photos and require some guidance on this.

    What I ask is if you could reply to the following questions

    What size prints you would buy? (if buying one for example)

    What price would you pay?

    If you were to download the image how much will you be willing to pay for one?

    What would you pay for shipping? (Don't want to overcharge on this. I know I will have to work it out but just a guidance)

    How would you pay for the prints?

    I hope to reveal the website to you soon. Im excited for it!
    Anything from £7-£15 depending what it is
    For a download not the same as the prints, maybe £5-10
    I hate paying for shipping on anything so cheapest as possible
    And just a card transaction I hate things like PayPal

    It really does depend on what the prints are of and the quality
Which accompaniment is best?
