I'm on the fence about the 15% commission
We understand that for many photographers, 15% might not seem like enough. And that's ok, but let's break it down a bit. We offer artists what we consider to be an industry fair commission, while still being able to have room to promote sales within the company and provide commission bonuses, sales incentives and other perks to our artists. The artist is able to gain an additional platform for advertising and generating sales from their photos, while we take care of all other aspects including manufacturing, advertising, packaging, shipping, customer service etc. The artist retains all ownership rights to their photos and their name is attached to that print from the point of listing to the point of printing. We offer a non-exclusivity contract, meaning the artist is free to continue to sell their images independantly or through other platforms (such as stock photo sites). The artist can be as involved in the marketing process (we hope for some shares and shout-outs!) as they want, or just use it as an alternative cash flow. They can choose to disengage from Insta-Art at any time, and all Artist photos will be promptly removed from our site.
