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.
