How Do I Control The Products I Sell?

I wish to upload some images and sell only prints and canvases (not acrylics, metals, etc.), but unless I overlooked it, I see no way of doing that.

I cannot list it as original pieces because I want FAA to fulfill the order.

Perhaps somebody has had this same problem and found a good work-a-round?

Thanks for your help.

there is no way to do that here. you can do that at zazzle, but you'll get lower prices. the only real way to do that is to say that you have a pile of - lets say, signed originals that you will sell. and you would then have to stock those. but only on certain sizes. the only way to do it is to not do it here. maybe you can add it to the suggestion list to isolate things that you don't want it on.

Dan - not possible. I wish it were. I asked Sean about this and there are no plans to provide an option to not sell using certain paper/media.

Thanks for your replies. Sorry for the late reply. Haven't had net access for two days (lightning strike).

Unfortunately, I did not think it was possible. And it's too bad it won't be added. Seems like a logical feature. There are just some items that may not work well on metal or acrylic, etc.

Dan, you can post your recommendation to buyers in the Description, suggesting which products work best for each image. It would help in your sales.......you know best which product suits your work. I do the same.

edit: sometimes visitors don't read the Description. Another way to ensure they're apprised of your suggestions is , when you initially upload your work, make the first comment to include your suggestions......they do read the comments, I've been told.

Thanks, Vivian. I appreciate that. Yes, that will work if the recommendation is something like "this looks best on matte paper."

However, the product I want to roll out I would like to offer only as prints and canvases, removing framed prints, metal, etc. And a blurb in the description saying "do not order this as a metal print, acrylic, etc..." doesn't work.

Selecting products to offer and not to offer would obviously be powerful and useful to a seller. My guess is the reason it is not being considered is because it would be a major coding task.

I never did get a reason. Just that it wasn't under consideration. It would be a very powerful selling tool. As I noted to Sean, the default could be that all options are checked and we could uncheck any option(s) we did not wish to offer.
