Last week ArtFire rolled out a huge promotion - if they can get 20,000 people to sign up for a Pro account, those people can lock in for a lifetime rate of $5.95 per month. Up to 50,000 people can sign up - then the ArtFire Group Deal is gone. So far, over 4000 people have signed up.
Apparently $5.95 per month is all you'll pay - there are no listing or transaction fees!
Signing up costs nothing - if ArtFire fails to reach the 20,000 people minimum (which is unlikely) you owe nothing. What if you sign up and later decide to cancel? You are only obligated to pay a one month subscription fee at the $5.95 rate before canceling.
This is a no lose offer for me! Now having said that, I have had a basic ArtFire account for about a year and have not enjoyed the same amount of sales as on Etsy - but truthfully I have not put the same amount of energy into my ArtFire shop as on Etsy. With this offer, I feel the need to give ArtFire a real try. So yes, I have opted in for this great deal from ArtFire.
