PhotoReflect costs have some pros and cons in the structure that existed as of May 2009, and these costs may prove to be a factor that would cause some digital photographers to choose to avoid using this service.
The primary advantage of PhotoReflect is there are no monthly or annual fees, nor are there charges for uploading digital images or setting up an account. This at first glance appears to set PhotoReflect apart from some of its competitors, which can charge hundreds of dollars per year for basic membership, uploading, and setup fees.
However, this may be better for some photographers than the current structure of PhotoReflect - they charge as much as 18% commission on each order placed through the website. This means for every $50 made on the website, the entrepreneur retains only $41. Very high volume sellers will have the commission fees slightly reduced as their earnings rise, but the lowest available percentage is still a somewhat steep 13 percent.
For those who want to do occasional orders and don't mind losing as much as 18 percent per order, PhotoReflect may be an ideal choice. However, paying a lot of 18 percent fees can really make it where another website might be more appealing.
