I like the idea of just taking a percentage in store credits. That would suit me fine, and probably be something I’d be more likely to consider over taking actual payment for sales.
It’s really about the amount of work involved. I’ve done file sales before. The tax situation on self-employed people is tricky, and very high, since a lot of the caps on taxes like Social Security don’t exist for us. I’d probably have to pay close to 48% total tax rate on any income from sales, although I honestly haven’t looked into it in a few years. It’s a real disincentive.
If I can, I’ll try to work something out with GF, (if they’re interested), later. I need to see where they’re going with this first. I suspect my initial assumptions about where they wanted to take this were skewed by my previous experience, so I’m trying to give it a bit of time and see what they’re actually doing before trying to push for inclusion in the catalog right now.
Besides, they’re really busy.
