Aperture 3 and Photo Book Plug In
General Interest

I agree that an Aperture plugin would be the decision maker for me on whether to do my larger books on Blurb or Aperture.  Right now only my smaller books that are quick to do are on Blurb….but you would have ALL my biz if a plugin were available.

Processing fees for both Blurb and Paypal
Ordering and Shipping

Hi,   I searched the forums to find out an answer to my question but couldn’t see where anyone had mentioned this

 The small Paypal  fee charged by Blurb sounds like the best deal  for getting paid for book commissions at the offset, but there is another fee added on at the Paypal end as well. which is 2.9% of your commission  + .30 per transaction fee taken off the book sellers profit.

The Paypal percentage could add up depending on how much profit one is getting per month from book sales.

The 5.00 check processing fee could actually be a better deal for some…a loss for others making hundreds/thousands in profits.  It’s worth crunching the numbers anyway
