    Art.com has some celebrity posters that allposters does not have and vice versa. Regarldess of who you use first you should check to see what the other ones has and combine their product offerings to allow the greatest variety of products to your site visitors.

    Art.com has changed from inhouse to linkshare to inhouse again, so thats a hassle you might have to deal with again with having to change links. Keeping that in mind I suggest using Allposters first and Art.com only for things Allposters does not offer.

    Moviegoods also is a good first, they offer movie posters and not as much the celebrity/ general interest posters of the other two programs but they have a large variety and perhaps can be fit in as well.

    How I have used such programs in the past was Allposters first, then art.com for what they did not offer, and Moviegoods for posters from a movie if that applies. If none of these programs offer the photo or poster I woudl wish to link to I then link to ebay instead via specific search phrases that work.

    People have told me art.com performs better for them. I've never done well with either.

    Nintendo,

    Was there any particular reason for choosing art.com over allposters and postersupply ?

    Just Curious.

    I used both art.com and allposters.com on the sites. PosterSupply wasn't around when I made the sites.

    Here's some Art.com vs. Allposters numbers....

    AllPosters: 3,045 pageviews (my site pageviews) = zero orders.
    Art.com: 23,809 pageviews (my site pageviews) = 23 days with atleast one order. $352.79 in earnings.

    I'll give AllPosters until the end of the year to start generating orders and then if it's still dead, I'll make about 10 new poster sites using a different AllPoster script (One where each item has it's own item page), and a script for PosterSupply. Though there is hope, in the words of Pat who created the script I use...
    I've got one sub-affiliate doing $5000+ sales per month.

    Allposters is probably cheating you out of your commissions. No wonder, I am not excited about the shop i created for allposters.

    Percentage of business

    Nintendo,

    I'm curious - what percentage of your revenue is from posters?
    You have so may poster sites, that I simply must ask - although you mention that only art.com is turning any profit?

    Has anyone done an analysis of Art.com and Allposters in terms of usability?
    If one has a cumbersome purchase process, it'll lose people along the way.
    Also, if one has higher shipping/longer delivery times.

    I not, I'll have to "bite the bullet" and actually purchase something from each of them.

    As for "which one to use", the idea of using both has merit. A single rationalized (in terms of categories/subject) database could hold both companies product feeds. A simple application could be built to find unique/duplicate items and let you choose which ones to present on your site. You could even swap identical items from both sources and compare conversion rates (hint, hint). The site itself would look like a single catalog - the purchaser would only be aware at the time of purchase.

    This idea probably has a few concerns/wrinkles to be worked out, but it would present the best of both worlds. Maybe I should see if one of developers wants a "project" to work on?

    Sorry for bringing this topic up again. Searched the forum and only this one is regarding allposters.com.

    I don't trust allposters either. They got plenty of uniques directly to their page to buy the poster the person was viewing, but never a sale. A similar site selling through art.com on the other hand gets a decent conversion rate.
