    You should definitely set up your own website and, if possible, sell licenses directly through the site. Not only does this mean that you will maximise the portion of sales income that goes to you instead of to the distributor, but it is also the best way to establish direct relationships with customers, which can lead to other kinds of work creating custom versions of fonts or new commissions.

    Making fonts available through Adobe Fonts’ subscription service seems to generate a good income for some foundries.

    Among the various distributors (resellers), the only one we work with is I Love Typography, mostly because of its commitment to fostering a strong type business that benefits the people who make and use fonts. [Full disclosure: we have an interest in ILT, but that is for the same reasons.]

    Another way to potentially increase sales is to collaborate or enter an alliance with another foundry or foundries. This can be particularly useful if the foundries specialise in different scripts or writing systems, and can complement each other’s offerings and provide joint services, e.g. extending an existing font family in one script to support another script.

    If you want to maximize your retail profits you need to market your work. You can be on every font vendor’s site and you’ll just disappear among tens of thousands of other fonts. I Love Typography is working hard to promote their foundry partners, but they still have to get their signal light seen by consumers inundated by the endless stream of new stuff hitting My fonts every day.

    But Adobe fonts is different. Users there discover typefaces by digging through the mix. I’m very happy about my relationship with Adobe.

    i'd like to join google fonts for sure, but can you please tell me how to be accepted and start work with them.

    I Love Typography periodically adds groups of new foundries (rather than adding them one-at-a-time). I’ll bring this thread to the attention of @Nadine Chahine. Where can we see examples of your work?

    You can file an issue on the Google Fonts github repository to have your work added. But that isn’t going to make you any money.
