I was just contacted by a new font site called Buyafont.com about selling with them and while the idea is intriguing, it also set off a number of red flags:
- 100% payment, no commission: this is the big one for me. How the hell are they going to stay in business that way?
- Delaware LLC: while they are listed as an actual business, it's in Delaware, which is known for its shelf companies.
- Spelling errors ("developpers") and grammatical styles (9.00AM - 8.00PM) that don't particularly pare well with standard American English. While that doesn't necessarily mean anything, tied in conjunction with the previous, it's a concern.
- 100% payment via Paypal. While again, a minor concern, if they're a legitimate business willing to do that amount of volume, why not upgrade to stripe?
I wanted to see if you guys had been approached as well, or if you did, had the same concerns. As for me, I'm staying clear for now.
