The thing is, this offer need at least 20,000 member to get activated.
As of today, there are already 2,000 sign ups.
The details are available here - ARTFIRE GROUP DEAL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND FAQ and here is an excerpt from it:
This promotional rate offer is made contingent on a “group discount” model where the promotional rate is guaranteed to be activated only after a total of 20,000 users also accept the offer within the offer window ( a date range TBD by Artfire.com). In the event that the group discount minimum is not met, the promotional rate may still be activated at the sole discretion of ArtFire.com , however, activation of the promotional rate is guaranteed only after the minimum number of users accept the offer. Once activated, the promotional rate of $5.95 becomes your permanent locked in rate as long as you maintain your subscription.OK, I am very confident they will get 20,000 registration without much problem. If you have been considering ArtFire, this is the best time to become a PRO seller at ArtFire.
Here is the Group Deal page leading to the sign up page.
Otherwise, tell your friends about it. There is no hidden fees.
Oh..and I am not making anything out of this.
I just feel that this is a very good alternative venue to sell handcrafted items online.
As PRO members, there are various tools available to promote your shop.
I am salivating over them...hehehe...I want! I want! I want!...LOL...
