It is called business secret , if you know how other business make profit then it is not more a business ? It is like asking a singer how he can sell his music when other sing the same by your ear , when in fact you can be tone deaf!

Nobody will answer that questions it all depends of you if you will be the best.

And to everybody , there it is not a safe income job in this world , the investor lose money he close the business ... an entrepreneur must learn that first and take the risks , if you can`t assume the risks of fails and wins then entrepreneurship it is not for you. Yes starting a business it is not for everybody , and there are secrets you learn in practice , fails and wins , multiple fails and maybe less wins. There it is no recipe to success , it is your ability to reach the market.

Sorry guys. I'm asking not for shop secrets. It's a simple statistic (pie graph) on average shop volumes.
(margins can be chosen in a way that they don't harm the shop's anonymity)

More then 7500 items sold over SW (but still a hobby)

Thing is the "business secrets" apply not only to the individual shops, but to shapeways as a whole as well. If they would want to tell their competitors just how successful their business model and their wild mixture of shop themes is, they would probably not limit themselves to reporting only the total
number of shops.

Basically by law they only can provide : 1) how much shops are open on Shapeways 2) numbers of files printed at Shapeways /uploaded.

If some shop owners want to share how much they make it is their decision only.

So what it is shared on TV/Blog/Youtube it is all you can get about that.
