I say paypal because devart is greedy. they take way too much for their cut just to use a widget.

Both definitely, also with an ption to split the payment: part in points and part in money. Eg. I have a few points collected but too few to commish but I'd like to make use of them somehow^^

Just I'd advise you to wait 2 weeks in case of points, because DA might cancel the payment just like that within 2 weeks - just for safety the payment won't be gone.

Omg that would be hard to do, since my points commissions will cost more due to dA royalty. :°(

Would it be 100p=1$ ? Like 20$ commission would cost 2000p? Or you add more extra for withdrawal(as long as you're a premium your withdrawals don't cost extra fee)? Or just more? You could just decide on your predicator how many points equal 1$ and use it for the split payments^^ Normally it's 100p to 1$ (some people get it wrong and take 80p for 1$ which doesn't work if you're paid with points but works when you buy points, it's like 1$->80p->0.80$ etc. because of that 20% DA takes when converting; in general it's bad to buy points just to buy a commission, that's why the split payment option would be nice)

Yes, similar to this. 100:points:=1$, but I can't really do split payments. :( There are also Paypal fees too and counting everything would be hard.

I would say you should try both. 
Give underaged the possibity to get art from you. 
I would die for a piece from you, too. 
I hope I will get in the future the chance to commish you for my punk. :'D 
Oh and... well... I have an open (RP)marriage. We thought it would be great to commish ya for a picture of these two guys. :eyes:
But later. 
Anyway. Thats my opinion, I hope I could help ya a bit. :)

If you ask me, I'd say Both, because your art
is hella rad and gorgeous, but there are people
who cannot afford them because they've got
no paypal yet, for example ME //smacked

If you'd keep that point commission widget open,
for a longer time than just week or so, a lot more
people would consider commissioning you.
Because some have a lot of points, but
are underage.

Tep, that's why I have considered it. The only thing is dA royalty over commissions, which is high and I should consider it. :(
