Tips on finding the best places online to sell your art

Remember that some websites will showcase your art for free (usually they don't do sales but act merely as a gallery) while others will handle transactions and take a fee for each piece of art sold. For example, one store could take a 10% fee. With another example, the fee could be placed for each listing you put up instead of taking a fee per sale made. On the famous "Etsy" arts and crafts site, they charge 0.25c per listing and do not take a commission fee. Be sure that you pay attention to this. You may want to mark up your prices accordingly so that way you'll still make a profit.
