How to sell and price your art

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.
