You’ve built a website - and it’s showing off your art just fine - but now you want your art to start selling. There are a ton of reasons I recommend having an ecommerce store, but what if you are skeptical about spending the extra money to upgrade your website builder when you don’t feel ready?

Maybe you just need to build up your confidence a little and sell a few paintings before you make a recurring investment in a store for your site.

Or maybe you truly can’t afford it and you’re willing to do a little extra work in order to get the job done without spending any cash.

Either way… I have a solution for you that will work with just about any website builder.

It’s called a PayPal button.

I've had a lot of questions about how to use one lately, so I thought I'd make you a little tutorial video. 🙂

Here’s what you need to sell art with PayPal:
  • Set up a PayPal business account
  • check
    A website builder that will let you enter a snippet of HTML code (I haven't used any that doesn't have this option, yet)

Watch the video below to see how it's done and if you think selling art with PayPal might be the perfect option for you!

What do you think? Will you start selling art with PayPal, or would your rather just pay to upgrade your art portfolio into an art store?

About the Author

Jessica's college experience was spent falling in love with getting her hands dirty. She showed her paintings at art galleries all over the city, but kept waiting to "make it". After the galleries took 30-50%, she would never be able to pay the bills. Determined to learn where she was going wrong, she took a job at a marketing firm where she managed over 50 projects at a time for three years, then ran her own web design company for the next three. Combining all of her unique skills, she opened The Artist Market Co. to teach artists techniques to create a thriving online business from their craft.
