Selling your artwork is an integral part and feature that our website for artists have. e-Commerce is built into our platform, allowing artists to sell their artwork directly on their own website and accept online payments. Artists can also market their artwork directly on ArtCall.org's global artwork marketplace allowing them to sell & market their artwork to a much broader audience. Listing on this artwork marketplace is free, and only a 15% commission fee (as opposed to 30%-40% which is common in galleries) is taken if the artwork is sold through our platform. There are no commission fees when you sell directly on your own website.
Not only do you get powerful e-commerce for your website visitors, but artsits & galleries can sell artwork (and any arbitrary item) in the admin console's virtual terminal.
