Learn more about selling portraits

  • You can start selling your own portrait creations through an ecommerce website, such as a Shopify website. Shopify has mobile-friendly website themes that can get your business online in a flash, and plenty of tools to help you build long-lasting relationships with customers.

  • You can sell portraits directly through your online store, like your Shopify store. A Shopify-powered portrait store gives you access to more than 100 payment getaways, including bitcoin, so you can sell your art to people around the world.

  • Selling your portraits on Shopify is easy. Use the Shopify mobile app to manage your inventory, contact customers, fulfill orders and attend to whatever requires your attention — all while on-the-go or from the comfort of your living room. Shopify also allows you to sell physical and digital products, so you can get creative with your portrait formats.

  • Artwork can be priced in different ways, but Shopify's profit margin calculator can help you arrive at a profitable price. You can also conduct a market analysis to discover the standard market prices.
