This is actually the first website that I started to sell my works. I just got an invitation via email to be a part of their growing artists so I decided to give it a try. That was way back June. So for two months now so far I’ve made around $13. Not bad. I just became so active uploading my works and promoting it online lately. Even if you haven’t got an invitation you can still be an artist on their website. On the bottom part of the page there is a SELL link. Click that and join. Fill up the form and they will evaluate your works. So better make sure you have a portfolio to show. I suggest you use Behance ’cause it’s really helpful and that’s where I put my works. The commission you’ll get will depend on the type of case people will purchase. You just really need to upload designs once in a while and put it on your social media sites. I use pinterest, instagram, facebook, tumblr and wordpress in promoting mine. You’ll also be needing to set-up your paypal account so you can get paid. I have my savings account through BDO and it comes with an atm debit card and it is linked to paypal so that’s what I’m using. You’ll be deducted $1.00 (46.00 pesos) in your account as part of verification process. Commission for phone cases would be around $3.50-$4.50 while for the ipad case, macbook sleeves ,and apple band watch would be around $4.50 to $6.50.

This is by far my favorite one (even though I just joined yesterday!). I just love its user interface and there are lots of stuff you can put your designs in which is totally perfect. You’ll have a lot of variety to choose from. Perfect site to buy gifts. From Iphone Cases, Art Prints, T-Shirts, Pillows, Tote Bags, etc., they have it. To sign up and join click get started and there will be two options: Discover Art and Upload Art. Choose the Upload Art so you can submit your designs. You also need to verify your paypal account and again $1 (46 pesos) will be deducted from your account as part of verification process. Once you place your design you have the option to choose on what type of items would you want it to be placed on. There are also size guides to follow for each type of item. Like for example, the phone case would be 1300px by 2000px. You can sort out and make a collection so people can easily see the designs. Like on my page I made a collection for floral and watercolor art. So when they click on it they can see all your designs which has floral and watercolor design in it. The commission is pretty good too! Depending on the product but it ranges around $1.50 to $15.00.

As for Vida, I just also got an invitation via mail to collaborate with them and send my designs. However, I am not that active here and I rarely publish my designs. They are more on garments, like shirts, scarfs, sheer wraps, dresses, and tops. But since I really wanted to make additional income online and sell my art I’ll start to upload again my designs. You get %10 of net sales as part of your commission and payment is on a quarterly basis which is again thru paypal.

There are actually a lot more websites where you can sell your art. There’s Zazzle, Threadless, Cafe Press, Redbubble, Etsy., etc. I only posted the sites which I’m in but you can check out the others too. They also have great platforms and commissions for artists. You just need to be patient and promote your works all the time. It would be really really helpful being active in different social media sites also by asking your friends to help in sharing them. Build your network. And just keep uploading your works. At first I was really hesitant because sometimes I can see that people are viewing and liking my works and yet no one is buying them. Also, I’ve a lot of competitors. But it’s really how you market your product. Again, just share and promote your products.
I hope I can help my fellow artists earn as well by doing this blog post. 🙂
