101 Free Art Websites to Help Artists Sell Their Art

101 Free Art Websites to Help Artists Sell Their Art post image

We’ve recently researched free websites where artists may market, promote and sell their arts and crafts.  These sites either have free membership options or do not charge the artist set-up and maintenance fees.  Some of them are totally free to the artist, while others charge the artist commissions on their art sales.   

In the case of Print-on-Demand (POD) websites, they provide the artist with royalty amounts on sales made.   Or in some cases, the POD will pay the artist an amount over their base price as compensation. 

Interested artists should check the website’s FAQ, Terms & Conditions or the Sellers Terms to find out their current membership fees, additional costs and commissions.  If that information is not on the website, the artist should contact the site directly for their specific terms for artist’s sales.

Besides the giant art websites and social media platforms such as www.art.com, www.craigslist.org, www.etsy.com, www.facebook.com, www.pinterest.com and www.twitter.com these are additional websites which may help an artist to market, promote and sell their art. 

We cannot guarantee that these website’s terms and conditions will always apply since they are all subject to change.  We also cannot guarantee the effectiveness of any of these websites in marketing, promoting or selling your art but think they are worth considering.  Here they are in alpha order;
