How To Sell

What is the selling process?
The selling process basically occurs in the following order: You create your gallery with items available to purchase. A buyer purchases your item and you are immediately notified of the order. You enter the shipping cost, the buyer then pays and you receive the funds immediately in your PayPal account. You then ship the item to the buyer, and the process is complete.

How do I create and edit my site, gallery, or items?
Please refer to Editing Your Site/Gallery/Items.

How can I get digital images of my art for uploading to the Yessy website?
Please refer to Editing Your Site/Gallery/Items.

How much should I sell my art for?
There is no exact science to pricing your artwork. A beginning artist will normally price their artwork within a modest price range. It is a good idea to check what other artists at your stage are selling their artwork for and use that information to get an idea for what price range you should currently be in. As you become more well known and accomplished as an artist, the demand and price for your work should naturally increase. Keep in mind that your art can be valued higher if your prints are limited. Also keep in mind that some people purchase art as an investment, so you don't want to be in a situation where you have to lower the price of your art since this could deter some of your art buyers. In this situation, it is better to start low and raise the price when appropriate.

Some of the well known companies Yessy advertises with are Google, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, Netscape, CompuServe, AT&T, Earthlink,, and others.

How can I get more visitor traffic?

Use the Affiliate Program to link your art from other websites, and encourage others to do the same, which will increase your purchases while also earning you referral bonuses.

How am I notified of an order?
