Art for Sale

Updated: 07-Oct-2020:

In setting up items for sale a few issues come up for me, security, waste, and ease of use.  

Security:
I won't be running a store directly from my site and instead have chosen Etsy to handle my online retail. The primary reason is Etsy with their army of programmers have a better chance of keeping yours (and mine) credit card data secure. By not having a store I don't have to worry about credit cards, accounts/passwords, nor have cookies. 

Waste:
I have art that I am proud of and want to share it with you in various ways without creating waste. Waste by producing more that what may even sell. Therefore I am looking at working with Printify, a web service that offers print-on-demand products. I won't need to pony up a bunch of revenue to buy items in bulk that take up massive space in my small apartment. Printify integrates with my Etsy account so I can offer a wide range of items that might be of interest, and then they only get made when ordered. I am not 100% solidified on this yet as I am in the process of doing quality control analysis with serval items.

Ease of use:
To coincide with the above I want it to be easy to use for both my customers as well as myself. I ran an online store before and it's a bit more complex than the plug-and-play options that Etsy provide. Minus the Etsy and Printify fees i don't make much, and I'm okay with that. Etsy has been around for awhile and people know it's layout. 

So I plan on having more info soon, stay tuned!
