    Thank you for writing the list, but I have to disagree with two of the sites that you have listed. As a seller, I have not made any sales from Artbreak. And I found Etsy to be unreliable with paying the seller. I would not recommend using those two sources to sell your art.

    Hi, i’m French and i wonder, which one is international ?

    • http://www.makemoneyinlife.com James W

      Hi Kadongo, I think that most of these websites are international. If there are any boundaries when it comes to selling art, I’m sure that their support will help you to go over that obstacle. thanks for stopping by :)

    As far as Selling prints of your work, there is etsy, cafepress, zazzle, and deviantart. Etsy for me is too much of a hassle b/c I need to actually handle the shipping and printing and everything. Personally I use SMugmug.com as a printer and shipper of my work. they give you a whole gallery option and pricing plans. They have their bare minimum prices, and you keep anything over that amount. Say it costs them $2.30 to print out and ship an 8×10 print. if you price it for $12, you get 10 bucks.

    Here is an example of my smugmug gallery.

    Also, you want to get all of your social media networks on par with one another, make it easy for people to be connected with you. on my homepage http://Obilex.com you can see that I have links to all of my different outlets (twitter, facebook, instagram ebay etc.)

    Hope this helps, and keep up the hard work!
