What are DPW Auctions and how much do they cost?

What are DPW Auctions?

The idea for DPW Auctions grew out of our desire to have access to art specific auctions that are easy to set up and friendly to buyers. DPW Auctions are a much more affordable alternative to eBay and are specifically for paintings and the folks who love to buy them.

It's as if Etsy and eBay had a kid who only wanted to paint!


DPW Auctions are offered as part of a subscription membership package, which will include:
  • Integration with your blog - with automatic nightly or on demand pulls
  • A searchable Gallery/Store page displaying all your work in DPW (just like the featured artists' galleries).
  • The DPW Auctions
  • You can continue to sell your work through PayPal, Etsy, or even eBay, if you'd like, or even mix and match. In fact, DPW integrates with eBay, pulling in your auction statuses and current bids.
  • An Art Tracking page for managing and tracking your portfolio.
  • A Statistics page to track your store and auction traffic.
  • Never ending improvements and always evolving features.
How much will membership cost?

DPW general membership will cost $12.95 a month. This compares with eBay which offers a store/gallery page for $19.95 per month.

What will the per auctions costs be (compared to eBay)?
