0200. What is DPW Membership, what does it offer, and how do I join?

What does membership offer?
  • Your own DPW Gallery Website displaying all your work in DPW, which you can customize with your own categories, fonts, colors, and even with your own domain name!
  • Showing your art on DPW: 
    • on the front What's New page
    • in the Daily Email sent to over 4,000 subscribers a day
    • on the Search page
  • Integration with your blog - with automatic nightly or on-demand pulls. No worries if you don't have a blog - one is not required. You can easily add new paintings by hand into your DPW portfolio.
  • DPW Auctions - affordable, art specific, and buyer friendly (see below for per auction fees)
    • In DPW, you can sell your work through DPW Auctions, PayPal, Etsy, or 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 evolving features.
Is General Membership juried or limited?

No, unlike the Featured Artists, General Membership is not juried or limited.

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 $15 per month.

What are the Featured Artists?

DPW offers two levels of membership - General and Featured.

Featured Artists have their own page and pay more for their membership. Additionally, their work appears at the top of the What's New page and the Daily Email.

Currently DPW is not accepting new featured members.

General Members have the same access to the features of DPW, as do Featured Artists, including being shown on the front What's New page and in the Daily Email, a personal Gallery/Store page, the Art Tracking portfolio management page, the traffic Statistics page, and the DPW Auctions.
