Selling through PayPal

Selling through PayPal

The simplest and most direct way to sell your art in your DPW is through links to a PayPal checkout page. When purchases are made through PayPal links created in DPW, the work sold is automatically marked as sold and paid, the buyer's information is pulled in and you receive a notification email.
 
To do this, you need to create a PayPal link ("Buy URL") for each work or art you want to sell through PayPal.
 
Set up your PayPal Checkout First
 
As with selling through DPW auctions, you have to set up your PayPal checkout before being able to create PayPal links.
 
You can read about how to do that here.
 
How to Create PayPal Links
 
1. Sign in to your DPW account, if not already, and go to your Art Tracking Grid .
 
2.  Select the Create PayPal Link in the I want to... menu in the Task column of the grid.
 
You can also find the I want to... menu in the popup that opens when you click on the thumbnail of one of your artworks.
 
 
3. Fill in the information in the dialog box that pops up (it will be remembered for next time):
 
 
Important: After you have created the PayPal link, you will be presented with a URL that is the same as the URL in the Buy URL  column in your  Art Tracking grid. You can copy and paste this URL into your blog post, website, and/or emails, if you wish. Using this URL will take your buyer to a page for your painting in DPW where the buyer's region is taken into account to calculate shipping, as is described below.
 
4. Click the Create PayPal Link  button and you are done!
 
Here's what the PayPal link looks like in the painting pop-up:
 
 
And, here's what the buyer sees when they click it, if they are not logged in (they go directly to PayPal if they are):
