Make It Easier for Collectors to Buy Your Art by Customizing Your Ecommerce Buttons and Links

Did you know that you can make it even easier for collectors to buy your art by customizing the purchase buttons and links that appear on your artwork pages?

These custom buttons and links will replace the standard PayPal buttons and make it easier than ever for your collectors to buy your art.


One Major 'Call to Action' on Page

When ecommerce is enabled and the artwork is for sale, the Contact the Artist button will become a text link.

If no purchase button exists, the 'call to action' will be the Contact the Artist button.


Customize Functionality of the Buttons ~ Future Use Section

  • log in to your FASO account Control Panel
  • click Artwork icon (upper row)
  • click on artwork image (left column) or the word Edit (right column)
  • click Show Ecommerce_Settings_For_Future_Use
  • choose from the following:
    • CTA Button Options (Call to Action)
    • Framed Price
    • Shipping Included
    • Price Display Note

1. CTA ~ Call to Action Button

These allow you to create a custom 'call to action' (CTA) button that goes to any URL you want.  When these are used, they disable the purchase buttons that the FASO system generates.

NOTE: you don't need to integrate Paypal with your FASO account for this option to function.

These only work on templates with the new ecommerce functions.  See list below.***

  • for User CTA Button Text field, enter your text
    example: Purchase this piece on Etsy.
  • for User CTA Button URL, enter the url where the piece is for sale 
  • Save Changes

2.  Framed Price

You can enter a framed price. 

The art will get TWO purchase buttons. One for unframed (the existing price added to the RetailPrice field) and one for framed.  

Only use this if you wish to offer both options for purchase.  

  • for Framed Price field, enter the price
  • for Framed Price Display Note, enter descriptive content
    It is not mandatory to add content to the Framed Price Display Note field.
