When you receive an email that a piece has sold, tag it as Sold in your FASO control panel by changing the Availability. This will remove the Buy Now button from it:
We have a new feature that is in Beta (development) to automatically mark sold artwork as Sold. Here's how to try it out:
Click here to learn about Instant Payment Notification on Paypal's site. Or paste this into your address bar:
A) Copy (CTRL/C) the FASO artist website IPN notification URL:
(The URL links to your FASO site automatically.)
B) Enable Instant Payment Notification in your Paypal account:
Change the setting in your FASO account:
This system only marks a piece as sold once the buyer has fully checked out on Paypal. Just placing it in the shopping cart does not affect the status.
After the sale is complete, Paypal notifies FASO and we mark the piece Sold.
If the buyer does NOT return to your website from Paypal by clicking the return to website link, FASO will still pick up the sale details and mark the original as SOLD, once Paypal notifies FASO via their api (which can take a minute or two).
If your collector completes the purchase of a piece, it should be automatically marked as Sold if it meets the following 4 conditions.
When editing the artwork in your FASO Control Panel, make sure that:
4. IPN (Instant payment notification) is enabled in your Paypal account
A word from Clint Watson, FASO Founder and Head Developer:
We are currently testing another method involving when the customer returns from Paypal that will mark the piece(s) Sold as soon as the client returns, so it appears immediately. The code for the immediate return case is written; we just want to test it a bit more. Both pieces of code will stay in place, so if the client for some reason does not return, the piece(s) will still get marked Sold via the IPN method.
