Can my paintings be For Sale on the Boldbrush contest site?

FASO is constantly finding ways to assist you with marketing and selling your art.

When you enter the BoldBrush Online Competition, yes, by all means, you can indicate that a painting is for sale.

When visitors to the contest site decide to purchase a piece, they will be taken to YOUR website to complete the checkout process.

What this means is that YOU make the sale, and you get access to all the collector information for your own mailing list and future marketing efforts.

Track Sales and Customers

You need to have a FASO website in order for this feature to function.

Make sure you enable ecommerce in your FASO account control panel and add the retail price to the painting.

    Our plan, originally, was to take a very small percentage fee of that sale for the marketing, support and referral.  However, during the COVID19 crisis, we are waiving even that small fee.
