Did, you know, that the oldest sculpture in the world is called “Lowenmensch” and it is carbon dated at 30,000 BCE. This means humans have been sculptors even before they were agriculturists. Interesting isn’t it? My point is we have come a long way and with the rise of the internet, increasingly many sculptors are toying with the idea to start selling sculptures online.

Why would you like to sell sculptures online?

The main benefit of selling sculptures online is you obviously do not need to pay the ‘split price’. In case if you don’t know about the split price, it is a commission charged by the art galleries as insurance for security, listing, and renting. It hovers between 20% to 50% of the sculptor’s entire profit margin. Another benefit is, your product will be noticed by art enthusiasts from around the world. Exciting isn’t it?

Now, comes the prime question, how will you sell sculptures online? Well, you can always signup for those dedicated websites that sell sculptures online. But the problem with these websites is they also charge some commissions and here most of the time the artists don’t get the recognition they deserve.

Another method that is currently in fashion with new-age sculptors is you build your own e-store and sell sculptures there. This is can be done by an online tool called Pabbly Subscription Billing. It can generate an e-store in minutes, where you list unlimited sculptures and generate limitless revenues. Other benefits include:

  • Collecting payments  in both offline and online mode
  • Unlimited product listing
  • Higher currency standards
  • Tax management

Seeing these features, the little Michealangelo inside you must be excited? Well, then lets set up an online shop to start sculpture business online.
