Who can join?

DPW is an open and inclusive community of artists showing and selling together
Our approach is to offer buyers a large and varied selection of art and give them powerful and easy to use search tools to find what they love.
  • We'd love for you to join us if your work is your own original art, in natural media, and is 2D. This includes oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen & ink, charcoal, colored pencil, graphite, mixed media, etc.
  • Only one artist per account and each artist may only show their own work.
  • There is no requirement on size, frequency of painting, or having a blog. Daily Paintworks offers new paintings everyday, but you don't have to!
  • While all currency in DPW is in US Dollars, as long as you have a PayPal account, it doesn't matter where you live.
  • When you join, you will be billed automatically, once a month beginning the day you join, through your PayPal account. You can cancel at any time with the simple click of a button and your account will automatically be canceled at the end of your current billing cycle.

Subscribe to the DPW General Membership

Please read and agree to the following and scroll down to click the PayPal Subscribe button at the bottom to join DPW.

What you can show and sell on DPW
You are welcome to show and sell work on DPW that meets the following criteria:
  • the work has been created by you
  • it is original art and not reproductions or copies of another artist's work
  • it is done in natural media, which includes, but is not limited to: oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastels, colored pencil, pen & ink, charcoal, graphite, or mixed media.
  • it would not be considered offensive to a reasonably minded person
  • it is 2 dimensional

Work that does not meet these criteria will be removed without notice and repeated violation of these rules may result in your loss of membership.

DPW Automatic Billing

To join, you will pay US $12.95 for your first month, which begins the day you join and will be automatically billed each month, using your default funding method in your PayPal Account for the monthly subscription fee of US $12.95. This will require no action on your part as your payment will be automatic. Just be sure that you have sufficient funds in your PayPal account's default funding method.

Additionally, you will be billed, at the same time you are billed for your membership fee, for any 3% DPW Auction commission fees you have incured. There are no listing fees for DPW Auctions.

You only pay DPW fees, beyond your membership fee, for your use of DPW Auctions. You are not charged any fees by DPW for any other type of selling method, such as using PayPal directly (not through DPW Auctions), Etsy, eBay, gallery page, blog, or email.

You are billed for your membership fee in advance, each month, while the auction fees are always billed for the previous month.

Please keep in mind your billing month begins on the calendar date you joined. For example, if you join today, your next automatic payment would be made on or shortly after 11/24/2014.

How to cancel

You can cancel your account anytime you want by simply clicking the Cancel My Account button on your Account Info page. If you have any active DPW Auctions with bids, you will have to wait until those auctions have ended before canceling. Your monthly membership fee is not refundable, however once you cancel, while you will be billed for any active DPW Auction fees, you will not be billed for any further membership fees.

Blog Integration

DPW can pull in your painting image and information from RSS standards-compliant blog feeds, which include Google's Blogger, Feedburner, FineArtStudiosOnline.com, and Wordpress blogs. If your blog feed is not standards-compliant, DPW cannot guarantee to be able to integrate with and pull from it. If this is the case, or you don't have a blog - no worries! It is very easy to manually upload paintings into DPW.

Show your work on DPW

When you join DPW, buyers will find your latest painting on the front page and can use DPW's easy to use search bar to find all your work by genre, media, size, title, keyword, artist, and dominant color.

The front page shows all the work that was posted the previous day. So, to be on the front page, all you have to do is post. Further, the more you post the more exposure you get.

To help your buyers watch your work, they can select you as a favorite and with a click of the favorites button they can limit all their searches to just who they want to see.

Sell with DPW Auctions

Auctions are pure market - your buyers compete to set the price they are willing to pay. This is so much easier and more effective than you guessing. In short, we believe there is no better way to sell your work online.

The problem is, eBay is expensive. And big. And they sell everything!

DPW Auctions are only about art and they are friendly to your buyers with auto-extension, ensuring the buyer who wants to pay the most can, and auto-refresh.

DPW Auctions are affordable. You don't pay anything to list or relist, ever. Then, when you sell, you only pay 3% of the winning bid.

It's like if Etsy and eBay had a kid that only wanted to paint! Cool.

Manage, Integrate, and Track

It is easy to manage your art in DPW using your Art Tracking grid.

If you have a blog, then DPW will integrate with it and automatically pull your posts every day. Or, you can choose to pull from your blog any time you wish.

If you don't have a blog, no worries - it is easy to quickly upload images and enter your paintings in DPW.

You can also track your DPW Auctions in the grid, including eBay auctions, since DPW integrates with eBay, pulling in your auction statuses and current bids.

DPW also lets you track your traffic in DPW and in your DPW Gallery, letting you see how many views, buy, blog, and gallery clicks each painting gets.
