Experienced ArtFire sellers will tell you that ArtFire ( is fantastic for getting your creations in front of shoppers seeking one-of-a-kind or handmade items.

  • Tiered pricing allows smaller-scale artisans to pay a smaller monthly fee and no additional listing fees.
  • A very active community of ArtFire shop owners.
  • Great customer service for buyers and sellers, including helping shop owners with SEO, social media, and other online marketing strategies to rank in Google search results.
  • The ability to sell up to 10 items at a time for free or an unlimited number of items for a set fee.
  • Random search results (not the newest item first), which allows you a better chance of exposure if your listing isn’t new.
  • The ability for shoppers to buy on without setting up an account by entering credit card and shipping details during checkout (lower barrier to entry!).
