The methods for selling designs online depends on the nature of the design, though in most cases it is possible to create your own website to sell the designs regardless of the medium. Other options include creating a storefront on an e-commerce site such as TeeSpring.com or Etsy.com or sell the designs on a digital marketplace.
One direct way to sell your designs online is to create your own website, either as a personal site that contains shopping features or as a fully functioning Web store. If you are selling physical goods, you need to take pictures of the products to post on the site and include details about the quantities available. Websites such as Shopify.com offer tools for integrating digital storefronts into a website, along with aiding in other aspects of inventory tracking, invoicing and payment processing. When selling digital designs, make sure that paying customers have direct access to the files.
Another option is to sell the products through an existing service or marketplace, which does not require you to have our own site. Etsy.com enables users to sell a wide range of physical crafts and goods and includes a dedicated storefront and payment processing, though it leaves shipping to the sellers. TeeSpring.com allows users to sell T-shirt designs, handling the manufacturing of the shirts as well. ThemeForest.net allows Web designers to create design packages for content-management systems and sell them to other users.
