BUYERS, there is no need to register to shop! Purchase unique fine art, handmade crafts and creatively re-purposed items directly from shop merchants.
SELLERS, there are no upfront fees and no need for your credit card information! Your store checkout partners with Canada Post and PayPal directly. ArtCommons.ca receives a modest 12% commission once you sell. Contact us if you are interested in building your shop. We can help you acquire the skills to manage your shop.
ArtCommons.ca is ready to be challenged by your individual business requirements as there are many marketing opportunities available to explore. For example, at ArtCommons.ca buyers can "shop by theme" or "shop to make a difference". An individual, agency, group, event, association or organization can propose a theme. Then participating shop merchants can market a selection of items so buyers can shop by a theme or a worthy cause. Contact for more information.
