Fine Art America is the world's most powerful sales and marketing tool for photographers and visual artists.
Simply open an account, upload your images, set your prices for all our available products, and you're instantly in business! FAA provides you with an e-commerce website, fulfills your orders for you, and sends you your profits each month.
The widgets are totally unbranded. You can add them to your website... and visitors to your website can then buy prints from you... and your buyers will never know that your shopping cart was powered by FAA until the prints actually arrive on their doorsteps.
Okay so now the color changes and personalization aren't working for me again, I changed it and didn't like it and went to change it again and every time I upload a new background it just pops up as the one before it, and at this point it won't let me do any changes to any of the others either...
Thanks for the new toy Sean. Have to start playing and find out how I can utilize it!

For now, I made another account just to use for the shopping cart and to upload only what is also on my site or in the same style. Hope it will get possible to select specific galleries or images so that there's no need to have a separate account just to do that.
A thing I noticed is that when the images are viewed as a group ( like the six images per page ) the title of the work is shown underneath each image but when the title is too long it is cut off ( like on the FAA pages ). Clicking on the title or the image will lead to the image but without its title.
FIrst of all, thank you for taking the time to create this widget. I am helping a friend add it to her site and we have successfully done that - with one exception. The widget only rotates through the first 12 images from her FAA site. Is there a way to make it iterate through all of her images? You can find here widget on this page: http://www.janboyd.com/fine_art_collection.php
Can someone talk me through how to do this on a WordPress blog? I've tried posting a "Text" widget- and only the words "Fine Art America" show up at the bottom of my page. I've tried adding a new post with the link.... and all that shows up is the jibberish showing what page it would lead to. Any advice? Thanks, Bev
I've added this very cool widget to my site, however the display order in the galleries does not match the display order which I set up on the FAA site. How do I get the display order to match once I've selected a gallery? Thanks!
Thanks Isabella, I think you're responding to me when you say that the widget is my images page and that's what it will show. So, is there a way to control the display on the images page like there is on FAA? I guess I'm not exactly sure which images page you are referring to either. Thanks for your help!
. . Aloha Shauna . . it depends on the size you choose to display for the number of images in your shopping cart widget . . my largest shopping widget displays 944 images . . it's large and beautiful . . you'll see it in my comment near the top of this forum . . .
Per Isabella: "The widget is your images page and that is what it will show."
In my mind, that is the design problem of the widget.
Ideally, I'd like the widget to be for one and only one image, so I can link an image on my website to the corresponding image on FAA.
I can do that, almost, by linking each image on my website, to the image page on my AW site. But I think that's a bit confusing to the user, somehow, particularly in terms of navigation back to my website. I think that it needs to be a little more seamless, and image specific, so I can use the widget to sell ALL my images on my website.
When you say "right into your own website" are you meaning our AW or our other, outside of FAA websites?
The AW already have the shopping cart and why would I care if the buyer knows it is coming form FAA or not unless
I am going to get the buyers information like email address, name and street address. That would be valuable to me.
One of the many things I don't understand but hey, there is world of things I don't understand! lol
Since this is the Sean official topic on the widget, I thought I would post here... Great job, first off... I was wondering if there was a way to keep the background image to follow through when you click on images and onward through checkout? Thanks I always enjoy cool useful additions..
First off, I'd like to say that overall I like the shopping cart widget. It's a great tool for those of use who have our own websites. So thank you for making it available! What I'd really like to see added is greeting cards and phone cases so I don't have to send customers to an external website for those. Now that Pixels.com is up, perhaps it's just a matter of adding a widget that links to the Pixels.com galleries instead of the FAA galleries. Then artists would have the option of using either one, depending on what products they want to make available on their own website.
