I want to sell paintings on ebay. But I also want to charge a high-ish price (around $200, which is high for a no-name painter.)

Should I just sell a bunch of negative-profit shit to boost my sale count? I don't know if I can sell $200 paintings with a single digit net to my ebay handle.

Steak unrelated.

How are you valuing your paintings right now? By the time and materials involved?

EBay is not the best place to sell art on if you are a person without any recognition.

It's purely commercial daubing. It's more that I value the time and materials according to what I think I can sell the end product for.

There's also the shipping issue. They need to be protected with some light wood packaging, and this drives up the shipping price; I need to either factor it into the asking price, or jack up the asking price so that the listed shipping price doesn't seem ridiculous.

I like art but prefer food. In any case I'll be signing these trashy things under a pseudonym.

Don't jack up the price to include high shipping. Always itemize, I.e. this is what the product is and this is what the shipping is and your total is this. Say the shipping may seem high, but that's because we take extra special precautions to make sure the item arrives at your address in the same condition it left us. You have to build value for your product, you can't just expect some stranger to give you money for it.

Why don't you try to sell locally to start?

That's a good idea. Making a virtue of necessity.

The local art market is so dead that not even Picasso prints can sell.

1. this isn't how the art world works and it will not be a successful venture. But hey you do you

2. I would think Etsy would be better for this; smaller market but full of women who are dumb and loose with cash

The "art world" does not contain paintings worth only $200. Maybe impromptu sketches. I'm only selling to people who browse ebay like a flea market, which is why I'm charging flea market prices - which are nonetheless just high enough that the buyer will want some assurance I'm legit.

I'll check etsy out. I thought it was mostly for bracelets and impractical looking wooden cases for mobile phones.

...OK, this seems to be a good platform.
