I know there are a lot of computer knowledgeable people in our guild. Have a question for you. I have a granddaughter that is legally blind and is an awesome artist. She is wanting to set up a web site where she can sell her artwork and her crafts. Unfortunately all the ones she has tried so far want money. Is there anything out there that allows you to have a website and sell stuff without charging you? She is just trying to earn money to pay for her sport (Equestrian Vaulting) and wants so much to learn to be self sufficient. She can't drive, nor will she ever be able to drive, so is trying to find ways to make money at home.

Thought I would ask in case there is a website resource out there that wouldn't cost her to use.

I am not the most knowledgeable person in this field or even remotely knowledgeable in this field, but can't you set up a PayPal account of some sort that you can link to your website for this kind of stuff? I am not sure if it costs but I thought PayPal was free.

Your internet service provider in some cases offer free personal websites. You also might be able to just set up a Facebook page/Twitter account and sell through them. Good luck

Has she thought about Etsy? They'll definitely take a percentage of her sales, but it'll expose her to a lot more shoppers than would a stand-alone website.

Hi KR,

Did you ever find something for this? For myself and other artists, Patreon is a good way to go. They do take a bit off the top though. I think 15% of all sales but it's a great place to host stuff and pretty simple to setup.

My dear wife has been using etsy to sell stuff. It's actually been fairly lucrative for her too. I know there's a cost, but I believe its on a per posting basis. If you guys want to check out her crafts she's @ www.etsy.com/shop/cerebrallunchbox
