Wix Art Store: About the Wix Art Store

7 min read
Wix Art Store is currently not available to all users. As of October 2022 it is no longer possible to add the Wix Art Store to your site. Alternatively, you can add Wix Stores to your site and connect it to Printful to sell your art.
The Wix Art Store lets you showcase and sell digital and printed artwork effortlessly.

Adding art to your Art Store

Add the artwork you want to sell to your Wix Art Store, directly from the Editor. We recommend uploading high-resolution images only. The higher the resolution, the larger the prints you can offer in your store.

Add text that appears when clients hover over your images. Links added to your images appear only in the Expand Mode.

To add art to your store:

  1. Click the Wix Art Store in your Editor.
  2. Click Manage Media.
  3. Click Add Media on the top right.
  4. Click Image.
  5. Select the images you want to upload.
  6. Fill in the information on the right:
    • Title: Enter the image title.
    • Description: Enter the image description.
    • Alt Text: Enter a description to improve your site's SEO and accessibility.
    • Link: Add a link to the image:
      1. Click the Link  icon.
      2. Select the link type and enter the link details.
      3. Click Done.
  7. Click Done.

  • You can upload images up to 40 MB in size in the following formats: JPG, PNG, GIF. You can also add videos or text to your Art Store, but only images can be sold.
  • If you upload an image over 1200 pixels, Wix Art Store automatically creates a smaller version of the file which you can sell for a lower cost than the original file.

Customizing your art store

With Wix Art Store, you can present your images in a way that truly showcases your work. Art Store galleries offer fully customizable layouts, allowing you to adjust aspects such as gallery spacing, scroll direction, orientation, automatic looping and sliding, and much more.

You can customize the design of your Wix Art Store gallery for both the regular and hover views (the view a customer sees when hovering over the gallery).

To customize your art store:

  1. Click your Wix Art Store gallery in the Editor.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Layout, Design and Advanced tabs to customize how your art store looks and behaves.

Selling your art

With the Wix Art Store, you can sell both digital images and prints. Wix Art Store works with a third-party service, Order a Print, to give you even more options when selling your art work. Order A Print provides a complete print-on-demand service for you to sell your digital images and prints online
