    I tried ePay several years ago, a big flop. I post a lot of images on pbase and sold a few, no biggie. I have not really worked at marketing online, but I know no one who has succeeded at making any real money at online sales unless they have a dedicated site and are very active at marketing they work.

    Agreed - it is largely about how you market yourself (along with great images).

    I'm trying out http://www.zenfolio.com right now. Seems pretty good.

    All of the artists in our art gallery also have their own websites. Not one of them makes any money from it, nor do I from mine. I think I've made maybe $200 in 4 years from my own site.

    Unfortunately, unless you're a "known" name, it's really hard to get people to come to your site. People don't like buying art online. They like to see it in person.

    Right now, I have my own website, but haven't gotten around to selling. That Zenfolio looks pretty snazzy.
