  • Students will be asked to setup a Paypal account, or a Square account during this class. They do not need one before hand. (This process is free)

In this comprehensive class we will learn the ins and outs of selling your art, craft, design, or specialty online with maximum profits to you.

  • We will explore a variety of sales platforms and see how we can use them for our work. Each system has a series of benefits and drawbacks (most importantly, price.) Our way will ensure we get the most money possible into our account.
  • We will utilize some free (open source) software for putting together our complete e-commerce system in an intuitive, non-technically focused way.
  • We will walk through how to figure out your shipping costs, taxes, commission fees, and many other factors.
  • We will walk through the process of setting up downloadable items (digital products), like images, audio, and PDF files.
  • We will spend a good deal of time reviewing pricing. We will walk through how some people calculate the cost of their work, and I'll show you my formula for figuring out what I charge quickly and easily.

Also included in this class is a huge 70% discount on my full Wordpress class.


Included completely inside this class is my complete "Setting up an E-Commerce Site" class!

Essentially TWO complete courses for nearly free!

Praise for classes by Dr. Jason Allen:

  • "Without a doubt the best explanation and east of use that one can get. It leaves you enough room to go explore. The classes go by quick, so you can be on your way at being proficient. What are you wait for!"

  • "Amazing - Seriously Loved It! I took all his courses and have to say I'm so happy! Learnt loads! Jason is an awesome teacher!"

  • "I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going through this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me."

  • "I like these courses because you can get up and running quickly without having to spend hours of time wading through TMI (too much information!). Jason hits the high points but shows you what you need to know. Thanks!"

  • "I've watched many other videos on scales and chords before, however, this one has been the best. I now understand minor scales and chords and even how to analyze songs. It really gave me the confidence to start producing music because I feel like I have some structure and guidelines to follow. AWESOME!"

  • "Clear and Informative - Jason has a clear uncluttered style (with the important dashes of humor) of presentation that is focused on the important key aspects of this course. Recommended for those starting out!"

  • "Dr. Allen does it again with his music theory series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section, and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn't aware of."

  • "The Best Teacher Ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all means without giving what you don't want to know."

Who is the target audience?
  • Amateur artists, professional artists, hobbyists, or anyone with something to sell
  • Anyone with a website looking to incorporate credit card payments

An overview of how (and why) we work out this calculation. My way isn't for everyone, but it will give you a clear idea of one approach.
Preview 02:29

There are two main factors we will consider here: Cost of materials, and cost of labor. Labor can be tricky for an artist to figure out!
Preview 08:32

Once we have our labor costs and our material cost, we need to figure out what to sell our item for. I've got a formula I use, and in this video I'll walk you through it.

As with all things, a good amount of trial-and-error should be expected when finding the "sweet spot" for the price.
