Your seller profile is your personalised homepage on Artailer. Most times, the seller profile page is the next page a buyer visits after the product page.
Since customers love to know the creative talent behind the piece they wish to buy. Use this opportunity to brand yourself and your artworks from the competition by bringing the buyer into your world with a compelling story.
Buyers expect to find out more about the seller on the profile page. A successful profile will have a bio, location (city and country), feedback, profile image, and links to other artworks you have for sale.
A complete and personalise profile page increases consumer confidence in you and what you offer. It also builds brand awareness, trust, and engagement. You can update the following items by clicking on the SELLER PROFILE on your Dashboard

Tips for Creating a Successful Profile
To make the most of your profile page, consider these tips when customising it.
Profile Image: A profile image humanises your seller profile. It gives a sense of ownership and put feelings behind the art images and text in your shop. Your profile picture should be clear and measures 300px X 300px. Read this policy on Profile Image
Cover Image: This is an extension of your brand. It may be a picture of you at work, collage image of your artworks, or any one of your artworks.
Social Media Profiles: Give your prospective buyers more ways to connect with you. Use this feature as an opportunity to increase your community outside of Artailer. Put up links to your social media profiles (see the table above). Don’t be shy to ask your visitors to follow you on your social media channels.
Shipping Policy: Use this section to orientate your prospective buyers how their purchase will be shipped. Are you using homemade shipping art box or deluxe shipping art box? Describe the bell and whistles of the unboxing experience your buyers will get.
Return Policy: How would you like your buyers to handle returns of your shipments. Do you want them to contact you personally before launching a return request?
Tell a Story or Artist’s Bio: Write a compelling story that will resonate with the visitors to your shop. Avoid the art jargons, laundry list items, and features of your style of practice. Use simple Language to tell your story.
