    Very insightful. I joined FASO 6 years ago….and not even ONE sale. I use it only for website info on my business card. Luckily, I market heavily via other means. Represented well by a local gallery, I do quite well. FASO Owner Clint Watson is the only one making loads of money!

      The only thing I can give them credit for is helping me to set up my Instagram and Facebook business store. I have sold 4 pieces through that, but nothing through FASO, which I no longer have.

    I debated staying with FASO because I have made several higher cost sales through them. I like the control I have to make changes myself and the cost is affordable for what you get. Although, I wasn’t aware, until recently, of bigcartel that may be better. I got absolutely no response from paid ads but good responses from unpaid promotion through their competition. My issue now is I need a more high end look to my site and getting even a custom logo uploaded at good quality and size is proving challenging for support. So, I’m looking for some help because it would appear that I am locked in for a whole year according to their refund policy! Not happy about that. A pro rated refund should be available for those that want to leave an annual membership early. Any advice on how to get a better design created?

      Christina, the problem you face is that if you use proprietary systems like FASO or Shopify, you are locked in to, and limited by, their cookie cutter designs. I created my own design with WordPress ( is my full time company) and used WP estore for my catalog, but I am finding that program a bit limited as it does not upload to a Google Merchant Center in a usable way. I am currently looking for a different system that will work with Facebook/Instagram merchant centers and Google’s. None of these outlets make it easy to figure out a database (excel,e.g.) layout that will upload and match their system requirements.
