Lesson 2 – Understanding your Artist Account on PrintOctopus

This is continued from our previous post, which talks about how to make an account on PrintOctopus. If you haven’t read that yet, click here to read it!

In your artist account, you will see various tabs.



Here’s a quick guide on all of them :

  • Dashboard – The dashboard shows a quick overview of your sales, royalty, account balance and the number of artworks.
  • Portfolio – Here, you will have the option of editing your social media links and you will also be able to see all your existing
    live artworks.
  • Manage Portfolio – In this tab, you can delete artworks, change royalty as well as add new artworks.
  • Review – Review is divided into 3 sections – Under Review, Accepted and Rejected. Under Review shows designs that you have uploaded but are under review, Accepted shows designs that have been accepted and are live, and Rejected shows artworks that have not been accepted along with the relevant reason.
  • Sales History – Sales History shows all the sales that you have been, the status of that order and royalty earned. You can
    also request your payment from this tab.
