Category Schema

Go to your Category Schema Settings.

Create a department called "Cleared Art" or "Artwork" that all your artwork will fall under.

Your categories should be things like Abstract, Landscapes, Figurative, Sculptures, Photography, etc.

Artist names should be the subcategory of your inventory items. If you only sell or rent artwork, then enable the Use Artists as Subcategories? toggle in your Artist Settings so you don't have to add your artists to your category schema.

Use Artists as Subcategories Toggle


If Cleared Art is not your main business, don't enable the Use Artists as Subcategories toggle.

Searching for an Artist

This section pertains to Propcart Pro Webstores and the Propcart Marketplace and NOT the Dashboard.

Our search engine has "typo tolerance". This allows search results that have keyword matches with one or two characters different from the query.

Exact match search results will show up first, and then search results with one typo second, and search results with two typos last.

If you use the search bar to search for an artist name, typo tolerance might cause other artists to be represented in the search results after the artist of interest.

If you want an exact match search, wrap your query in quotes like this:

Exact match artist search"Amy%20Smith"

Alternatively, if you find the artist via the Artists page, you'll also get exact match search results:

Artist Rev Share Agreement

Propcart cannot help you create rev share agreements for your artists.

But you can note the artist's rev share percentage on each artist's form:

Clearance Documents

Propcart cannot help you create clearance documents for your cleared art.

However, you may want to contact Ross Garner, who sells insurance policies to prop houses dealing with clearance concerns.
