In a few days Pixiv is launching BOOTH, a digital/physical distribution and sales system fully integrated with their already wildly popular and successful online artist network.
What does BOOTH do?
BOOTH lets artists sell their work, both physical and digital, via a website linked to their Pixiv account. This means that artists who currently have a Pixiv account can sell their work to fans around the world with virtually no overhead.
What does this mean for me if I have a Pixiv account?
You can create a BOOTH “shop” and sell your artwork, comics, illustration collections, music, etc. to people all over the world. It is absolutely free to use and you can set your own prices, including prices as low as 0 yen (free).
BOOTH is also fully integrated into the Pixiv website and mobile ap, allowing you to link works in your gallery to relevant products in your BOOTH store; making it easy to direct people who browse your gallery to a related item that they might be interested in (such as a poster, print, or collection featuring the image)
What does this mean if I DON’T have a Pixiv account?
It means you can directly support your favorite artists and get cool stuff in return!
Can’t fly to Japan for Comiket this month? Just browse your favorite doujin artist’s BOOTH online and pick up a copy of their latest comic there!
Find an artist you like and want to know when they add new items to their BOOTH? You can do that too! Any creators you follow can send you notifications when they update their booth so you can grab their latest edition as soon as it hits the market!
An effortless and efficient way to directly support the creators you love, BOOTH is launching this December 19th at https://booth.pm/
