Announcing Mobile for the Artist Side of ZAPP
In one of our biggest enhancements to date, we are making zapplication.org mobile responsive! With a planned release in late summer, artists will soon be able to take ZAPP with them on the go. Artists will be able to apply to events, check their application statuses, and even buy booths from their phone or tablet.
We’ve Started Our Artist Spotlight!
ZAPP has begun posting artist spotlights! Our goal is to showcase a diverse range of work on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts as well as future blogs. We encourage artists of all abilities and medium categories to apply!
Interested in being featured? Apply here: https://www.zapplication.org/event-info.php?ID=7580
Connect with us: ZAPP is now on Instagram!
A little late to the party — but we’re now on Instagram! Check us out for Artist Spotlights, ZAPP updates, and more.
From PayPal to Braintree
ZAPP recently switched from using PayPal’s original payment processor to its new system, Braintree. Braintree is the software Uber, Airbnb, Grubhub, Dropbox, and the Honest Company use to manage their online payments, so we’re confident we’re in good hands!
What makes this switch exciting? Artists can now save payment types for quicker checkout! In the future, artists will also be able to pay with a variety of digital wallet payment types, including Venmo and Apple Pay.
What’s New? The Deposit Product Type
ZAPP artists can purchase a deposit product without changing their status. After purchasing this product type, artists will be tagged with the word “DEPOSIT.”
Administrators can use this option when they need artists to pay a certain amount for their booth upfront, and then want them to pay the remainder of the booth cost later. For example, say artists were required to pay 50% of the booth product by July 28, 2019, and then pay the remaining balance by August 30, 2019. In this case, a deposit product would be created for 50% of the cost of the booth, and a booth product would be created for the other 50%.
Creative Conversations: A Juror’s Perspective
We sat down with longtime juror Jennifer Perlow to talk about her experiences in the art world. Perlow has juried more than 15 art shows and recently finished jurying the Des Moines Arts Festival.
