How This Works: Artists as Sellers
There are so many wonderful artists, photographers and sculptors out there that we decided to provide a venue for them. Here’s how it works for the artists. Listing your work with us is free and there are no maximum number of pieces you can list. When your work sells, we’ll charge you 25% commission on the sale price, about half of what other galleries normally charges. Contact us to set you up and we’ll send you a contract authorizing us to act as your broker in the sale of your artwork. It also commits you to guaranteeing the quality of your packaging when you ship your piece and insuring it for the purchased value – not higher and not lower. When we have your signed contract, we’ll ask you to provide a high quality image of the piece you want to sell, along with your asking price and the minimum price you will consider. We’ll displace the image and the asking price. There will be no additional listing fees; the piece you want to sell will remain on our site until it sells or you change your mind about selling. When someone makes an offer and it meets your minimum, we’ll advise you of the offer. It’s up to you to accept it, refuse it, or counter with a lower asking price. We’ll act as your broker in the negotiation until you accept an offer or one of you walks away. When you accept an offer, we’ll invoice the buyer for the accepted amount plus 15% for shipping within the continential US. If the purchaser is outside the continental US, we’ll determine a custom shipping cost. When the buyer’s payment has cleared, we’ll provide you with the shipping address. You must ship to the standards agreed in our contract. When you’ve shipped the artwork, you must provide us with proof of shipment and insurance which we can provide to the buyer. Once we have your proofs, we will release payment to you minus any commission owed to us.
To purchase or make an offer for any work throughout the site, email email@example.com. Be sure to include the artist's name and artwork's name.
