Scope of Sales

After opening an Artist account on the Sites, Artworks are made available for sale by Member Artists or others on the WebSite. Artworks may also be made available for sale on or through other websites operated by the owner of the WebSites, the websites of our marketing partners or other sales channels we reasonably determine to use in the future.

Non-Exclusivity and Pricing

You may market your artwork through other channels simultaneously with marketing through the WebSites provided that this does not affect your ability to deliver the artwork to the customer within the specified time. You also agree not to offer your artwork at a price lower than the price which you are offering it through the WebSites and that if the Artwork is sold through another channel you will remove it from sale at the WebSites within 2 days. This price must be inclusive of VAT (if applicable) and your delivery and insurance costs to anywhere in the UK or Ireland.

You agree to indicate clearly on your Artist gallery whether or not any original Artwork is for sale or not and, if it is, the price of the original Artwork. Any change of status of availability must be updated within 48 hours of such change in status. If we receive complaints from users who attempt to buy original Artwork listed as being available for sale when it is not, your membership in the WebSites may be subject to termination.


After opening a Collector account on the WebSitea, Collectors may be required to give detailed profiles, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, contact information, and more.  All of this information is not disclosed on the WebSites unless to seller member when a sale is made of a Member Artist's work. The Websites then facilitates the transaction but forms NO PART of the legal contract between the buyer Collector and the seller Artist although it may take a fee for facilitating such a transaction.

Sales of Artwork

The WebSites facilitates the sale of Artist's and others art through an Escrow System. When a buyer offers to purchase an Artwork through the Websites it is a condition that they must only use the WebSites designated "Escrow" system of payment (currently with Transpact). This Escrow service is a licensed and regulated company that collects, holds, and sends a buyer's money to a seller according to instructions agreed on by both of them. Both parties agree the standard terms which may include but not be limited to: fee to escrow service; conditions of accepting the Artwork; length of inspection period; payment of escrow fees and returns.

Payment is sent by the buyer to the Escrow service who confirms that it has cleared. The seller sends the buyer the Artwork by the WebSites agreed traceable delivery method currently Parcel2go.com which may include insurance cover and may provide the escrow company with a tracking number.

If the item is not accepted, the buyer must return the item to the seller, paying the return delivery cost and the escrow fee. Payment, minus the escrow fees, is then returned to the buyer.
If the the buyer accepts and confirms receipt of the artwork (or the inspection period runs out) the funds are paid to the seller normally within seven business days after deducting any fees payable to the WebSites.

It is the essence of this Agreement that the WebSites acts solely as a facilitator between collectors or dealers and artists allowing those two parties the opportunity of contracting with each other for the purpose of buying and selling Artworks. In this process the WebSites form no part whatsoever of such a contract but may take a fee for facilitating the process.
