Selling artwork

We believe that artists should have a choice about how their artwork is sold through
their gallery and have the option of dealing directly with the buyer if they wish.

There are three options for selling art on galleries-online:

1. Deal directly with the buyer (commission free)

  • Visitors can contact you directly by completing the Make an Enquiry form on the image page.
  • You then deal directly with the enquiry without our involvement. We do not charge commission
    for this method of selling artwork and we hold no responsibility for the transactions.

To select this choice:

  1. Click on My Images in the left menu, scroll down and click on My Image Folder.
  2. Click on the edit icon Edit image icon underneath the image, click on Make available for sale from your gallery.
  3. Choose the Deal directly with the buyer by email option.

2. Sell work through your PayPal account (commission free)

  • Visitors can buy your artwork using a shopping cart facility integrated with your PayPal account.
  • Setting up a PayPal account is free and simple and provides you and the buyer
    with a secure environment for completing the sale.

  2. Click on My Images in the left menu, scroll down and click on My Image Folder.

  5. Please note: Delivery options must also be set for the Buy now button to appear for the artwork.

3. Allow galleries-online to handle the sale (15% commission)

  • We understand that many artists and buyers would feel more comfortable with a third party facilitating
    the sale of artwork. We can provide this service for 15% commission of the price of the artwork.

The process for selling artwork in this option is as follows:

  1. Buyer makes a payment for your artwork to galleries-online via the Buy now link on the image page.
  2. Artist sends the artwork to the buyer (the artist is responsible for the cost of postage and insurance).
  3. Once received, the buyer has a ten day approval period.
  4. If the buyer is happy with the artwork the money is released by galleries-online to the artist minus
    commission of 15% of the agreed price of the artwork.
  5. If the buyer decides that they do not wish to keep the artwork, they are responsible for the costs of
    returning the item to the artist (including insurance).
  6. Once the artist has received the returned artwork, galleries-online provides a full refund to the
    buyer (this does not include the cost of returning the artwork back to the artist).

To select this choice:
