All selling artists in the ArtSlant SalesRoom receive timely payments for works sold, as well as detailed invoices on each sale.
ArtSlant selling artists are paid either by Paypal Account (US and international) or by Check (US residents only). No wire transfers or other payment methods are available.
Upon completing the registration to become a selling artist, each artist provides information on their preferred method of payment.
US Residents: To be paid by check, artist must provide a Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax ID number (EIN) for IRS reporting purposes.
Payment for Work
Each artist sets their own pricing for originals and prints (referred to as "Artist Price"). Prices on prints can vary according to the print size. Upon sale of your work, ArtSlant will send you the payment according to the Artist Price you have listed for the sold work.
Calculating Final Price on ArtSlant
ArtSlant adds a 25% buyer's fee to all prices; the total price will appear on the website.
To calculate the total list price that will appear on the website based on the artist asking price,=, simply take the artist asking price and add 25%.
To calculate the artist price from a total list price, then deduct 20% from the total list price.
As an example;
If you want to achieve a list price of $1000 for a work, subtract 20% from that price and you get $800; therefore, the artist asking price should be $800. A 25% markup applied to the artist price of $800 gets you to 1.25 x 800 = 1000.
In summary, a 25% markup over the artist price is the same as a 20% discount from list price.
Seeing the List Price on ArtSlant
When you check the list prices to the public for your works, you must log out of your ArtSlant account first so that your artist discount will not show.
If you check your own prices while you are logged in, the software carefully notes that you are the artist who created these works, and shows you the price you would pay if you bought them yourself with the artist's 10% discount on all printing and framing services.
Similarly, if you were to have a buyer use your computer to buy one of your works, you must log yourself out first, so they see, and they pay, the full list price for your works.
Timing of Payments
Buyers of both Original works and Digital Edition prints must provide payment information upon purchase. The buyer’s funds are held by ArtSlant until notification of receipt of shipment and acceptance has been received, or until the 30-day guarantee period has elapsed. Upon either of these markers, the artist’s royalty is paid through Paypal or by check (check for US residents only) to the artist. The artist receives a statement covering the sale.
Note: In the event the artist has been paid for a work and a return follows for approved reasons, ArtSlant will deduct the refund amount from artist’s account.
30-Day Money Back Guarantee
As a service to our buyers, all Digital Edition sales shipped to buyers in the USA come with a 30-day Money Back Guarantee. Buyer may return work for any reason during the guarantee period and receive a full refund of the cost of the print. Shipping costs will be covered in the event of damage or loss of work.
Many artists have questions about website security with regards to private information such as social security numbers, contact information and personal addresses, and bank/financing information.
Here are our policies and procedures, which ensure that ArtSlant is a safe and state of the art e-commerce platform.
The ArtSlant website, and all commerce within our site, uses an industry-standard secure connection called HTTPS (instead of regular HTTP). This provides an encrypted communication between your computer and our server with regard to all financial information. In addition, the user's password protected login provides a secondary security level to all personal information.
Social Security Number
In our SalesRoom, each artist is asked to provide their social security number (for US residents only). Artists do not need to provide this information until a sale is made. At that time, this information must be provided so that ArtSlant can pay the artist accordingly and report the payment to the government as required by law.
With respect to request for phone numbers on the ArtSlant website, on the personal profile page an artist or other professional may list their phone number and display it publically. It is suggested that only business phone numbers be displayed in this way, not personal numbers. To remove a phone number from your personal profile, go into the "edit" and "expand" links in your Change box and remove your numbers that you have added.
Phone & Email for Selling Artists
In the SalesRoom, we ask each artist to provide their contact information including their phone number. This is not displayed publicly. Contact information on a selling artist account is only accessible to the owner and the ArtSlant team. It is very helpful to have this information should we need to get into quick contact with an artist about a purchase of their work. Our Art Consultants often need to discuss pricing, availability, other works, studio visits, etc. with selling artists when buyers are interested and having phone numbers allows us to quickly access information for a sale. We do not require this information but it does help to increase our ability to sell for you.
