FAQ – SalesRoom: How Do I Sell Original Artwork?
The ArtSlant SalesRoom allows artists to offer original works for sale. Artists must have copyright and ownership rights in order to sell original work through The SalesRoom.
Pricing on Originals
All works being offered for sale as an original must be priced. Any work that is not priced, or that the artist only wants to sell directly from their studio, will not be accepted into the SalesRoom.
Artists determine their asking price and then ArtSlant adds a 25% buyer's fee to that price on original sales in which ArtSlant is directly involved. The total is listed on the ArtSlant website.
Packing, shipping, insurance and other costs for transporting work are negotiated at the time of sale.
Shipping of Originals
Each selling artist should investigate the best methods for packing and shipping their original work. ArtSlant does not handle this for you.
For shipments in the USA, ArtSlant uses UPS, DHL and other established art shippers (depending on size of work). Shipping costs are based on dimensions and weight of packed art work, so knowing in advance how to pack your work and what the dimensions and weight are will advance a potential sale quickly.
Shipments of original works internationally is reasonably complicated and expensive, and we depend upon the artist to be able to handle the Export and Import documentation and regulations, pack their own work professionally or have a packer that they use, have professional shippers with whom they work on international shipments, and most importantly, be able to provide quick quotes on approximate costs to our buyers.
Buyers need to know shipping costs and timing before they can make a decision to purchase. Selling artists are responsible for investigating shipping details.
ArtSlant will assist where we can with international shipping but the primary responsibility for this belongs to the selling artist.
