Are Buyer/Seller transactions done through the site?
No, any negotiation and correspondence between the Artist/Artisan/Photographer and potential Buyer is done in private using the Contact Form on the Artist’s Gallery Page.
So, if a person wishes to buy from you it’s up to you how payment & delivery is made. We take no part other than giving you the facility to be contacted by any interested party.
This means you (the subscriber) do not have to inflate your prices to cover commission costs.
As you know, many bricks & mortar galleries require 50% commission, which is understandable as they have extremely high operating costs.
Some Art Society exhibitions will charge you 25% commission plus an entrance fee.
Many online galleries will charge you at least 25% commission which again means you need to up your regular asking price.
We only charge £4.50 a month subscription however, this covers not 1 but 20 images! Added to the fact you will also get promoted on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter social media channels means it’s a great opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have an existing online presence to get ‘out there’!
So, when you look at it this way, we think it’s a pretty good deal ! 😎
