Artists Obligations: Upon a listing being sold, the Artist is then responsible for sending the artwork to the Purchaser. Art Selectors advise Purchasers that the artwork they purchase will be fulfilled within 2 working days.

The Artist is solely responsible for meeting this deadline and will receive warnings and possible account termination by Art Selectors if fulfilment deadlines are repeatedly missed. The Artists is responsible for the sale delivery of the Artwork to the Purchaser. This includes, but it not limited to, ensuring the Artwork is packaged carefully for sale transit. Art Selectors recommends the use of bubble wrap, thick cardboard, strong packing tape, writing the word “fragile” on the packaging, and so on.

The Artist is also responsible for the cost of shipping. Art Selectors recommend adding $50-$100 to the price of your Artwork to account for this cost. Artists must provide a tracking number to the Purchaser and also ensure the Artwork is insured for the value of the purchase. In an event of damage occurring during transit, Art Selectors will withhold funds being deposited to the Artist until the matter is resolved.

The payout from the insurance will be made directly to the Artist.  The damaged Artwork will be required to be returned to the Artist by the Purchaser, which Art Selectors will pay for. Art Selectors will not insure the return of damaged items to the Artist. Art Selectors deem this process as fair to both Purchaser and Artist. 

Any disputes or disagreements to the above policy will be considered by Art Selectors on a case by case basis, for example (but not limited to), if an agreement is made between the Purchaser and the Artist.
