Commission on All Sales Through Artland

For all successfully completed purchases, Artland will charge a 10% commission fee.


"Buy Now," "Make Offer" and "Contact Gallery" Options

Galleries can sell artworks via Artland by either letting the buyer purchase a work directly via the "Buy Now" button, make an offer via the "Make Offer" button, or by letting the buyer make contact with the seller via the "Contact Gallery" button.


Important Information

As a seller, please always remember to inform the buyers about availability, transport cost, VAT and any possible extra costs. Please send them the final invoice separately.

Artland can provide assistance at any moment, in order to secure the success of this process.

All client information will be shared with galleries once a sales inquiry is sent through, in order to increase the pool of qualified and active buyers.

Artland will charge 10% commission for all successfully completed purchases, regardless whether it was achieved via the "Buy Now", "Make Offer" or "Contact Gallery" option. By signing up to Artland's Direct Payment Processing system, you do not need to worry about any extra transaction fees, as the 10% commission will cover these costs.


Selling Process

  1. For all sales requests, your gallery receives an email through [email protected] with the buyer information (name, email address and, if provided, phone number) and the information about the artwork that has been inquired about.
  2. If you have set up direct payments via Stripe, the buyer can complete the transaction by simply providing their credit card information. For instructions on setting up Stripe through Artland, check the article Payment System via Stripe.
  3. If you have not set up Stripe, you can get in contact directly with the buyer and agree on the preferred payment method by using the contact information provided in the email.

Buy Now

The "Buy Now" option is made to help you encourage and streamline online sales. If you select "Fixed Price" on the "Pricing and Availability" section while editing an artwork, the work will automatically be displayed with a "Buy Now" button.

This is the best solution, and the perfect choice for collectors who want to buy art quickly and without hurdles. By using the "Buy Now" feature for your artworks, a successful purchase becomes two to six times more likely than for similar works with hidden prices.

Here, the process is the following:

  1. A potential buyer makes an offer
  2. An automatically generated email is sent to the gallery with the request through [email protected].
  3. The Gallery is responsible for responding to the inquiry by either accepting or rejecting the offer.


Make offer

The "Make Offer" option is created to help you start a dialogue with a prospective buyer. It is common to negotiate the price of an artwork, especially if the work is over $1,000. We created the "Make Offer" option to empower both buyers and galleries with the best online replication of a real life art-buying experience, in which negotiation is common practice. In this process, the prospective buyer will be able to make an offer at an amount less than the listed retail price. The gallery can reject the offer, accept the offer, or make a counter offer.

Here, the process is the following:

  1. A potential buyer makes an offer
  2. An automatically generated email is sent to the gallery with the request through [email protected].
  3. The Gallery is responsible for responding to the inquiry by either negotiating, rejecting or accepting the offer.



Contact Gallery

The Contact Gallery option is geared towards galleries looking for price confidentiality. Even though collectors prefer visible prices, galleries may still have reasons for not showing them publicly. This will, however, increase the amount of speculative requests that may be less serious than the Buy Now and Make Offer options.

Here, the process is the following:

  1. A potential buyer requests more information about an artwork
  2. An automatically generated email is sent to the gallery with the request through [email protected].
  3. The Gallery is responsible for responding to the inquiry with the requested information.
