- Price and Availability
If your artwork is for sale, please select the price information among "Fixed price", "Price Interval" and "Ask for price". The first two options will activate the "Buy Now" and "Make Offer" feature, while the third one will show to the buyer only "Contact Gallery" button.
To know more about the three options, please check the article about The different ways you can sell art on Artland.
Remember that "Ask for price" means that the price will not be shown to the public, but you need to add it. If you add "0" as the price, the artwork will not be shown in our "Works for Sale" tab. If you type a number, the work will be shown in that price range, even if the price is not visible. So, for example: if you type "10", the artwork will be shown as in the lowest price range. This could lead buyers to inquire for the work and then find out that they cannot afford it. Therefore, we encourage you to add the most precise price possible. Again, if you select "Ask for Price", it will not be shown.
Note that when an artwork is sold through the platform system, it will automatically be marked as "Sold". For more information about this option, read the article Mark Artworks as Sold.
