Sellers may be open to negotiating prices for works with a “Contact Gallery” or “Make Offer” button. Keep in mind that galleries can’t always give discounts. If you’re suggesting a price, we find that offers within 20% of the listed price have the best chance of being accepted.
If you see a “Contact Gallery” button on the artwork page, click it to send a message to the gallery with your budget or an offered price.
If you see a “Contact Gallery” button, and the work is available for secure checkout via Make Offer, you’ll also see the option to make an offer on the artwork page and in your conversations. To do this, click the “Make Offer” button and enter your suggested price. You’ll be prompted to submit your offer to the gallery, followed by a checkout flow that asks for your payment and shipping details.
If you see the “Make Offer” button, click it and enter your suggested price. You can also include a note to contextualize your interest or add a personal touch. Please note that the amount you enter does not include taxes or shipping fees, and all offers are binding.
