What does it cost to sell with Artsy?
We offer no upfront fees. When the artwork sells, we charge a nominal seller’s commission as a percentage of the sale price. The commission is determined based on the total value of works you sell with us. You won’t be asked to cover any additional costs, such as shipping, insurance, or photography.
What happens once I submit an artwork?
Based on our proprietary market data, we will let you know within 48 hours whether your artwork has sufficient demand within the secondary market. If so, your work will be approved. Once approved, you will receive an offer from Artsy to include your work in an upcoming online auction. The offer will have an estimated artwork range and auction details. If you are interested in selling your work based on the offer, you can accept it or ask further questions to our specialists, who will guide you through the process.
How is selling with Artsy different from consigning with a traditional auction house?
Unlike a consignment with a traditional auction house, Artsy does not require any upfront costs of shipping, insurance, or marketing. This means no upfront fees for you. This also allows you to sell your work in an online auction faster, as we hold multiple auctions a month. In case your work doesn’t find a buyer right away, the auction results won’t be published and the work won’t get “burned.”
How long does it take to sell art with Artsy?
We hold multiple themed auctions per month, which means that your artwork can be sold within 2–6 weeks.
I am an artist. Can I sell my art with Artsy?
Based on the collector demand on our Artsy’s marketplace, we are only able to accommodate works by artists with established demand and a resale market consistent with our partners’ current interests. As such, we do not accept submissions from artists selling their own work.
Can I edit my submission?
