Hoe het begint

We make it easy to sell your work to a community of art lovers and collectors. When you sell an artwork, you will receive % of all profits. BEP-art handles the shipping logistics, and collectors pay for the cost of shipping, so you only have to worry about covering the costs of packaging materials. We offer secure payments by check, wire transfer or PayPal. Our support specialists ensure our artists and collectors are financially protected on every sale. Get handpicked by our curators for recommendation to a wide range of clients, from designers to architects to emerging and seasoned collectors.

There is no limit to the number of artworks you can upload. We invite you to post and sell as many of your artworks as you’d like! Just so long as your image file size is 1500W X 1200W pixels or larger, and in the color format of RGB, your file will be accepted to upload.

1.   You’ll receive an email informing you of the sale. You’ll also receive information regarding the next steps you’ll need to take in order for us to successfully deliver the artwork to the collector. These steps include:

  • Scheduling a date and time for our courier to pick up your sold artwork. (Courier pick up should occur within 2 – 3 days of when the collector purchased the work.)

NOTE: It’s very important that you immediately schedule a courier pick up date and time after being notified that your artwork has sold.

2.  If 48 hours pass and you haven’t scheduled a pick up date, you’ll receive a phone call and email our Artist Team.

3.  Within two days before your pickup date, you’ll receive an email from us to inform you that your shipping documents are now available to print. Be on the look out for our emails, in some cases, you may receive your shipping label via email from our Artist Support Team.

4.  A courier service will arrive on the date you requested to collect your package and the shipping documents. Please make sure to hand all labels and shipping documents over to the courier.

Additional information regarding artwork packaging, pick up, and delivery:

  • All original artworks are shipped to the collector directly from the artist’s location.
  • Shipping costs are paid for by the collector at the time the artwork is purchased.
  • You, the artist, will be responsible for packaging your artwork for shipment, as well as for all packaging costs.
  • You must include a Certificate of Authenticity inside the package with your artwork. BEP-art will provide you the template to use. Continue reading below for more information on that.

5. Next, your artwork will be picked up and delivered to the collector. Please note that the transit time can vary depending on the location of your customer. You’ll see your shipment’s tracking number on the label that is provided to you. You can follow along using that tracking number on the carrier’s website directly (i.e. FedEx, DHL, UPS, etc.)

It’s important to note that if shipping internationally, there may be custom delays. This is not unusual and should not cause you any panic.

Betalingen

BEP-art handles the shipping logistics, and collectors pay for the cost of shipping, so you only have to worry about covering the costs of packaging materials. We offer secure payments using a third party software as our Payout Manager. For more information on all things pertaining to how our payments for the artists work, please continue reading below.

 

PAYOUT METHODS

Once you’ve set up your account within Hyperwallet, you’ll be prompted to set up your transfer method. During this process, you’ll establish your currency and your country of transfer request. Once you’ve indicated that, your payment options will appear (Bank Wire, ACH, Check, PayPal). Note that if your bank has an ACH option, wire transfers will not be available.

 

COMMISSION

If you sell an original work, BEP-art will receive a  commission on the final sale price. If a promotional discount code is offered, the discount will be deducted from the price of the artwork and the  commission split will then be calculated. (See below for more information on Promotional Discounts)

For open edition prints, artists are entitled to % of the profit on each sale. Profit is calculated from the final sale price minus the costs of production.

If you sell a Limited Edition Print through Limited by BEP-art, artists are entitled to % of the profit on each sale.  

ABOUT PROMOTIONAL DISCOUNTS

If a discount has been applied to your sale, it’s because the collector redeemed a special promotional discount while purchasing your work. On occasion, we offer promotional discounts as an incentive for new and returning collectors to explore the constantly changing selection of artwork on our site. We find that offering promotions from time to time allows artists to gain the attention of collectors previously unaware of their work and a better chance to make future sales. 

If you sell an original work, BEP-art will receive a % commission on the final sale price. If a promotional discount code is offered, the discount will be deducted from the price of the artwork and the usual split will then be calculated. 

It is worth remembering that BEP-art’s commission is %, whereas the gallery standard is %. This means that very often (even with a discount) you will be earning more through your sales with BEP-art than if you were to sell through another gallery that takes % commission.

It is also important to note that during your initial sign up, you agreed to this condition (included in our official statement of terms and conditions).

BEP-art reserves the right to promote and market Original Works of Art and/or Digital Works through the use of sales and/or discounts. The sale or discount amount will apply to the listing price of Original Works of Art and/or Printed Works relating to the Digital Works. After the discount code is deducted from the sales price, our usual commission of % will be applied.
