Purchase safety

When you choose to buy art online you will want to know how to recognize trustworthy dealers. Not many things can go wrong when you buy art online, but just to be on the safe side, there are a few precautions you can take:

Always Pay with a Credit Card

Credit card is the safest way to pay on the net. A reliable site will have an option of paying with credit.

Use a Confidential Form

Give your credit number only on a confidential form. Providing of a confidential form is an important indication of a reliable site

Choose a Reliable Site

Make sure the site you are buying art from is credible. Good signs for a credible site are when the site is well known and appears in many search engines, when it is regularly updated, when it provides many details about itself, and when it exists for a relatively long time. You can always consult our directory of sites to purchase art online. Theses sites were checked and found safe for buying art online.

Make Sure the Piece is Original

Authenticity is as easy to check in buying art online than in buying otherwise. Authentic artworks are usually signed and numbered by the artists. In cases signing the actual work is impossible, ask for a signed artist authenticity statement. The statement may include, besides the signature of the artist, the date of creation and the title of the piece, its dimensions, and any other detail you wish to include. In buying art online, like in other ways of buying, this statement may not be available if the artist is deceased, and in other rare cases. In such cases you can ask for a document signed by an independent expert that can insure the originality of the artwork you intend to buy.
