You retain all ownership rights to your work
If you created it, you own it! That's only right! We are merely a forum and marketplace to allow you to display your works and sell them. We do not broker the digital reproduction rights to anyone and no one will have access to your high-res images as they are all kept offline and only used for production when a purchase is made. If you choose to cancel your membership, all your images will be removed from our website to safeguard your rights.

What products will my Artwork be made available as?
Your artwork will be made available for sale for our entire line of products.
Set how much you would like to earn for your works
You have the freedom to set your own commision. Our flexible and easy to understand pricing structure allows you to set your markups base on the Base Price of a product. As a reference, a 12 x 12 inch Art Print produced on Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper has a Base Price of US$11. A 20 x 20 inch Stretched Canvas Print has a Base Price of US$106.80.
What is "Base Price"?
The Base price of a product includes all material and labour cost of printing and manufacturing a product plus a profit for our site. It also includes a 5% administrative cost which is borne only by the buyer, not the seller.
So what are the cost to me for selling through Artify?
If you would like to group your artwork into your own different galleries, you can easily do so by clicking on "Galleries". This allows you to curate your own artwork and set up a virtual gallery with a link to allow you to send to people whom you would like to showcase your work to.
How does promotions affect my commissions?
In order for us to market your Artworks effectively, we may use discount codes as a form of marketing tool to the visitors of our site and you are deemed to have agreed to participate in our marketing efforts as indicated in our User Agreement. The final profit that you make, therefore, may be slightly lesser than what you have indicated as they are subjected to deductions based on the discount codes used by buyers.
The Base price of a Framed Print is $150. You've indicated your Markup for the range of the Base Price of Merchandise "Between $101 - $200" to be $20.
The retail price = (Base Price + Markup) = ($150 + $20) = $170.
If no discount code was used by a buyer, your profit will be $20.
If a discount code of a 10% discount was used, Your profit = (Your Mark up – 10% of your Markup) = ( $20 - $2)= $18
How do I edit my Markups?
Every piece of your Artwork has a Markup tied to it which you would have set when you upload them to the site for the first time. If you need to make changes to them, simply go to your "Artwork Library", and select the "Edit Artwork" link on the artwork that you want to edit.
