How does shipping work
If your interested in finding out an art piece is shippable to yourself you will first have to look on the artworks description for shipping information, if there is none or is not clear its best to contact the artist through Artloca to workout shipping and the costs involved.
We accept many forms of payment, these include:
Before purchasing artwork from a seller check their reviews and shop policies, if available. If you have any questions or concerns, send a message to the seller.
Transactions with sellers must be finalised within Artloca, so that we can assist you with payment verification and return options should the need arise.
Should the transaction take place outside of Artloca, then we are unable to offer any assistance.
Any custom artworks created via communication with a seller is done at your own risk.
