We charge a flat rate on the sale price of your artwork, which includes our commission and GST (excluding shipping). There are no costs to you other than this.

Can artists outside of Pakistan sell their work?

No, unfortunately artists based outside of Pakistan cannot sell their work on the platform. But they are more than welcome to join as a member and use all other features of the site.

Can I sell my art at other places at the same time?

Yes, you can offer your art for sale anywhere else at the same time, provided it is not sold at a lower price. Please update the status of the work on Gallery 6 if it becomes unavailable or is sold elsewhere to avoid dissatisfying buyers.

Which currency should I price my artwork in?

Please list all your artwork in US Dollars. This is the currency that is supported by our payments processor. Example for calculating the  price: Painting price is Rs. 50,000. The dollar INTERBANK rate is $1= Rs. 220 (note – use interbank rate on the posting date and NOT market rate). Hence the painting price in dollars will be Rs.50000 divided by Rs. 220 = $227. Website charges 10%, so increase this price by dividing $227 by 0.9. The resulting price will be $252. Post this price as your painting price.

Should I be selective about the artwork I upload?

Yes, you should only upload your strongest work to increase the overall strength of your portfolio.
