How It Works

ARTRIS is an open marketplace for artists, curators, and collectors

As a member, you can be any or all of the following:

  • Artist Artist to sell artworks       
  • Curator Curator to open online exhibitions
  • Collector Collector to buy artworks

ARTRIS membership and listings are free of charge

  • Join us and become a member for free.
  • Create your own portfolio page and upload images of your artworks for free too.

Have a simple and catchy portfolio URL of your own

  • Your User-ID is used to set your portfolio address and it is desirable to set a memorable one. For example, if you set your User-ID as ‘picasso’, your portfolio address will be automatically set as ‘www.artris.com/picasso’.
  • Note that your User-ID cannot be changed once it has been registered.

Our sales commission is one of the lowest in the market

  • Our sales commission for an original artwork can be as low as ZERO percent of the sale price according to the resolution of the image you upload.
  • - Image resolution greater than 8,000 pixels on the long-side: 0% of the sale price
  • - Image resolution greater than 6,000 pixels on the long-side: 4% of the sale price
  • - Image resolution greater than 4,000 pixels on the long-side: 8% of the sale price

Open online exhibitions for free

  • To promote sales of artworks, any member can open 8-week online exhibitions free of charge, for unlimited times as far as the individual exhibition periods do not overlap one another.
  • For every sale of original artworks made in an exhibition, the curator earns 20% of the sale price (Artists can save the curator’s sales commission if they host exhibitions themselves).

Original artworks are sold by individual artists via ARTRIS (ARTRIS provides an escrow service)

  • When an original artwork is booked for sale, the artist should set the shipping charge within 7 days and the collector can agree or disagree to pay this within another 7 days.
  • If the collector pays the total price (sale price plus shipping charge), (i) the artist will ship the artwork directly to the collector within 7 days, and (ii) ARTRIS will release to the artist an amount equivalent to the total price less fees and any applicable tax after the artwork has been delivered and the 7-day return period has expired.
  • If the collector doesn’t pay the total price, the sale will be cancelled.

Prints are individually made-to-orders and sold by ARTRIS

  • ARTRIS sells print-on-demand artworks in various forms with or without frames.
  • On the sale of a print, ARTRIS pays the license fee to the artist.

7-day money back guarantee

  • If you are not happy with a purchased artwork for any reason, you can return it within 7 days from the date of delivery. If you decided to return your purchase, please consult with us via the Contact Us form (https://www.artris.com/support/contactus). You should not ship out the artwork before ARTRIS advise you to do so. As soon as the artwork has been returned in its original condition, ARTRIS will issue a full refund for the sale price. Please note that ARTRIS does not reimburse outgoing or return shipping charges unless the return is due to a defect in quality.

All payments are sent and received via PayPal in US dollars

  • You need a PayPal account to buy or sell artworks via ARTRIS.

Join ARTRIS

In order to buy your favorite artworks on ARTRIS, join us and become a collector member. Your User-ID is used to set your portfolio address and it is desirable to set a memorable one.

Browse artworks icon

Browse artworks

There are two ways you can browse artworks: (a) online exhibitions where curated artworks are displayed in a gallery-like setting; (b) listings of all artworks. We suggest you browse and explore the exhibitions first, then search the listings of artworks by artist name, upload date, popularity, or price, as you like.

Visit the artwork page icon

Visit the artwork page

Once you have found an artwork you like, click on the image of it to visit the artwork page and look at it in closer detail (‘magnifying glass view’ and ‘view-in-a-room’). To buy an original artwork: click on the ‘ORIGINAL’ tab (if the ‘ORIGINAL’ tab is not activated, the original artwork is unavailable for sale), then click on the ‘ADD TO CART’ button.

Or, if you want to buy a print: click on the ‘PRINTS’ tab (if the ‘PRINTS’ tab is not activated, prints are unavailable for that artwork) and choose options for print size, print base, frame and mat. Once you are done, click on the ‘ADD TO CART’ button.

Check your cart icon

Check your cart

Carefully check the items in your cart and if you want to proceed, click on the ‘CHECKOUT’ button.

Check your order icon

Check your order

Fill in the billing address and the shipping address (You only have to do this for your first buy unless you change your address), then check the sale price, the shipping charge and the total price. For an original artwork, the shipping charge will appear as ‘TBC’ (To Be Confirmed). If you’re happy with your order, click on the ‘ORDER NOW’ button. For a print, on the other hand, the shipping charge is already set and you just need to click on the ‘PAY NOW’ button.

Pay and wait for your order icon

Complete your payment via PayPal

If your order is a print, complete your payment via PayPal. It will usually be shipped in 3 – 5 working days. If your order is an original artwork, we will get back to you with the shipping charge within 7 days which you may agree or disagree to pay (See Introduction).

Keep or Return icon

Returns

You have 7 days from the date of delivery to decide whether to keep or return a purchased artwork. If you decide to return the artwork, you should let us know via our Contact Us form (https://www.artris.com/support/contactus). You should not ship out the artwork before we advise you to do so. If the return is in its original condition, you will be fully refunded for the sale price of the artwork. Please note that ARTRIS does not reimburse outgoing or return shipping charges unless the return is due to a defect in quality.

Upload your artworks and start selling

Register Icon

Join ARTRIS

In order to sell your artworks on ARTRIS, join us and become an artist member. Your User-ID is used to set your portfolio address and it is desirable to set a memorable one. For example, if you set your User-ID as ‘picasso’, your portfolio address will be automatically set as ‘www.artris.com/picasso’. Note that your User-ID cannot be changed once it has been registered.

 Complete your profile Icon

Complete your profile

Sign in and navigate to your portfolio from the member menu. Complete your profile including your name, headshot image, artist statement, and other information. Note that your portfolio information will be disclosed on the ARTRIS website.

Photograph your artworks Icon

Photograph your artworks

Using a decent digital camera and lightings, take high quality photographs of your artworks without any front glass or acrylic sheet. It is better to take a few additional photographs to show certain parts of you artwork in detail or the frame (if included in your sale). If you are not properly equipped to ensure quality of your images of artworks, we strongly recommend you have a professional photographer to take photographs of your artworks. Please note that SMARTPHONE CAMERAS ARE NO GOOD for this kind of work as they have a small built-in lens that is vastly inferior to a proper camera lens.

Each of your images must be: (i) a JPEG file, (ii) at least 4,000 pixels of resolution on the long-side, (iii) less than 50MB in size. Note that our sales commission for an original artwork is determined according to the resolution of the image you upload:
• Image resolution greater than 8,000 pixels on the long-side: 0% of the sale price
• Image resolution greater than 6,000 pixels on the long-side: 4% of the sale price
• Image resolution greater than 4,000 pixels on the long-side: 8% of the sale price Note that you must NOT increase image resolution using any image processing software.

Upload images of your artworks Icon

Upload images of your artworks

Upload images of your original artworks by clicking on the ‘+’ button under the Artworks tab in your portfolio. For each of the uploaded images, you need to: (i) add details including title, keywords, description, category, medium, base, style, subject, year of creation, and dimensions; (ii) decide whether to sell original, prints or both; (iii) decide whether to allow other members to put your artwork in their exhibitions.

Price your artworks Icon

Price your artworks

You need to set a sale price for each of your original artworks. Appropriate pricing is critical to selling your artworks and therefore it is very important to adopt consistent, reasonable pricing principles. As a rough guide, take into account: (i) total number of hours you spent on the artwork, (ii) your hourly wage, and (iii) material costs.

In order to sell prints of your artworks, you also need to set a license fee for each print size of your artworks. To set a reasonable license fee, consider the sale price of the original artwork (higher sale price, higher license fee) and the size of prints (larger print size, higher license fee).

Promote sales Icon

Promote sales

Promote sales by hosting online exhibitions to expose your artworks to numerous members and visitors of ARTRIS from all over the world. Collectors are much more likely to see your artworks this way than if they were only in the listings. Another tip to maximize exposure is to share links of your portfolio, online exhibitions, and recently uploaded artworks on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Package and ship your original artwork Icon

Package and ship your original artwork

When one of your original artworks is sold, there are a few things you need to do:
(i) Prepare the Certificate of Authenticity of your artwork and include it in the package,
(ii) Package your artwork sensibly using corner protectors, bubble wrap, packing tape, thick foam boards, and a sturdy cardboard box,
(iii) Measure the dimensions (width, height and depth) and the weight of the package,
(iv) Consult with an international shipper and get a shipping quote for your package (Please note that the shipping quote should represent a competitive price for all shipping and insurance fees),
(v) Estimate your handling charge considering the packaging costs,
(vi) Calculate the shipping charge by adding the shipping quote and the handling charge (This total is the amount you would like to charge the collector for shipping and handling),
(vii) By clicking on the link we will send you, enter the shipping size, weight and the shipping charge within 7 days from the order date,
(viii) Ship your artwork to the collector when we advise you to do so.

Collect your payment Icon

Receive the payment

If one of your original artworks is sold, ARTRIS will credit your PayPal account with an amount equivalent to the total price (the sale price plus the shipping charge) less PayPal payment processing fee (4.4% of the total price plus $0.30 USD), ARTRIS sales commission (0% - 8% of the sale price), Curator’s sales commission (20% of the sale price, if the sale was made in an exhibition), and any applicable tax.

If a print of your artwork is sold, ARTRIS will credit your PayPal account with an amount equivalent to the license fee you had set for the artwork less any applicable tax.

The sales credit will be released after the sold artwork has been delivered to the collector and the 7-day return period has expired.

Pay tax Icon

Pay tax

For your income from sales of original artworks, consult with the appropriate taxing authority in your country and pay any applicable tax. For your income from sales of prints, if you provide a complete Tax Form No. 29-12 (on your Account page), a reduced tax rate under the relevant tax treaty between South Korea and your country may be applied to your license fee income. Otherwise, ARTRIS may withhold at the maximum Tax Rate.
