Artist Q&A

Why sell on Binned Art?

We stand behind your artwork, promoting each piece as if it were our own. Driven by the mission to make great art accessible to all, we roll up our sleeves to sell works quickly so that our artists can make a living from their art, hassle-free. If you share this vision, we’re a match.


What type of art can I submit?

We specialize in painting and drawing exclusively. Please don't submit any sculpture, print or photography works.


How do I submit an artwork?

Please use this form to submit a high-quality photograph of your work, including medium details, size and your asking price. We carefully review each submission and offer feedback, typically within a few working days. To stay in line with the ethos of our gallery, please note a few rules of thumb:

• Should you decide not to reveal your identity, we highly recommend signing your work using a pseudonym. We won't require the disclosure of your real identity at any point.

• Based on the information that you provide us with — the artwork location and dimensions — we will show customers an estimated worldwide delivery cost. Since the artwork will be shipped directly to the customer, you, the artist, must cover this cost at the point of shipment. Once the artwork is delivered, you will be reimbursed this shipping cost together with the payment for the artwork, minus our commission.

• Please refer to the pricing guidelines below when you set your asking price.

My artwork was sold — what's next?

• You’ll receive an email informing you of the sale. You’ll also receive information regarding the next steps you’ll need to take in order to successfully deliver the artwork to the buyer. The buyer will cover the shipping cost, while you, the artist, will be responsible for packaging your artwork for shipment, as well as for the packaging costs.

• We allow for up to 3 working days for artists to package and prepare their works for shipment. You will be informed about our packaging guidelines once the sale is confirmed.

• Fill in and print the Certificate of Authenticity for your work. We will provide you with an easy-to-use template once your work is sold.

• Next, you must ship the artwork to the buyer’s address. We will provide you with all the details about the final destination.

• Finally, once the delivery is confirmed, you will receive the payment.


What are my options for getting paid?

Once the customers confirms receiving the artwork in good condition, we will send your payment via IBAN/SWIFT bank transfer, Revolut or Bitcoin.


How is my personal information stored?

We'll reach out to you to collect pay-out information once one of your artwork sells. Your personal information will be stored offline and will be immediately deleted once your funds have been transferred. It will never, ever, be shared with anyone because we don't roll like that. Read our privacy policy here.
