How to buy


Buying objects at the Artbidy auction house is extremely simple and secure. We advise and help our clients at every stage of purchase. 

Participation in auctions requires registration to ensure their proper conduct. Registration is free, and the personal data that is provided in its process is secret and used by us only to complete the purchase transaction. 

In addition to auctioning, we also sell objects in post-auction mode and in the gallery offer mode. Inquiries about the objects in the gallery offer do not require registration.

All objects in our offer are verified before sale by a qualified Admission Department.

The buyer has the right to return the work within 14 days of receipt.

The purchase commission is 18%. 

Our offer is available in 2 languages and 5 currencies. It can be viewed on all internet-enabled devices anywhere in the world.

Payment


After the purchase of the object, the Buyer is obliged to pay the amount consisting of the price of the purchased object and (additionally) the auction house commission of 18%. The amount must be paid to Artbidy's bank account within 3 business days from the date of purchase of the object. After the money is credited to the account, Artbidy begins the finalization of the transaction.

Artbidy watches over the payment process, while securing both the Buyer's and Seller's interests. The buyer has the option of returning the object within 14 days, so the auction house settles with the seller only after the buyer confirms that the object meets his expectations. On the other hand, if the Buyer wants to return the object, he will receive a refund (full amount and commission) only when the object is returned to the auction house unchanged.

Delivery


The Seller is obliged to deliver the work to the auction house within 3 business days from the moment Artbidy confirms the payment by the Buyer. The cost of delivery to the auction house is covered by the Seller. The seller is responsible for choosing the right method of delivery and for any insurance. Artbidy helps in this regard.

The auction house delivers the object to the Buyer at its own expense and risk within 7 business days of the payment date at the latest.

The Buyer does not bear the costs associated with the delivery of the purchased object at any stage.

Return


The Buyer may return a work purchased through Artbidy within 14 days of receiving it. The buyer is obliged to return the work unchanged. The delivery costs of the returned work are covered by the Buyer.

Refunds paid for the object and commission are made within 7 business days of receiving the returned work.
