How much does it cost to sell on Artfinder?

It is 100% free to sign up and display your artworks on Artfinder!

Commission

We deduct a 33% or 40% commission * every time an artwork is purchased through the site. This covers the cost of running the site, free of charge returns, marketing. In fact, we reinvest all of the commission we earn back into artist promotion––amongst others online and offline advertising.

Commission is only charged on the retail value of the artwork sold––that is the total retail value of the item as set by you. We do not charge commission on shipping.

The percentage we charge depends on the Seller Plan you choose once you are accepted. Please see a breakdown of our Seller Plans here: What are the different Seller Plan subscriptions?

You are not required to choose a Seller Plan or pay anything until you are approved and make your profile public.

Our Commission and Fees Policy outlined in more detail here.

*Important note: From 1st September 2022, all Seller Plan monthly fees remain unchanged, but our commission on sales will increase by 2% for all plans:
  • Starter plan: from 40% to 42%*
  • Standard and Professional plan: from 33% to 35%*
The new commission percentage will take effect for any order placed on or after 1st September 2022.

UK VAT from 1 January 2021

From 1 January 2021, UK VAT at 20% is only chargeable by Artfinder on services provided to UK-based artists i.e. commission, subscription, and paid promotion services.

VAT charged on commission will lead to an effective 6.6% extra deduction from the revenue you receive from your artwork sale unless you are VAT registered, in which case you will be able to reclaim the VAT from HMRC on your VAT return.
