How much does it cost to sell on Artfinder?

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


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.
