Why is my order Under Review?

As a security measure to protect all sellers, we review potentially higher-risk orders.

When this happens, we place a hold on the order and ask the artist not to ship/deliver the artwork(s) associated with this order. 

Will I get notified that I have a new order which is currently under review? 

You will not receive an email notification until the order has been released and is confirmed safe to proceed. However, the order will appear as  Under Review in the Seller Portal. 

Kindly note that you won't see your customer's shipping address due to the hold placed on this order until we release it, and you will be invited to proceed with shipping.

When you see an order Under review, do not reach out to the customer to provide the shipping address. You will see the shipping address once our review is complete. 

We aim to review the order within 48 hours of placing it on hold but occasionally it can take longer if we require more information from the customer. Once our review is complete, we'll either approve the order or cancel the order. 

NOTE: As part of our standard policy, if we do not hear back from your customer within 5 working days from when the review takes place we will then have to cancel the order.

If the order is not approved, we will advise you not to ship/deliver the artwork(s). This helps the artist to avoid potential losses.

As a global marketplace, we must ensure our sellers are passing AML (anti-money laundering) and KYC (know your customer) checks. We may need to carry out an ID check when orders are under review to ensure our customers are buying from legitimate, self-representing artists and galleries. Given the high value of goods sold this is a practice that is fairly common with a number of online galleries, who incorporate identity checks in a similar way.
