Are the commissions for selling work negotiable?
We're afraid not. We work hard to get the sales and take care of every aspect from listing the artwork, client liaison, organising payments and shipping. The only time we can look at negotiating commissions is for large volume deals where a number of artworks are consigned.
Assuming the artwork I have consigned sells, when do I get the sale proceeds?
Payment is made to your designated bank account within 10 business days of Addicted Art Gallery receiving the full sale proceeds from the buyer.
Can I advertise work elsewhere if I have consigned with Addicted Art Gallery?

For artwork to be shipped flat or crated, you will need to contact us to get an exact quote.
If there is no one available at the delivery address to accept the artwork, you will be asked to rearrange delivery for an alternative date or to collect the artwork from a specified place. Where the delivery address is within Singapore and you wish the artwork to be redelivered to you, you shall be liable for the cost and the goods shall not be redelivered until we have received payment in full.
* Costs are subject to change without notice.
How safe is it to use my credit card?
Your security is our top priority. The personal information you enter into our checkout is protected using state of the art software. This ensures any information you submit will be encrypted and is kept secure. Your payment card information is handled using the utmost security by our online payment provider PayPal, one of the largest online payment providers in the world. Once you have completed your transaction, Addicted Art Gallery will not hold any of your card information. PayPal will not use any of the information you have supplied for any purpose other than to complete your card transaction.
I live overseas, how does customs affect delivery?
Please be aware that our shipping and handling charges do not cover any fees your local customs might charge. Each country has its own "Import Duty". We recommend that you check with your local Customs Office to find out if there may be additional charges.
Is transit insurance included in the shipping and handling cost?
Unless you are in Singapore, transit insurance is not included in the shipping and handling cost. It is however, offered to you during the checkout process and will be added to your total if selected.
The artwork purchased from Addicted Art Gallery is shipped by a third-party. The risk of loss and or damage passes to you upon our delivery of the artwork to the third-party carrier. In other words, once the courier has your work, we are no longer responsible for it.
Transit insurance will cover loss or damage.
We highly recommend you purchase insurance with your order as this will ensure your artwork is fully covered from our hands to yours. Having said that, the insurance purchase choice is completely up to you.
What forms of payment are available?
Our online payment provider is PayPal. Alternatively, you can transfer funds directly to our account. Our bank details are included in your purchase invoice. All applicable bank fees are to be covered by you.

Holding deposits are non refundable after the 7 day holding period.
