Getting Started

A revolutionary art commission escrow service

Sell your commissions quicker, cheaper, and to the world – secured with Arty’s blockchain escrow technology.

Step 1: Start a new commission!

Step 1: Start a new commission!

No matter how or who requests artwork from you, Arty handles the commission from start to finish!

Once you’ve been approached, start a commission on Arty where you’ll write up the details for the artwork, set your price, and share your unique commission link with the client.

Step 2: Publish to the blockchain and create something beautiful!

Step 2: Let us handle the hard stuff.

When your client visits the unique link, they’ll see the details and can pay for the commission with their card or PayPal through Arty – agreeing to the contract.

Once we have confirmation the client has paid for your work, you pay a small fixed fee to publish the “commission contract”.

This contract is then set in (digital) stone on the blockchain (a world first!) making Arty’s escrow services decentralised, irreversible, transparent, and non-repudiable!

Step 3: Deliver your art & get paid!

You’re done!? Upload the finished piece and Arty will securely share a sample of the commission for your client to approve.

Once everyone is happy, Arty releases the funds and you can payout to your bank account (or PayPal). Even if you’re from overseas, we’ll exchange the payout to your local currency at the best available rate!

Arty can save you money and hassle while managing commissions for clients all over the world!

FAQ

Questions that are asked on the frequent.

What countries does Arty support?

Almost all of them! We support PayPal and credit or debit card payments from customers in over 45 countries.

Artist Payouts: We support more than 50 currencies for bank transfers with TransferWise. They will manage the currency exchange (if necessary) with no mark-up regardless of where your clients live or how they paid! We also support payouts via PayPal!

Do artists have public profiles or pricing sheets on Arty?

No. Arty is not a portfolio or site for advertising yourself as an artist. We let artists find customers however they like; such as on Twitter, Tumblr, DeviantArt, Instagram, personal websites, or just Email.

The artist uses Arty to safely accept payment and deliver the commission without having to worry about foreign currencies, using an escrow service, or dealing with a dispute by themselves.

Why are some prices in AUD?

While Arty is international, behind the scenes we’re an Australian business and payments to our escrow account are made in Australian Dollar (AUD).

If you are purchasing a commission, PayPal or your bank will exchange your local currency into AUD for you. Don’t worry about it, mate!

Can I hold my earnings in Arty and payout when I want?

Absolutely! Arty will hold your earnings until you’re ready. You can use the calculator on TransferWise to estimate what fee they’ll charge on your payout (remember the sending currency is AUD).

Pro-tip: The higher the payout amount, the lower the TransferWise fee.

How do I create an account?

If you’re an artist, you create an account during ‘Step 2’ of Arty’s three step process. If you’re purchasing a commission, you won’t need an account.

Do I still pay the fixed fee if the sale falls through?

No. You only pay the fixed fee after the client has accepted the commission details and paid into Arty’s escrow account. If your client bails before they’ve paid, you won’t be charged anything.
