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

Questions that are asked on the frequent.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I really like Arty due to the fact it has an easy and straightforward interface, easy to understand for both parties (artist and commissioner), and what I liked most was that it lets the person pay with PayPal, and you can payout with another method that’s not PayPal (though they support that too!)
I mostly get commissions from DeviantArt, and I love how easy it is to let my clients pay on Arty. Arty is super simple to use - just a three-step process and you’ve got yourself a successful commission. And since Arty uses TransferWise for payouts, I have the money sent to my bank account without worrying about currency conversion fees 😁 Thanks Arty! 💕
As a commission artist, I mainly use PayPal for payments. I’m glad Arty can provide an alternative by credit card without much hassle and being able to protect me and my client at the same time. It’s easy to set up and use too! Arty charges way less than other platforms also.
I love how Arty cares for its users, I have never really seen a platform that reaches out to its users to ensure they’re getting the best experience. Arty has been lovely for me as an artist, and I will surely recommend this to other artists I know that also take commissions!
I wasn’t able to accept international clients ever since PayPal stopped activity in my country. Arty came in like a holy saviour! Through Arty, I didn’t need any other platform to safely get paid into my bank account. The system is easy and it helps protect both the commissioner and artist. The support is quite nice as well! This is going to help me a lot, and I’m sure it will help other international artists too! 💕
I totally recommend Arty as it’s safe for both the artist and client and it doesn’t have any hidden fees (it charges exactly what you input on the invoice). They just added even more features like emailing your client the Arty invoice straight from the Dashboard!
Using Arty was so easy and it was essentially the ideal platform for me: security for both the client and the artist, ease of payment and payout, and it makes accepting commissions really formal. Additionally, Arty does not take a lot from your earnings, I remember struggling to reach my goal since the site I used took 20%.
