When you receive an order, you have two options: you confirm the order, or you cancel the order. If your artwork is still available for sale, you should confirm the order. If not, you have to cancel the order.

Order confirmation

When you have a sale on Art Evince, please send a confirmation message to the Buyer. Please use the Internal Messaging System. Always conduct transactions and communicate on Art Evince. After confirming the order, you will have seven (7) days to ship the artwork.

Example of Order Confirmation Message:

Hello [Buyer’s Name]. This is to confirm that the Order # [Order Number] has been received. I will ship the artwork within 7 days, and I will update the Tracking number and Tracking URL on the Order details page. Thank you.

Recommendation: Please send a message to Art Evince as soon as you have received an order. 

Always follow up with the customer after a purchase has gone through. This will increase trust in you and also ensure that no damage has been incurred during the course of delivery.

Update the tracking information

  • You can View and Print the invoice.

  • You can Add a tracking number (Tracking number / URL) or Update the Order Status (Processing / Shipping / Payment received).

  • When you update the order status as Shipped, the buyer will receive an e-mail confirming the Shipped status of the order.
  • After the buyer confirms that the order has been received, you will see the following message on your order sheet (Approved).

Then you will be able to see your Earnings at and request a Payout at

IMPORTANT: As a security measure to protect all sellers, we review potentially higher-risk orders. If the transaction seems suspicious, we will inform the artist straight away and ask them not to ship or deliver the artwork associated with this order.

Cancelling an order

In case you cannot fulfil the order, please open a ticket at to request the cancellation of the order. We will then cancel the order and refund the buyer. As Art Evince has an exceptionally good reputation in the eyes of art collectors, please keep your Shop up to date, and remove the artworks that are unavailable. If you abuse the cancellation procedure, your Shop may be closed for lack of seriousness.


There are 3 types of shipping options on Art Evince:

  • Free shipping
  • Shipping included
  • Buyer pays (It is recommended artists add an international shipping cost including the Delivery Duty Paid in order to cover all their shipping expenses).

Artists have to fulfil all orders themselves. After confirming the order, the artist has 7 days to ship the artwork. As a seller, the artist has to pay for the initial outbound shipping. Customers are charged the shipping amount indicated in a seller's shipping profile. This amount is then passed on to sellers when the order is paid out.

Only artworks that are ready to be shipped as soon as possible should be listed on Art Evince, as this is the promise we make to our customers.

Duties and Taxes

Duties are only applied on shipments from one continent to another. It is highly recommended that artists ship their artworks Delivery Duty Paid and allocate additional funds for this in their Shipping Prices. The reason is usually customers get very frustrated when their artwork reaches Customs in their country and they receive a letter asking them to pay additional fees!


All artworks should be sent via a fully traceable and insured method of shipment. As already mentioned, for artworks being shipped internationally, a service should be used which supports sending packages Delivery Duty Paid, and this option should be selected to ensure that all duty and import tax is billed back to the sender. All information declared in any accompanying paperwork should be complete and truthful, including the value and purpose of the shipment.


Art Evince will pay for and arrange the return of all artworks under our 7-day returns guarantee by customers who have changed their mind. In other words, that means Art Evince will arrange for the artwork to be picked up and delivered back to you (regardless of the customer's reason for return) at no cost to you.

We ask for all artworks returned by customers to be prepared in their original packaging for the return journey and will accept no liability for damage sustained on the return leg by artworks not packed in line with these guidelines. For editioned artworks subject to return requests, we reserve the right to offer replacement printing costs in lieu of arranging return shipment.


Art Evince will reimburse outbound shipping costs, up to the amount originally paid by the customer, provided that the customer's reason for return is that they changed their mind. If your artwork is returned because the customer has changed their mind, please reach out to our team, by opening a ticket at to request the initial shipping cost reimbursement and provide us with a shipping receipt.

We will unfortunately not be able to offer reimbursement if the reason for the return is that the artwork arrived damaged or was misrepresented on the site. However, we will provide any transactional information, as necessary, to help you file a claim with your courier.

IMPORTANT: Art Evince is not responsible for any currency conversion differences that may result in a reversed payment.

Earnings: How and when will I be paid?

Set Payout account
