Sell your art online
Use Govedarou Art Gallery, the top destination for original art, to sell your art online
If you are an artist and would like to sell your art, we'd like you to consider joining us at Govedarou Art Gallery. We are specialists in finding customers for artists living and working not only in Greece but abroad as well.
It's free to sell your art
The first thing to understand about us is that there are no joining fees. This is not only fantastic news for your wallet, it also puts you at a great advantage over the art sites that charge you gallery fees. This is because the sites which charge fees are naturally focussed only on recruiting more artists, and not on actually selling art.
Here at govedaroufineartgallery.com we only make money when you sell your art! That's because we take a modest commission from every sale. Even this doesn't impact on your earnings because you are in full control of your prices for each artwork, and you can simply factor in the commission when setting the price.
Because of this business model, our entire operation is geared towards finding customers for your art. We can afford to be very choosy and pick only the best artists to represent.
One more reason why GovedarouFineArtGallery.com is a great place to sell your art
Because we are totally customer focussed, our customers can rate your art and provide feedback pre-sale. We also email every single customer post-sale to get feedback on their experience of buying art through govedaroufineartgallery.com. Happy customers means regular customers and up to 50% of the art we sell is to repeat customers.

For the full artist terms and conditions of service, please read the artist terms.
You set the price
You know how much your art sells for, so you decide the selling price of your art. We take a commission of 35% from your price. This commission covers our costs of advertising, marketing, customer services, credit card processing fees, invoicing and admin.
You must include packaging and delivery costs
You are responsible for the costs of materials, packaging, and delivery to anywhere in Greece or abroad. Therefore you must set your price to include this cost. As an established artist, you probably already know how much it costs to package and deliver your style of artworks. Contact your preferred courier to establish the cost. Check delivery prices carefully as you are wholly responsible for the cost of delivery.
We are attracting a growing number of customers from overseas so please consider the option to deliver abroad and include overseas delivery charges for each of your artworks.
HOW TO GET STARTED
HOW YOU GET PAID
Customers pay online through our credit card processing facilities or bank transfer. When payment is received, we will notify you of the details of the purchase by email, text message and if necessary by phone. You must then package and dispatch the artwork to arrive with the customer within 5 working days (or more when abroad). Once we have confirmed that the artwork arrived safely, you will be paid approximately 28 days after that date (this is comprised of 7 days for delivery, 14 day money back guarantee, 7 days for return). You will be paid by bank transfer or by the other methods indicated.
14 day money back guarantee
To stimulate sales and foster trust with potential customers, we offer all customers a 14 day no-quibble money back guarantee, which you must adhere to. The guarantee allows customers to return artworks within 14 days if they are not fully satisfied. They can return the artwork for any reason within this period. They will have to pay the postage and insurance costs if they return an artwork. You are not eligible to recoup the cost of delivering the artwork to the customer.
