Shopping Information

This page provides a brief summary of how to make a purchase and contains the artist's shopping terms and privacy statement.

How to place an order and pay for your purchase

Basket icon
Click this to proceed to placing an order for the artwork. You can find the basket icon next to an artwork in an artist's Mini Gallery or in the art search on the website. It will only appear if the artist has set up their shopping basket, set a price and marked the artwork as 'available now'. (If there is no basket please contact the artist using one of the various enquiry link options instead.)

Then either opt to buy art online using PayPal or place an order for an offline payment method eg. cheque.

Paying by credit / debit card
If the artist has a PayPal account you will be able to pay online using a credit or debit card and will make the payment through the secure online payment basket provided by PayPal. PayPal is an online payments service provider, please see for further information.

You can select the delivery option of your choice and then click 'add to my basket' which takes you to the PayPal website. You will then be able to see that the page is secure as it will have a padlock (normally at the bottom right hand side of the window) and the URL of the website address will begin with https://www. rather than http://www.

Neither Mini Gallery nor the artists featured have access to any credit / debit card details.

Paying by cheque
If the artist does not have a PayPal account or one or other party prefers not to use an online payment process you can still place the order and pay by other means such as a cheque as stated in the artist's shopping terms.

Additionally, an artist may have an alternative means of payment to offer such as WorldPay or Nochex and you can make your own individual arrangements.

Shopping terms and privacy statements
Mini Gallery provides standard shopping terms and privacy statements as part of our artists' membership benefits and each artist personalises the set text with their own individual contact details etc. You can view and print the terms and privacy statement for this artist below - this page may be found by clicking on 'Shopping' within the individual Mini Gallery concerned. There are further links to view and print them beside the 'add to basket' and 'place order' buttons.
