New to buying art online?We know that buying art on the Internet is a new experience for many of our visitors – here are some of our happy customers who are delighted they did shop online for art.
How to place an order and pay for your purchase
Click this to proceed to placing an order for the artwork.
Then either opt to buy art online using PayPal or placing an offline order.
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 www.paypal.co.uk 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.
Mini Gallery and the artists featured do not 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 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.
We highly recommend reading the terms and privacy statement before making your purchase and printing a copy for your reference.
