  11. How does BusaccaGallery.com make money?
  12. We make money by you posting and giving us your bottom line price (wholesale price) on your object and adding a nominal markup on it. We ask you to estimate a retail price just for our reference, however we establish the retail price that the buyer sees and eventually pays. The difference between your wholesale price and the retail price (set by us) is the margin BusaccaGallery.com receives. Once an item is approved for sale to the buyer, you will receive payment of the wholesale price. This is a consignment agreement. Our site allows visitors to make well-informed buying decisions in addition to presenting their objects for sale in a most compelling format.

  13. What kind of photographs do you require?
  14. You must have professional looking photos or we will not publish the art object. In order to best showcase your object, you will need a minimum of three very good photos. Show the art object in different angles so the buyer can see the details of your object and make a good assessment of its quality. We encourage you to provide a photo on a seamless background like a museum photo to command the highest price.

  15. Why do I have to manage my profile?
  16. You must update and maintain your own content and you will need to let us know if you have sold your art object on your own. You will be 100% obligated to go back into your portfolio and inform us that it has been sold or you will be charged a finance fee.

  19. How do I get leads?
  20. We give you the new contact information and the new lead for free after we have the money in hand. The more you post the better chances of new sales and more leads. This means you can advertise almost anything anonymously for no cost and make a profit. You can promote anything and virtually eliminate all of the risk because no one knows where the high-end art object is within the world until that art object has been sold.

  21. What it your shipping policy?
  22. The seller/owner of the art object will warehouse, pack, ship, and insure all items. However, the cost of shipping is sole responsibility of the buyer. Once BusaccaGallery.com has confirmed the sale the seller will manage getting the object to the buyer. The new owner of the piece pays the full cost (including shipping) unless the seller makes special arrangements with the buyer. If the art object was misrepresented in any way the seller will be responsible. We help represent your transaction with our online software and see ourselves as your online broker or traffic cop on the internet.

  23. Do I have to get an estimate for the shipping costs?
  24. Yes, you must give us the estimated shipping cost, and the art insurance company you want to work with. If you do not have one, BusaccaGallery.com can suggest several options for you. The seller of the art object pays the full cost of the insurance, unless the seller makes special arrangements with the buyer. If you ship with out insurance you will be 100% liable.

  25. How will I be paid?
  26. Once the sale is approved by BusaccaGallery.com the Seller is paid automatically through the website's software within twenty days of delivery and approval from the new owner. Our bank's job is to insure all transactions between BusaccaGallery.com and our vendors.

  29. What is free consignment?
  30. To consign is to transfer something, a work of art or an antique in this case, to a merchant so that it will be sold within a beautiful and high end environment that the seller is not able to provide. Consignment is the act of consigning, which is placing goods in the hands of another, but retaining ownership until the goods are sold or the owner can find someone to buy it. Consignment enables sellers to gain greater exposure for an item they are attempting to sell. At our online gallery we charge no fees to consign your objects. As the owner of an object, you simply set a wholesale price at which you agree to sell the object. As the retailer, BusaccaGallery.com sets a final retail price — the price the Buyer pays. The difference between the two prices is referred to as "the margin", which is how BusaccaGallery.com is compensated. There is no transfer of merchandise or ownership of merchandise until a sale to the Buyer is approved by BusaccaGallery.com. You post your objects, we approve them, sell them, and charge no fees. It's like having your own online store completely free. For hundreds of years, consignment has been a very lucrative way of selling goods without transferring ownership until they are sold.
