To Sellers (Artists & Curators)
Each Skeuomo marketplace activity between the buyer/seller as it pertains to contract agreements to sell and/or purchase artwork is between both parties involved and not Skeuomo. We are not the agent, intermediary or other representative of neither the seller (“Artist” or “Curator”) nor the buyer (“Buyer” or “Collector”). We are not involved in any of these transaction agreements, we simply provide the venue.
Sellers (“Artists” or “Curators”) that have subscribed to our paid plan with an approved Artist or Curator Account will have the option to track payment amounts, refunds, and fees related to transactions. It is important for sellers (“Artists” or “Curators”) to provide accurate personal information during the registration process to avoid having your account deactivated or disapproved.
Sellers (“Artists” or “Curators”) are fully responsible for shipping sold artwork to their customers (“Buyer” or “Collector”) as indicated during shipping and checkout options. Ensure you have secured a verified shipping carrier account with the listed third-party shipping providers to begin selling your artwork: UPS, DHL, FedEx or other shipping providers. You the seller (“Artists” or “Curators”) cannot sell artwork without a valid shipping carrier account that can be connected to your Skeuomo Member Account. Sellers (“Artists” or “Curators”) will then be able to connect their shipping carrier accounts within Skeuomo. By doing this, any process shipping costs, tracking notifications and delivery estimates will be automatically calculated. Your customers (“Buyers” or “Collectors”) will see these additional costs, delivery options and estimated delivery dates upon checkout. Skeuomo does not provide shipping labels; this can be arranged with your shipping carrier (s). When shipping artwork (Artworks), sellers (“Artists” or “Curators”) must comply with all local and international shipping and customs regulations and must ship purchased artwork (Artworks) within 30 days beginning on date of purchase.
To Buyers (Collectors)
When you the customer (“Buyer” or “Collector”) purchase artwork (Artwork) on our platform, you will purchase directly from a third party (“Artist” or “Seller”). That seller (“Artist”) will be identified within the Artist Profile page and Gallery (“Shop”). Each seller (“Artist” or “Curator”) on Skeuomo has own processing times, warranties, inclusions or exclusions of accessories and shipping methods and costs associated with shipping your purchased artwork to your address – international and custom may apply and are dependent on third party shipping carrier policies. Each seller has his or her own return policies, which should be outlined in their artwork (Artworks) detail page. Not all sellers (“Artists”) accept returns.
You can only purchase artwork (Artworks) using the payment method(s) displayed when you checkout. Skeuomo uses Stripe Payments to perform many of the services related to payment processing, including card processing, currency exchange, identity verification, fraud analysis and regulatory compliance. The provider and processing time for your payment will vary based on the country in which you’re located. You can arrange for in-person or alternate forms of payment with the seller (“Artist”) however that excludes Skeuomo from any involvement. We (Skeuomo Inc.) encourage you to exercise caution and to use good judgment in all interactions online and in person.

If you are a seller (“Artist” or “Curator”) posting artwork (Artworks) you must warrant that you are the sole creator and exclusive owner of all artworks displayed by you on Skeuomo and/or you are authorized to sell those artworks (Artworks) for artists you represent .

We do not appraise artwork nor do we provide suggestions on pricing. Posting unfairly priced artwork (too expensive) will result in low consideration by customers (“Buyers” or “Collectors”) and would require you to readjust artwork pricing thus decreasing your Artist or Curator Profile credibility within our community.

Ultimately, you the seller (Artist or Curator) determine and control your prices.
