Buying art online can be a great way to start or expand your growing art collection. The major reason to buy paintings online is price. There are also artist communities and online services for artist to help post their artwork. With these art websites you are basically purchasing art directly from the artists themselves which can be a very rewarding experience for both collector and artist. Some artists have their own website for selling artwork online.

Some important tips you need to keep in mind while buying art online are:

  • Be sure the site offers some form of return policy or satisfaction guarantee. This is important because you will be buying original painting without seeing it in person.

  • Your artwork will be shipped to you. Some art websites that are selling artwork online are better than others at boxing and shipping their artwork. Another important thing you need to consider is shipping insurance in the event some form of damage happens to the package during shipping. The shipping insurance should be for the amount you paid for the painting.
