With Shopify store sales you are the trader. This means the print sale transaction is between you and the customer. We act as the print fulfiller, meaning there is a separate transaction between you and us for the production costs. With regard to sales from the Art Catalogue, we also handle payments for the artists share of the profits, by debiting your card for this artists share at the time we debit for production costs.
This means refunds/returns other than defected prints (see below) are at the discretion of you as the trader and your returns policy.
Customer change of mind:
If a customer requests a refund/return, for a reason such as they have changed their mind and do not want the print anymore, then choosing to refund them is entirely your discretion.
If you choose to, which we recommend within a reasonable time period (which should be clearly stated in your returns policy), prints should be returned to your address and once received you would issue them a refund from your Shopify account. The production costs and shipping charges we charged you on this sale will not be refunded to you, as this was a separate transaction. We will also not refund you the artist's share of the profits, but you could opt to resell this print in your store. Be careful to clearly mark this as a used print and set it up as a separate product to the products that will be fulfilled by us.
Damaged of defective print:
If a print is damaged, or the order is in some way defective - we will send a replacement print free of charge, and refund the cost of shipping to your card so you can then refund this onto your customer.
The process for returning a print is as follows:
Please ask your customer to return their print(s) along with any limited edition certificates (if applicable) to our studio:
74 Kingsland Road
Once the print has been received and inspected at our studio, we will email you with confirmation of the refund amount to you.
