Art and Merchandise
808Arts.com is a marketplace of art products for sale, including original art, fine art prints and merchandise. We do not offer pre-owned items for sale.
Being a Trustworthy Seller
When we list art for sale, we describe the item as accurately as possible and disclose as much information as possible. We take care to be thorough and accurate about details such as the condition, fit, and original price and include photos that demonstrate condition when necessary. This way, you know exactly what it is that you are getting, and the risk of a dispute is decreased.
We strive to ship purchased items to you within five days, unless custom framing is required.
Being a Good Buyer
Great sellers always deserve quick payment. Therefore, as a buyer, you must confirm that you've received and reviewed your purchase within three days after delivery. If you do not do so within three days, the order will be accepted on your behalf automatically.
We strongly encourage thorough communicate before, during, and after each transaction. As a buyer, if you have questions about quality, condition, or fit that are not addressed in the listing, it's best to ask before purchasing the item so you know what you'll be receiving.
