Commissions, payment breakdown and promotions.

Like galleries, retailers and other online marketplaces, we do quite a bit of work to keep “the lights on” and make it as easy as possible for art to sell on our platform and through our private collectors and commercial buyers. 

Founder, Andrea Bogart is committed to Embrace Creatives and hires experts in various areas of business – she reinvests EC commissions to continually market artwork and develop new features, making buying and selling easier.

When you receive your payment (either via Pay Pal or Stripe) it will include the 60% commission from your retail price plus any shipping fees paid by the buyer.

COMMISSION: Embrace Creatives will receive a 40% commission on the final sale price. For a limited time, when a promotional discount code or trade discount is offered, the discount will come from Embrace Creatives, not the artist. (See below for more information on Promotional Discounts)

Any Payment Gateway Charges will be split 50/50% and deducted from your payout. Sales tax is paid by Embrace Creatives.

Example: A new collector purchases your art worth $3,000. As it’s their first purchase so they receive a 10% discount. At checkout they pay $65 for shipping and a 3% sales tax.

Sale price: $2,700 (3000 less 10%)

Your 60% commission : $1,800.00 (60% of 3000)

Shipping reimbursement : $65.00

50% of $3.00 Payment Gateway Charge : $1.50

Your payout will equal $1,863.50 (1800 + 65 – 1.50)

Sales tax : $81 (EC files and pays all sales tax)

EC receives from sale : $900 (2700 – 1800)


If a discount has been applied to your sale, it’s because the buyer redeemed a special promotional discount while purchasing your work. EC offers promotional discounts as an incentive for new collectors to choose from the constantly changing selection of artwork on our site. We find that offering promotions allows artists to gain the attention of collectors previously unaware of their work and increases the percentage of repeat sales. 

The discount codes currently given to official collectors with an active EC account is 10% off their initial purchase. For works sold to the trade – interior designers and architects, for example – we give discounts of 10% or 20% off of all artwork; original, made-to-order and reproductions.

Embrace Creatives will receive a 40% commission on the final sale price for each and every sale made through our website or private projects. For a limited time, if a promotional discount code or trade discount is offered, the discount will be deducted from Embrace Creatives and not the artist. We reserve the right to alter this decision at any time and without informing our sellers.

It is worth remembering that Embrace Creatives commission is 40%, whereas the gallery standard is 50%. This means that you will be earning more through your sales with EC and our online showroom offers greater reach than a typical gallery.

It is also important to note that during your initial application, you agreed to all of our conditions (included in our official statement of terms and conditions).

Embrace Creatives reserves the right to promote and market Original Works of Art and/or Digital Works through the use of sales and/or discounts.
