Here are the most important things to watch out for to keep your account in good standing:
Keep the availability of your works up to date (whether listed for save or via Collect). "Hedging" (listing a work for purchase that you do not have the right to sell in order to solicit demand) is not permitted.
The works you list must be authentic and you must have the right to sell them. Any plagiarized, stolen, or fake listings may result in immediate termination. You are required to accept a return and offer a refund if a sold work proves inauthentic.
All works must be accurately described, including, but not limited to, the condition of the work, signature and inscription information, edition number, and materials used.
All works must meet our listing requirements. If a work does not meet the requirements, it will be unpublished by Strada.
Treat all users with respect. We are building a community of mutual respect and support. We ask that you treat each user as you would a long term supporter of your art.
Ship works promptly and with care. Ship works promptly using a trusted shipper. Insure your works, and if something goes wrong, work with us to make it right for the collector.
Artworks must be sold on-platform through Collect.
All communication with a buyer must take place through Strada.
Shipping must be through an international, recognized carrier with available tracking information and a signature required for delivery. You must provide proof on request.
Images must be of a high quality, and accurately depict the work for sale. For editioned works, an image of another work from the same edition may not be used.
While we recognize that it is common practice to use Photoshop or other image editing software on photographs, such software may only be used to provide an accurate depiction of the item for sale.
Editing software may be used to:
Editing software may not be used to:
Crop out the edge of the image
Obscure edition, numbering, or inscription information
Remove condition issues, such as wear, creasing, or foxing
You must also have the right to use the image (or images) submitted. Images from auction houses or third parties may not be used, unless it is of the particular work in question and the rights holder has specifically granted permission.
