FAQ - Artists

How it works?

Artists upload their paintings to our database from around the world.

When you buy a painting, we contact the artists to make sure this unique and original painting is still available. 

The artist then packages the paintings and ships it to the buyer. 

Depending on the location of the artist and your own location, you might have to pay for customs or import fees. No such fees for shipping within the same country or within the European Union (EU).

If you have a problem with a painting, get in contact with us (hello@wydr.co). We will deal with the artist and make sure everybody is happy.

We keep your money on a frozen account until you have received the painting. Only then the artist will receive his share. That way we can make sure the painting is delivered and confirms to your expectations.


What is wydr?

Wydr is the open art-trading platform – your easy access to the art world.

For the artist, we provide exposure, a marketplace to facilitate the selling process, and channel user feedback in a new and unique way. It is all about bringing your art to the right people.

Because your art deserves to be seen by the right people. 

How can I join as an artist?

As an artist there are no restrictions as we are the open art-trading platform: if you want us to show and sell your art to the world just follow the links on either the app or the website. We would need the following information – as indicated on the form to upload your art work:

  1. your name (artist name)
  2. your location (for international shipping)
  3. the name of the art piece
  4. A high quality image of your art piece to be displayed in the wydr app
  5. what is the size of the art piece 
    (please give measurements in m/cm/mm)
  6. which technique did you use 
    (e.g. oil on canvas)
  7. what is the price you would like to get for the art piece? (please give price in EUR)
    (please take into account that we will add a commission and shipment fees on your requested price – for details see below)

And every artist can join as an art lover as well: just download the app, register yourself, and start exploring the art world. 

What do I have to do when an art lover buys one of my art pieces?

  1. You will receive an email from us, telling you that one of your art pieces has been sold.
  2. Celebrate!
  3. Read the email again. We are providing you with the address of the buyer. So please pack the art piece accordingly and have it shipped to the art lover.
  4. Let us know how much you had to pay for shipment of the art piece!? Don’t forget to include your bank account information so that we can give you your money.
  5. As soon as the art lover receives your art piece we will have the money for the art piece and shipping transferred to you.

    How to pack the art piece?

    As you created the art piece we trust in you that you know what to do in order to have it shipped safely to the art lover. In doubt, there are plenty of videos to be found on YouTube that describe tips and tricks and detail. 

    What happens if I sell an art piece that is also displayed on wydr?

    As long as your art piece is displayed on wydr it is “open” for sale through wydr. However, you are allowed to sell it through other channels. Once sold, don’t forget to remove your art piece from wydr. Just write us an email to hello@wydr.co and we will remove the art piece from our database.

    How is the final price determined?

    We have different categories on wydr like „original paintings”, "new media", "sculptures" and „photography“.

    We ask you (the artist / the seller) how much you want to have for the painting (in EUR). Depending on which category your listed item belongs to (original vs. print) we will add a commission and shipping cost to your asked price. For original art works we add a commission of 30%, for digital prints and other media the final price depends on the size of the work and your requested price. Our commission might be up to 100%.

    For example: You ask for 200 EUR. Then your item will be listed at 260 EUR. If sold, you get your 200 EUR, resulting in a revenue split of 77 / 23%

    What is the shipping fee and how is it determined?

    As a basis we are using the ratest that are available by shipping providers such as Hermes (see also https://www.myhermes.de/wps/portal/paket/Home/privatkunden ). Once we have sufficient data and the technological solutions, we will calculate the shipping fees according to buyer/seller location, size of the item, weight of the item, etc.

    You don't have to include the shipping costs in your asking price. We will take care of that. Whereever in the world you might be and whereever in the world the buyer might be, we will cover the shipping costs (please keep them reasonable and don't have James Bond accompanying your shipping, but use a standard way of shipping) ;)

    Ready to hang?

    not ready
    to hang on a wall



    Paintings that do not contain any  bars to support it.

    You will have to get it stretched on wooden bars.

    to hang on a wall



    Means that the painting comes with wood stretcher bars attached against the back of the painting. This simply means that you are now able to hang your painting on a wall once received.

    to hang on a wall



    Allows you to protect the painting for several years. Of course, it is ready to hang once received

    it depends...



    That could be anything else... From an installation or sculpture, to paintings on a special surface like wood, stone or glas.

    Because we are global and have artists offering many different types of works, It is always recommended to review the full artwork description.
