How quickly can you sell my painting ?
We can't assure you how quickly we can sell your painting, or if your painting will sell - it really all depends on the customer choices and preferences - but you can be assured of best efforts from us.
What type of paintings sell ?
There is no fixed formula as to what kind of paintings sell. We encourage our artists to try out different styles, and subjects in modern taste to see better results. Fizdi is more of a platform where customers look for art for decorating their homes, not only for art collection. So it is advisable to have both kind of genres in your collection - decorative paintings as well as deep art. To be able to find success on the platform please consider following tips
1. Please upload atleast 25 paintings and above to see good results. 2. Please make in sizes 18 inches and higher. Minor sizes do not sell much. 3. Please make art on canvas, rather than paper and other surfaces. 4. Warm shades (Yellow, Brown, Red, Orange) sell more than cool shades (Blue, Green, Mauve etc). 5. Please keep art unframed, or in a position that it can be removed from frame on order. If you upload art as framed, it would increase cost by quite a bit, as courier cost is very high to transport frames. 6. Handmade Art under Rs. 20,000 ($300) usually sell quickly
Do you hold offline Exhibitions ?
No, we only operate in Online mode.
After registering my artwork with fizdi.com, would I still be able to sell my artwork through other sales channels ?
Yes, you can sell on other sales channels too. However there is just one condition - whenever a sale is made on other channels, you would have to immediately mark it inactive in the artist portal too. If the artist fails in doing so, and somebody orders the sold painting on Fizdi – it would leave a very bad impression about us with the customer, and they might never return back. We will deactivate artists account in that case, and send notice for collection of our commission lost. We also urge artists to inform us if they are going on a long vacation so that we can keep their paintings invisible for that period of time.
