Important information about returning.
Wealth-Of-Art is not responsible for undelivered returns. Additional shipping fees may apply for international returns. Please note that these fees may possibly be avoided if you inform the courier that the item is a return—though we can’t guarantee this as couriers terms vary.
Someone must be present at the time of delivery. Please note that once your order is on its way, we are unable to change the shipping address. Please note that we aim to dispatch your artwork within 5 to 10 business days, however, any dates quoted for delivery of the artwork(s) are indicative only. Time for delivery will not be an essential term of the Contract and Wealth-Of-Art will not be liable for any expenses sustained by the Client arising from any delay in the delivery of the artwork(s) howsoever caused. If the Client wrongfully fails to take delivery of the artwork(s), Wealth-Of-Art shall be under no obligation to refund the price.
The Client must inspect the artwork(s) on delivery and sign the required proof of delivery document or collection acceptance document. A signature on that document will constitute conclusive evidence against the Client of receipt of the quantity of artwork indicated on that document free from any apparent defect or damage. If the artwork(s) is alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, a description of the alleged damage or defect must be given in writing at the time of delivery and signed by or on behalf of the Client.
If you received an damaged artwork:
Despite all our care to pack the artwork carefully, damage could happen during transit. If you receive a damaged artwork you must reported to our team within 24 hours of delivery. Please send close-up (magnified) photographs of the damage to enquiries (at) wealth-of-art.com, along with your name, order number, artist and artwork name. Our team will provide a return shipment label and will offer other options.
You understand and agree that Wealth-Of-Art uses reasonable efforts to display the colors of artwork(s), as accurately as possible on the site. However, because individual computer monitors may display colors differently, Wealth-Of-Art is not responsible for the color accuracy of any artwork(s) displayed on the site and disclaims all liability in this regard.
· ARTWORK SURFACE
Some artwork(s) are showing fragments sticking out or some “imperfections” on the surface due to their nature. Please read carefully the artwork description. If you have any doubts before the purchase, please get in touch with us.
· TAKING CARE OF THE ARTWORK IN THE FUTURE
Frame your new artwork using UV-blocking glass. If you decide not to frame your artwork (this might apply to boxed canvases), please make sure that you hang your new purchase away from direct heat (fires, radiators & heaters) or moisture sources (bathrooms & kitchens). Never expose your paintings to extreme heat, cold or humidity. Be aware that direct sunlight will fade the colours of oil paintings. Dust needs to be removed from the artwork(s) regularly by using a very soft brush with no metal parts. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: enquiries (at) wealth-of-art.com
8. SHIPPING INFORMATION
Our shipping rates are based on courier fees determined by a combination of the shipping addresses of both the collector and the artist(s), as well as the measurements and weight of the artwork. In order to calculate the shipping cost, please select your shipping destination from the list of countries listed on the checkout page. Your shipping costs automatically populate on the checkout page and in the shipping breaking down. In addition to shipping charges, the buyer will also be responsible for paying international customs fees, determined by the country the artwork is being shipped to. For all the artwork(s) on the website, VAT (value added tax) fees will be included in your online checkout process. From the checkout page, you may choose to go ahead and purchase the work or cancel the transaction. If you don't see your destination on the list, please get in touch with us and we will try to do our best to arrange a delivery for you. We work closely with our shipping partners to minimise the potential impact of custom delays on our international customers, however, certain destinations such as Russia and China can be challenging. To keep the prices of shipping modest we are shipping our artwork(s) unframed. The shipping cost and handling cost may vary due to the type and size of the artwork. A large work, for example, will costs substantially more than a medium or small artwork(s) due to the packing material cost and likely increased weight.
IMPORTANT. Please make a note:
In order to deliver your artwork safely the first time, please state your delivery instructions as specifically and as detailed as possible. Provide a secure shipping address where the artwork will be safely protected from bad weather. It would be brilliant if a friend, neighbour, porter or a colleague would be able to receive, sign for, and look after your artwork when it arrives. So please be sure to provide a delivery address where you are certain someone will help out if you are not available. We insure each artwork during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to you. We require a signature for any parcel delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not yourself for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by Wealth-Of-Art and transfer of responsibility in the same way.

18. ARTWORK SOLD ON A “SALE’ BASIS
When purchasing from Wealth-of-Art other than through the Wealth-of-Art website, artworks will be sold “as seen.” This means that once inspected by the buyer, the artwork will be deemed accepted by the buyer. Therefore it is essential that you inspect artworks purchased in this way carefully, as Wealth-of-Art cannot be held liable for issues raised after the sale has taken place. This is to ensure that if an artwork is damaged by a client in transporting it to the Client’s home after the sale, that Wealth-of-Art is not liable for aforesaid damage. Equally, the picture and frame is sold as provided by the artist, Wealth-of-Art is not liable for issues of interpretation as to the quality of the picture, its canvas or its frame.
19. PAYMENT AND PROVISION OF ARTWORK ON A “SALE” BASIS.
When buying on an “as seen” basis, payment will be made at the time of purchase, and funds taken immediately from the Client’s account. In return for payment, the artwork will be handed over to the Client immediately and the transaction will be deemed complete by Wealth-of-Art.
