Please note that any postage or shipping guidance provided by ArtULTRA in the form of recommendations comes with no assumption of liability should any damage occur in transit.

13.2 All sales on ArtULTRA are deemed final, unless the Artwork is damaged in transit between the Artist and the Purchaser.
13.3 Returns requests for damaged Artworks submitted by Purchasers will be sent to ArtULTRA. We will notify you immediately via your nominated notification email address of any return requests for Artworks sold through ArtULTRA. We will ask for photographic evidence of damage, which we will pass on to you so you may claim against your shipping insurance, as appropriate.
13.4 ArtULTRA accepts no liability for damage to Artworks in transit from you to a Purchaser. It is solely your responsibility to ensure that you package your Artworks sufficiently, ship them via a service that will minimise the likelihood of damage and/or organise insurance to protect against damages in transit.
13.5 ArtULTRA will accept no liability for Artworks lost in transit on their way to the Purchaser.

13.7 ArtULTRA will refund the Purchaser with the entire transaction amount including shipping costs where damage has been confirmed. For the avoidance of doubt, this means we will not transfer any funds to you in such instance.

13.8 Purchasers and Artists may also agree on an alternative solution to a full refund including commissioned Artworks or exchanges against another Artwork from the Artist at the Artist’s sole discretion and upon the Purchaser’s agreement. ArtULTRA may facilitate the discussion between Artist and Purchaser but will have no further involvement in the process other than stated herein.

14. Transfer of Sales Proceeds
14.1 ArtULTRA will transfer the entirety of the sales price, shipping and packaging cost to you following the successful sale of an Artwork.
14.2 Successful sale means that ArtULTRA has received confirmation of delivery to the Purchaser, that the Artwork has been received without damage and is accepted as final by the Purchaser.
14.3 You must provide us with the details of your nominated bank account so that we may complete the transfer of funds.
14.4 ArtULTRA is entitled to withhold your sales proceeds for any given sale if there is, or in ArtULTRA’s reasonable opinion there is likely to be, a dispute with you or a dispute between you and the Purchaser, until such dispute is resolved to ArtULTRA’s reasonable satisfaction.
