As you know, the client is responsible for paying delivery costs, and you must set them when you add the work on Artsper.
Many studies have shown that these costs are one of the main reasons for abandoned shopping carts. This is a trend that has been noticed across the e-commerce sector, no matter what product is being sold.
It is now common practice among e-commerce platforms to provide free or very low shipping costs. More and more, consumers expect not to have to pay for delivery. It is up to us to guide you so that you can align yourself more closely to consumer habits and expectations and boost your sales.
We recommend charges that are more likely to be accepted. You are free to apply them or put your own.
If the insert turns red, it means that we believe that the fees are "too" high and will have less chance of being accepted by the customer. However, you will not be blocked when putting the work online.
We therefore recommend that you set delivery costs as low as possible, without it having a detrimental effect on your packaging or choice of carrier. In the case of very expensive artworks, we recommend that you offer to pay for all, or part of, the shipping costs.
We'd like point out that it is often better to succeed in selling a work even with a smaller profit margin than to not sell it at all. Low delivery costs will help you sell more works and expand you network of collectors.
NB: You are responsible for your costs and your deliveries. Artsper cannot bear any difference between the prices displayed and the actual prices.
