We ask you to provide, where possible:

  • Photographic evidence of damage to the packaging, in case we need to recover costs from the carrier;
  • Photographic evidence showing that what you received differs materially from what was published in Gallery 247 by the artist
  • The Gallery 247 national identity number that is affixed to the work (does not apply to jewellery and fabrics)
  • Description of the damaged work, or a Gallery 247 tax invoice, or the Gallery 247 tax invoice number.  These will enable us to accurately identify the item/s in question.
  • Details of when the item was delivered to you, such as date and delivery note number;
  • Photographic evidence of damage to the item you have purchased;
  • Description of the damage.

 

Gallery 247’s rights

Gallery 247 do not stock any items - all works of art are shipped by the artist concerned to directly to you, either personally by the artist or using professional and insured carriers.

All artists who sell on line through Gallery 247 agree to abide by these money-back guarantee provisions.  For your protection, money you have paid is held by Gallery 247 in trust until the money back period has expired.  When you notify us of a return, we do not release payment to the artist concerned until satisfactory resolution of your particular claim.

Gallery 247 will only refund money into the account from which the purchase was originally made.  We will notify you by email that the refund has been made.

In the unlikely event that you are not fully satisfied, contact us, setting out the details of your complaint, and we endeavour to mediate on your behalf.

Whilst Gallery 247 will endeavour to resolve any dispute arising between you and the artist who created the work you have purchased on line, we have no obligation to actually settle that dispute if it continues.  Gallery 247 may recommend that you seek resolution through other means.
