HOW DOES AUCTION WORK?
Paintings are always available
at the GALLERY PRICE, whether or not there is an auction underway,
except those paintings included in the auction which will be
awarded to the highest bidder.
Initially, paintings up for
auction will start at the MINIMUM BID PRICE (Non-Profits would
get 25%.), which is 50% of the GALLERY PRICE.
All PROFITS generated above
the MINIMUM BID PRICE will be given to the sponsoring organization.
The MINIMUM BID PRICE of a
painting pays the sponsor 10% of the bid, pays the artist for
the painting, covers the costs of secure shipping and maintaining
Art for Cause Now's website and the postings on eBay.
Art For Cause Now will be
as the platform to auction the paintings. Payments are made through
Once an auction has been completed, the winners of each painting
will by requested to pay PAYPAL within a certain amount of time. Once
payment is made, painting will be sent to bidder. All PROFITS
of a painting would be sent to the Sponsor though PAYPAL.
For a sponsoring organization
to be considered by Art For Cause Now, they must have a large
email base and / or presence in social media, vital to the success
of an auction. Having more people involved in an auction will
drive more competition on bidding which will lead to more income
for a sponsoring organization. Art for Cause Now will participate
in the promotion by collaborating with the sponsor, providing
any promotional materials and mail service required to reach
the maximum number of potential bidders.
