Frequently asked questions
How will I know when my order will be delivered?
You can check the estimated dispatch date and which country the artwork will be shipped from on the artwork listing under the 'Shipping' heading or in your order confirmation email.
Which courier will be used for shipping?
As all artists on Artfinder are responsible for order fulfilment and shipping, we encourage you to speak directly with them using our messaging system to see which courier will be used and to share your courier preference, if any, with the artist.
How can I track my order?
Tracking details of the courier and estimated delivery date will be provided to you as part of the delivery process via email. You will be able to track your shipment on the courier's track&trace page.
Will my order be delayed due to COVID-19?
Although most deliveries are continuing unaffected, some couriers may experience temporary delays.
What should I do if my parcel is delayed?
Please get in touch with the artist as we find that in most cases speaking directly with them is the best and fastest way to get answers about an artworks whereabouts. Should you not hear back from the artist, please get in touch with our Support Team at email@example.com and we would be happy to offer further assistance.
I am self-isolating, what should I do with my delivery?
If you or someone in your household are self-isolating and unable to receive the delivery, we kindly ask you to get in touch with your courier to request contactless delivery (possible with most couriers) or reschedule delivery after the isolation period has ended.
After my order is placed, can I change my shipping address due to COVID-19?
As soon as you place your order, our artists usually start working on it right away. Please get in touch with the artist via the messaging system or with our Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Is it safe to receive packages/ deliveries during the COVID-19 outbreak?
The World Health Organisation states that it is safe to handle parcels. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low. Most couriers are (temporarily) offering a no signature service or contactless delivery.
