Frequently Asked Dealer Questions

Important Things to Know about being a Premier Dealer Member
go to top
Q: What is the definition of a Premier Dealer, and what standards have you set?
A: This refers to a dealer in paintings, sculptures, illustrations, or signed original printed materials.  A Premier Dealer must operate as an art dealer in a professional and public venue, and adhere to all domestic and international laws regarding artworks. In addition, a Premier Dealer buys and sells artworks on a disclosed basis, revealing all details necessary for a buyer or seller to make an informed decision, and/or can be endorsed or verified to AskART by either: the artist in whose work the dealer might specialize, or at least one established member of the Dealer Associations that we have listed, or a recognized executive or staff member from one of the museums or auction houses that we acknowledge.

(Please Note: AskART reserves the right to remove dealers from the site without notice if a review suggests that they did not or do not comply with the guidelines set forth herein. Dealers may also be removed for other reasons which AskART might deem appropriate, such as violating what we consider either good faith or ethical business standards.)

Q: Does AskART require my gallery to sign a contract?
A: No. Premier Dealers are month to month, and may cancel at any time.
Q: If I need more artists and ads, how can I upgrade to a higher Premier Dealer level in the future?
A: At any time you may upgrade your account, and we will automatically pro-rate for the upgrade.
Q: If, for example, I sign up for a Premier B account, I see I am entitled to “40 ads” How do you define an "ad"?
A: A “For Sale” ad is counted as one ad. A “Wanted” ad is counted as one ad. You may mix and match as you wish.

Q: Are Subscriber Members and/or Premier Dealers limited to a certain number of "logins" per month?
A: Subscribers are allowed unlimited access unless the activity level reaches our most active list, in which case we may notify you to negotiate more appropriate invoicing, or at the sole discretion of AskART, deny further Subscriber membership privileges.
Q: May more than one person use my password as a subscriber?
A: No, with exceptions. Access is intended for the subscriber's use only, or an employee conducting research for him or her. We will be monitoring for unusual usage and/or simultaneous logins and may cancel subscriptions and/or dealer registrations if bad faith has been determined. Please note: Premier Dealers should be especially protective of their username and password, as they will be the same for both your auction record access and registration log in (for adding artists and ads, and editing general gallery information).
