MAC Art Galleries charges $1.00 per month per piece of artwork that is in your gallery. We have a 20 piece minimum requirement. For example: if you have 25 pieces in your gallery, you will be charged a monthly fee of $25 per month. We have a maximum allowance of up to 43 pieces in one gallery.
Gallery Setup Fee
MAC Art Galleries charges a one-time $75 set up fee. The set-up fee includes the cost of a specialist’s design of your virtual gallery, placement and sizing of images, installation on woo-commerce, and creation of links to our shipping/payment processing features. You may choose to purchase as many galleries as you wish.
E-Commerce Only Set-up. If you choose to exclude the walkthrough virtual gallery the set-up fee is $40 and you will only have a grid-view of your work on our website with a link for purchase to the e-commerce store. No virtual gallery will be included.
MAC Art Galleries charges a 25% commission for each piece that you sell. There is no charge to replace a sold image with a new piece.
