What can I pay with?

The site uses PayPal and Shopify Payments services as a payment process.
Furthermore, the credit cards accepted by both services are:

Is the site safe?

Yes. You will pay through PayPal and Shopify Payments, the leading online payment method solutions.
I will never see your credit card number and your bank details; PayPal and Shopify Payments will simply notify me of the payment so that we can fulfill your orders later.

Do I need an account to be able to make the payment? No. You can pay without needing a PayPal account and you can pay as a site guest without having to register. Registration is recommended to save data and make faster purchases in the future.

Split Payments for Original Paintings

Can I pay for an original work in installments?

Since Art is Love, I will be happy to help you or arrange for requests for split payments, in installments. 
You can ask for information about the Fractional payment, contacting me without obligation.
Here is some brief information on the installment payment policy:

  • The option Fractional payment is applied for original paintings worth € 150 or more. Upon acceptance of payment, with a deposit equal to half of the total amount, the total must be paid within 2 (two) months. Two interests as marked on the site.
  • Installment payments will NOT be refunded, whether they are completed or not. In case of "change of mind", the deposit already paid will be considered compensation for the artist due to the commitment in having booked the painting (unique and original piece), and therefore made unavailable for other buyers at that juncture. Thanks for understanding!
  • IMPORTANT: The original painting will be shipped upon full payment for it.

By purchasing with the option Fractional Payment you agree to the above policy of installment payments, indicated here. Thank you!
