Information On Shipping For Sellers

Shipping To A Buyer

Upon completion of an auction the seller will be notified by e-mail as to whether an artwork has sold or not. If the artwork has sold and it is in the seller's possession then Ocula Black will initiate the following process:

The seller will receive an email when full payment has been made by the buyer to Ocula Black.

Following this a custom box will be made and dispatched to your specified pick up address.

You should expect the box to arrive at lease within 5 working days of receiving the email.

The email the seller received from Ocula Black contains a link. Click on this link when the artwork has been packed into the box as per the simple instructions located inside the box.

Clicking on the link will activate a pick-up request and you can expect carriers to collect the artwork within 2 working days.

Confirmation Of Delivery To The Seller

When the artwork is delivered to the buyer Ocula Black will send the seller an e-mail to confirm delivery.
