The Benefits of Selling on Ocula Black

Immediate Market Access

Ocula Black runs continuous and multiple auctions that are open all the time. Sellers can choose when they want to sell not when it fits in with someone else’s business timetable. Our private sales connections are extensive and active.

Very Low Selling Commission

Our selling commission rate is the most competitive. Depending on the value of the artwork consigned this can range from no more than 5% (+ gst if applicable) to no selling commission at all.

Retain Possession Unless Sold

Because we offer our auctions online, in many cases the seller can retain possession of their artwork they are selling until it is sold. We do recommend that artworks of significant value be sent to our gallery so they can be viewed.

Longer Auctions Means More Buyers

Ocula Black run over 7 to 10 days. This means that a wider range of buyers have the opportunity to bid.

Reporting Features That Follow Buyer Interest

Ocula Black has powerful tools that bring more buyers to the artwork you're selling. This is achieved through functions such as Follow Artist which reports to the buyer when an artwork is offered for sale by an artist that they have selected to be alerted to. Or Add To Watchlist which follows an artwork in an auction they are interested in.
