Note: If you’re a partner based in one of these countries, adding your VAT registration number to CMS allows you to use Buy Now, Make Offer, and Make Offer in Inquiries to sell your works to payment-verified collectors.
This guide will show you how to add your VAT registration number to Artsy CMS, a requirement for using secure checkout selling options.
After you've added your VAT number, Artsy will approve for Buy Now and Make Offer selling options when they become available in your area (if they aren’t already). This generally takes a business day.
To add your VAT status to CMS, go to your account settings under the Account tab.
Click the “Edit” button on the upper right of the gallery information section of the page.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll be asked about your VAT status. Select the answer that applies best to you.
If you click “Yes” or “Yes, but I am exempt from collecting VAT,” you’ll be asked to provide your VAT number.
Once you’re done, click “Save Changes.”
You can only use Buy Now, Make Offer, and Make Offer in Inquiries if you select "Yes" or "Yes, but I am exempt from collecting VAT" and you add your registration number.
