Step by Step
At Fingerprints, we want to give you a platform to present your products to a wide range of clients. For this purpose we offer sales areas for rent. All products in our shop will be displayed in the product catalogue on this website as well. It is not possible to sell directly via this internet platform but we are happy to refer to your details so that clients can get in contact with you directly.
Please take a little time to inform yourself about the whole procedure.
We have assembled an overview of the essential steps here.
- Register to become a member of the Fingerprints-Community
You will get access to the forms for your profile and the product description.
- Submit a product description
Fill in the form carefully and make use of the advices provided. This text will be used in form and content for the presentation of your products in the shop and on the website. You will get an arrival notice automatically.
- Processing your application
As soon as your product description comes in, we will check it for completeness, availability of your scheduled term and the compliance with our product guidelines. You will get a binding acceptance or denial of your product within 3 working days.
You will receive an agreement via email. As soon as the signed agreement and the rent for the sales area has arrived we will put your product on the website. You are now able to create an artist account as well so you can give customers some information about yourself and your work.
Your products must be delivered to the shop at the beginning of your rental term at the latest. If you want to post the products, please make sure to send them in due time. If your package arrives later, we can't refund your rental fee partially. If your products do not arrive even after
1 week, we will reserve the right to use the sales area differently. If the products don't meet our standards in quality or clearly differ from the product description, we will reserve the right to terminate the agreement. In this case we will charge 50% of the rent as handling fee and will send back the products, not prepaid.
- Label and Decoration
In principle, you can fill your sales area with as many products as you like. You can mix different types of products on one area as long as we have a binding agreement for all of them. We will produce labels for every type of product, based on your description, and will make sure to present them in an appealing fashion.
- Sales Notification and Storage
Obviously we can't give you a sales guarantee, but as soon as a product is sold, you will get a notification via email. We can store your surplus to guarantee an uninterrupted display of your products during your rental term. Or you can bring new products in by yourself.
Accounting and Payment
After your rental term, you will get a detailed statement of all costs and income generated in our shop. Your money will be transferred to your bank account.
- Return and Extension
One rent season is at least two month long. If there is no notification by the 15th of the 2nd month the rental term will get extended for another month automatically. A further extension with the same product assortment is not possible.
Leftover products must be picked up within 14 days after the rental term. If not, we will send them back not prepaid. If the sales area is not booked by a different artist you can extend your rental term for another month under the same conditions.
Naturally you have the option to keep your sales area for the following rent season. In that case we need your new product descriptions 1 month in advance of the new season so we can make a new agreement with you in time.
We hope this overview gives you all the information you need at this point. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to help you.
