I’m having some issues making credit card payments

If your credit card is being declined during your purchase, refer to the troubleshooting tips below. If you still experience problems, we recommend that you contact your bank and ask for assistance.

  • Did you enter the correct PIN code?
  • Did you enter the correct CVV code?
  • Did you get a new card with a new expiration date?

About the CVV Code
If using a credit card to make a purchase a work, you will be asked for the CVV code (i.e. Card Verification Value code). On most credit cards (including Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards), the CVV is a three-digit number printed to the right of the signature space on the back of the card. On American Express cards, it is the four-digit code located on the front of the card.

Review your bank’s fraud-alert policies

Your bank may flag any suspicious activity on your account which may include first-time orders or high-value purchases (regardless of the card’s available funds)—especially those made online. Your bank may require you to contact them and authorize the purchase before allowing you to complete the transaction.

PayPal Issues

PayPal has various security measures in place to protect their users from fraudulent activity. For this reason, PayPal may occasionally prohibit a buyer from submitting payment. If you’re experiencing issues using your PayPal account, please contact PayPal directly for assistance, or visit their website for troubleshooting information.

Alternatively, you may choose a different payment method. If you’d like assistance email

Depending on where you reside, artwork you purchase can be subject to additional fees. See below for more information.

Value Added Tax (VAT)

Customs Charges

Along with shipping charges customers will be responsible for paying for international customs fees.  Fees will be dependent on the shipping country, so it’s recommended that you refer to your local customs office before processing your order.

Export Clearance Permit

Each piece of artwork leaving Nigeria requires a government clearance permit which is approximately 10% of the site listed cost of the artwork.  Payment of this is the customers responsibility and will be added at checkout once the shipping address has been inputted.

How can I ensure the artworks are authentic?

Most artworks will feature signatures on the works that will be visible when viewing them online.  Some artists also choose to sign their works on the back of the piece or underneath.
