1. Huge Selection

Ebay is unencumbered by the physical infrastructure of the traditional gallery or auction house. On eBay there is much greater selection of  art sellers than in any art gallery. Thus buyers can discover new art and  build their collection from the comfort of their own homes.  In spite the huge selection on eBay it is actually rather simple to search for artworks.

2. Greater Value for Money

Commissions on eBay are significantly lower and the whole business of buying art is much cheaper and more accessible. Traditional art galleries add on their own mark-up, and often charge as much as 50% from the revenue. Therefore the same painting that is sold for 100 on eBay could be sold in an art gallery for 200.

8. Transparency


Prices on eBay are more transparent than traditional art galleries. In a traditional gallery, it is not always clear how the prices are set and how they stand in comparison to other art sellers and/or similar artworks. Online, it is easy to compare the price setting with that of other artists and even between galleries.
