About Us

     Commish Artify! is an online marketplace and community focused on visual art. Clients and artists can register free and premium accounts. The site has features that offer a convenient way to make transactions. Unlike other e-commerce sites, CA! has no service fees on every client-artist transaction. Meaning to say, there’s no extra charge on paying a service here, and artists keep 100% of the hard-earned commission. We know how important artist’s earnings are, and taking a chunk from commissions would be a crime, so to speak. Commish Artify! is a celebration of art, and it should be fun, right?


What’s with the Name and Logo?

logoringThe symbolism is actually very straightforward. The grey area or ring represents clients while the colored splatter design refers to artists. Get the idea? As for the name, the terms commish and artify are slang words for the following words:

Commish
The tip paid to a contractor, agent, official, short for “commission”
Artify
Improve the environment and life with and through art; expand experience and enrich the world through artistic actions

source: Urban Dictionary

So, basically, it’s our creative way of saying “commission an artist”.

Listing Packages and Membership

Artists can setup free and paid commish listings with additional options such as featured listings, image uploads and paid category search position. Artists can come back anytime and upgrade an existing listing with new features as required.

Listings will not go live until payment has been received (unless it’s a free listing). This gives the artist a time to check, modify and preview the listing before payment.

Categorization of listings are made simple and direct. Our marketplace has 3 main categories, namely TRADITIONAL ART, DIGITAL ART, and MIXED MEDIA ART. We made this straight and simple. There’s a keyword option where an artist can supply more detailed classification of a particular listing.

Moreover, there’s a job board section where members can be given a VIP access to view, post, and manage job ads. If you’re someone looking for a creative team or a comic artist who needs a writer, then this is the perfect place for you (Note: Only premium users are granted to use this part of the site).

Who are the members?

You may be an illustrator, an art collector, a painter, a comics artist, a graphic novel writer, an animator, a doodler, or even a fan… whoever you are, anyone can join this site so long as you love art! (see our Terms of Service here). And by the way, we call our members “COMMISHANTS”… as in a Colony Of coMMISH Art aNTS! Epic!

Minimum Price at $15

We, here at Commish Artify!, promote the importance and value of art. So, we encourage all users to set a price not lower than $15 per piece. Art is not cheap, and neither is an artist’s talent. Let’s not devalue our craft. Any listings below the set minimum price are subject for review and deletion without prior notice.

Payments and Workflow

Currently, the only available mode of payment is via Paypal. A job cannot be initiated unless upfront payment is made. All deposits will go straight to the artist’s Paypal account. Take note that the artist must first provide his/her Paypal address to the client because this will be asked during payment.

CA! comes with a built in workflow system allowing clients and artists to communicate quickly and easily. When the job is done, clients can rate and post a review, thereby defining the credibility of the artist. Good rating means beneficial and good exposure for artists especially on star-rating searches.

Important: Both artists and clients are responsible for commish services being offered and availed here in CA!.

Clients: Any transaction made through CA! is between you and the artist. Please do note that Commish Artify! does not own or possess any artworks an artist lists. So, if you wish to inquire on a particular commish service, you may contact the artist directly.

Artists: For smooth transaction, please describe the commish services you are offering clearly. You can post your own terms of service such as payment set-up, use of artwork, genre, etc. And make sure to follow CA!’s Upload Guidelines. Thanks! :)

User Feedback and Profile Rating System

Clients can leave feedback for the artist and a satisfactory rating for the jobs they have availed. Once a client marks a job as complete, they have the opportunity at anytime to leave a feedback and a rating. Clients can only leave one feedback and rating for each job paid, creating a more accurate and fair feedback rating system.
