    What about delivery?

    The buyer can decide to leave with the canvas on the spot or to have it delivered. When the first option is selected, the buyer and the exhibitor receive an email confirmation of the sale with an unique code. The buyer then comes to the cash register and an employee of the establishment will confirm the code. The buyer can then leave with the artpiece in hands.
