What You Can Find Out Here
A site where you have about the same flexibility to buy and sell Chinese and Asian art in the same way you would with any dealer, working full or part-time in a private transaction.
A willing buyer and a willing seller is all that is needed here. This not eBay.

More Details: "Site Rules & Terms"
Who Can buy on the site?
Pretty Much anyone
Anyone can buy or bid on the site who is over the age 18.. All users must register to Buy or place a bid.
In most states and countries a person under the age of 18 cannot enter into a purchase agreement, so we draw the line there. If you’re under 18, have an adult place the buy order or bid on your behalf.
you Will Need a payment method
Be sure to have a preferred method of payment in mind when opening an account.
Non-Payment Rules: Failure to pay for any purchase invoice within three days of being bought or won in an auction, will result in account closure after three additional days. Unless other arrangements have been made with the seller. This is NOT eBay, so please do not bid or buy any item unless you’re committed to buy and pay immediately.
Who Can Sell on this site?
Pretty Much Anyone BUT!
Anyone owning Chinese or Asian art can sell on this site, provided it is not posted as something it is not. In other words, modern fakes and copies cannot be posted here. We will remove them.
If you're a dealer
You can create your own store profile. Let buyers know about you and your business. You can include phone numbers, email addresses, links to your own site, address, phone numbers etc.
If you're not a dealer
You can sell on the site but will have to provide accurate information about the object. It must be authentic, dated accurately and you will need to list things with all pertinent information.
What kind of payments can I accept?
More types are better than fewer
You can accept pretty much anything: Credit Cards, PayPal, Checks, Wire Transfers, Cash, Money Orders, Kruggerands , or even a herd of goats.

Reducing the Chances

We also ask that buyer’s ask questions to clarify any concerns before entering a transaction.
If there is a problem-Communicate
In the event of an issue, the first step is for the seller and buyer to try and resolve the problem amicably as quickly as possible.
