A blocking period of funds is set up for all sellers, this period is mandatory and allows our team to carry out the necessary checks on the transactions issued to limit the risk of fraud and money laundering. During this period, Artiista reserves the right to request proof of identity from the person carrying out the transaction (KYC). The withdrawal period is established according to the level of the seller. For more information on seller levels and hold deadlines, see the Seller Levels page.
We do not impose a minimum amount to be able to withdraw the earnings, however, for the transaction to be possible, it must be equal to or greater than 1€.
Artiista takes a commission on each sale for its activity of connecting sellers and buyers. The amount of this commission is defined according to the level of each seller and cannot exceed 15€ per transaction. For more information on seller levels and commissions applied, see the Seller Levels page.
The prices displayed on Artiista exclude taxes and bank charges. The fees applied are calculated according to the status of sellers, buyers, and their respective countries. The net amount to be paid, as well as the detail of the commissions, are indicated on the order page before proceeding to the payment.
VAT between taxable sellers and buyers can be recovered. Orders placed with individual sellers are not subject to VAT, this will not be deducted as it is not charged by the seller.

More information on disputes can be found by consulting article 13 of our Terms and Conditions.
If you have a problem with an order, on the "order progress" page, click on the help icon (exclamation mark) and then select the desired option. Depending on the progress of the order, different options are available.
The evaluation phase of an order is important. It allows the payment of earnings to the seller and the closing of the order.

Billing
Professional sellers have an obligation to issue an invoice when selling their microjobs on the platform while private sellers, who are not authorized to issue them, must issue a payment receipt so that buyers can justify their expense. Invoices, like receipts, are automatically generated on behalf of the seller for each sale made.

Payment receipts and invoices can be downloaded from the "my orders" and "my sales" pages. A payment receipt is generated when the order is paid, while the invoice is generated once the order is closed.
Once the microjob has been delivered and the order has been closed, the invoice is available for download on the "my orders" page.

Case 1: the seller is an individual.
An individual seller does not have the right to generate an invoice but can sell his services on our platform. The edited document is not an invoice but a receipt and does not include VAT.

Case 2: The seller is a professional.
The edited document is an invoice and includes all legal notices.

IMPORTANT: The documents generated are available in two languages, that of the seller and that of the buyer if they are different to facilitate their understanding and use. We generate a document that has two invoices in it. One invoice is on behalf and in the name of the seller so that the buyer can justify his expenses and the seller can declare his sales. The second invoice is generated for the commissions applied to each sale by Artiista as well as for bank charges. Therefore, there are two invoices per order.
Any income generated by the sale of services through the Artiista site must be declared to the competent authorities. This obligation applies to both professional sellers and individuals. The tax declarations must be made in accordance with the law in force and the seller is held responsible for the payment of direct and indirect taxes applied to him depending on his country of residence.

- Individual occasional sellers must declare any profit made on their tax return by filling the category corresponding to non-commercial profits.

To find out more about the procedures to follow, we invite you to consult the page made available by the tax authorities in France as well as the Explanatory PDF if you live in France.

The URSAAF site informs you about social contributions that can be applied to your income generated on Artiista for french sellers.

- Professional sellers are required to include any profit made in their balance sheet.
Artiista cannot be held responsible in the event of a breach of tax obligations on the part of the sellers and disclaims any responsibility for non-declaration of the income they would have achieved.
