Answers

  1. How are the qualities of your paintings?
    All of our oil paintings are 100% hand painted on canvas, not canvas transfers or prints. Our paintings are meticulously painted by skilled and experienced artists using only top quality oil paints on premium quality canvas. Our goal is to serve our customers with guarantee of being 100% satisfied with purchases or returning for full refunds. If you do not like your ordered artworks, no matter for what reasons, you can always return back to us for refunds.

  2. Do you have individual artist's profile?
    Most of our artworks are from unknown artists - we do not have artist's information. Our collections are mainly for decoration purposes - our collecting criteria mainly bases on whether WE think those artworks are good not (in our humble opinion). You can imagine, with so low prices, it is impossible to get well-known artists' artworks, so who painted what is not so big a concern for us. If your main purpose to buy artworks is for price appreciation, you probably should try other places like
    Sell-Arts Marketplace.

    Most of our artworks are signed by individual artists; some of them do not have signatures. Even for signed artworks, we do not have certificates of authenticity since certificates add too much extra costs.

  3. I am living in Greater Houston area, can I go to see your paintings personally before I buy them?
    Of course you can. We are home-based business and located in Pearland (Metropolitan Houston), Texas. Greater Houston area customers are welcome to come and see our artworks with appointments, if you want to see them first before you buy them; or if you want to pick up your orders by yourself. Please
    contact us first and schedule a time to come.

  4. Why can you offer artworks at so low prices?
    There are three main reasons:
    • We are an online gallery and do not need to rent expensive physical store, we can pass the saving costs to our customers. A conventional brick gallery carries lots of over charge such as renting, utility etc , they have to pass those charges to customers to cover their costs.
    • We are a big online gallery, usually we can order large number (sometime over hundreds) of artworks from same studios or artists, thus can persuade them to give us competitive prices.
    • We have long term cooperative relationships with some studios or artists; they can give us favorable prices.

    We want our customers to feel safe and secure in doing business with BeyondDream Art. We have implemented a number of measures to ensure that your transactions run smoothly and that your privacy is protected.
    • 256-bit SSL certificate : our web server is secured with Godaddy's 256-bit SSL certificate (https, SSL details from Wikipedia ) throughout our whole web site. All your transaction information (including payment and personal information, searching history) will be encrypted when they are transmitted over the internet, to ensure that your privacy information is safe from hackers or other malicious parties.

    • We DO NOT store customers' credit card information on our own server.

Even in the unlikely event that our server is compromised by hackers, you do not need to worry about your credit card data loss since we do not have them on our server at all! Not too many big online retailers can have this kind of guarantee: since not saving customers' credit card information limits retailers' flexibility in case of modifying the charge. But we’d rather sacrifice our own flexibilities to ensure our customers' safety.
