e-Commerce Launch for KiptonART Demonstrates Commitment and Financial Support for Artists

(New York, NY - November 6, 2009) - KiptonART is pleased to announce revolutionary e-Commerce capabilities are now active allowing art buyers to interact directly with KiptonART artists online.   After logging into KiptonART's secure online gallery, art buyers and gallery owners can browse hundreds of active emerging artists.  By clicking on the "Buy/Request" button, one can inquire with artists to verify if works are available for purchase and find out the costs of direct shipping.  After confirmation from the artist, art buyers are prompted to pay online via credit card where the shipping details of the art buyer will be sent directly to KiptonART artists. Payment and loan requests are tracked inside the art buyer and artist secure account profiles.  Art buyers who prefer to have art works loaned for approval can request directly from artists online or speak directly to a KiptonART representative.  "Our technology allows art buyers direct access to our artists and our concept is revolutionary to breaking down the barriers of connecting artists to high net worth individuals."  Our mission is Giving Artists Access and the latest e-Commerce initiative is another step forward demonstrating our commitment to support emerging artists," says Kipton Cronkite, Founder of KiptonART.   "Now that KiptonART artists can interact directly with art buyers means more sales opportunities and ways for artists to create a platform to support themselves financially during this tough economic environment."  Read the full press release here!
