Frequently Asked Questions

No. If the reserve price is not met, the artist is not required to sell the item, even to the highest bidder.

Shipping fee shall be paid by buyer but the artist shall shoulder it first to ship the artwork. Fee will be reimbursed along with the payment for the artwork.


Your starting or opening bid is the suggested minimum bid for an auction artwork.

The amount a bid increases is known as the bid increment. Each artwork has their own bid increments set by the artists. You can bid by the next available increment. When someone outbids you, you will receive an email. You can then return to the auction at Pahiyas Art to place a higher bid to stay in the lead.

Ex. Starting bid is Php1000 and bid increment is set at Php 100. The bidder must bid by 1100, next by 1200, 1300, etc.

A reserve price is a minimum price that an artist would be willing to accept from a buyer. In an auction, the artist is not typically required to disclose the reserve price to potential buyers. If the reserve price is not met, the artist is not required to sell the item, even to the highest bidder. The message “Reserve price has not been met” is shown in the artwork page.

It the artist offers a Buy Now option, you can purchase that artwork immediately at a price set by the artist. It is shown in the artwork page along with the price.
