We've established several safeguards to mitigate that risk. Once an artist and wall owner have been "matched" for a project, Beautify collects a non-refundable design fee from the wall owner to begin the design phase. The fee is a portion of the total budget, and rolls into the project budget once final design has been agreed upon.
If the wall owner backs out, the artist gets paid out the design fee minus Beautify’s commission. We also limit the number of renderings a wall owner may request, with additional renderings incurring additional fees.
All of this is mutually agreed upon and contractually sealed prior to engagement.
