"Credit card charges" - when you buy something for $100 at, say, Bloomingdales, the store has to pay the credit card company a fee. When you sell a piece of art through this website, that fee will be deducted from your sale. I'm unclear on what % credit card companies are charging these days, and every company is not the same. Amex for one, is higher, which is why lots of vendors don't accept them.

Still, it is sure to be less than a gallery charges.

Trouble is buyers have to find your work on the site.
