I'm Having Trouble Paying By Credit Card/PayPal. What Do I Do?
Credit Card Issues
If your credit card is being declined during purchase, please try our troubleshooting tips below. If you still experience problems, we advise that you contact your bank or credit card provider and ask for their assistance.
Double-check the information you entered during checkout:
• Did your billing address change recently?
• Did you enter the correct CVV code?
• Did you get a new card with a new expiration date?
About the CVV Code
If using a credit card to purchase a work, you will be asked for the CVV code (i.e. Card Verification Value code). On most credit cards (including Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards), the CVV is a three-digit number printed to the right of the signature space on the back of the card. On American Express cards, it is the four-digit code located on the front of the card.
Review your bank’s fraud-alert policies.
Your bank may flag any suspicious activity on your account which may include first-time orders or high-value purchases (regardless of the card’s available funds)—especially those made online. Your bank may require you to contact them and authorize the purchase before allowing you to complete the transaction.
Review your bank’s daily withdrawal limit.
Most banks have limits on how much you can charge on your card in a single day. If you reach this limit, your bank may block your account from any further activity for the day regardless of available funds in the account.
How Do I Remove Items From My Shopping Cart?
Items in your Shopping Cart will remain there unless they are removed, or until you complete the checkout process. To remove items you don't want to purchase, do the following:
Step 1 – Click the Shopping Cart icon from the Leonardo Moleiro Art main menu to view your shopping cart.
Step 2 – Click the Remove link underneath the artwork’s title.
Do I Need To Create An Account To Purchase?
Not necessarily, but we encourage you to do so because then you'll be able to track your purchases.

What's The Difference Between Buying Limited Edition Vs. Open Edition Prints?
About limited edition prints
As the name suggests, only a limited number of prints will be made available for purchase. For example, if the artist is selling a limited run of 25 prints, once those 25 prints have sold, that limited edition will no longer be available to purchase. The exclusive nature of a limited edition print effectively raises its value and, therefore, its price.
About open edition prints
Unlike limited edition prints, open edition prints may be endlessly reproduced. Because there's no limit to the number of prints that can be made, an open edition print is priced lower than a limited edition print.
What Types Of Open Edition Prints And Frames Are Available?
See below for descriptions of the types of Open Edition prints (and optional frames) available for purchase through Leonardo Moleiro Art.
Fine Art print frames have a width of 1 3/4” and are made of 100% real wood with a matte black or matte white enamel finish. Shatterproof plexiglass is used for safe delivery and improved UV protection. Framed prints are final sale items.
Artwork is printed on canvas stretched side to side and wrapped around four edges on a stretcher frame. To protect the print from scratches and sunlight, each canvas is coated with a UV protective layer designed specifically for our canvas and ink.
Framed canvas prints come with a black wrap for a seamless look. They are gallery wrapped on 1.25” deep stretcher bars made of 100% renewable kiln-dried, knot-free, finger-jointed wood.
What Payment Methods Do You Accept?
Leonardo Moleiro Art accepts the following payment methods:
• American Express
• Bank Wire Transfer (Contact by email email@example.com for assistance with bank wire transfers)
Will I Be Charged Taxes Or Customs Fees?
In some cases, collectors will pay taxes and customs fees on artwork they purchase, depending on their country of residence as well as the country the artwork is shipping from. See below for more information.
If your artwork is being shipped to California, a 9.0% sales tax will be added to your total. No sales tax is added in all other cases. A breakdown of all costs, including shipping fees and any applicable taxes, will be visible on your shopping cart page prior to submitting your payment information.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
For original artwork and limited edition prints, VAT (value added tax) fees will be included in your online checkout process.
For prints, VAT fees are not included during the online checkout process. The buyer will receive a separate invoice from the courier when the print is delivered.
In addition to shipping charges, the buyer will also be responsible for paying international customs fees, determined by the country the artwork is being shipped to. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to making a purchase.
Where Does Artwork Ship From?
If you purchase an original work or limited edition print from Leonardo Moleiro Art, the work will be delivered straight from the artist’s studio to your specified shipping address.
If you purchase an open edition print, it will be printed and shipped by Leonardo Moleiro Art's printers, located in the United States.
How Do I Reserve Artwork?
If there's a specific work you'd like to buy but you may require more time to complete the purchase, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Artwork Reservation Request" in the subject line and include the following information:
• Reason for requiring reservation
• Title of artwork you'd like to reserve
• Artist name
• Your contact telephone number
Please know that the reservation process should ONLY be used if you are already committed to purchasing the work. Out of respect for our artists, we don't allow collectors to reserve artwork if they're still in the decision stage about purchasing.

Who Pays For Return Shipping Costs?
We examine all returns on a case-by-case basis in order to determine who is responsible for paying all costs (shipping and customs) required to deliver the artwork back to the artist. Generally, if we determine that the artwork was accurately described on our site (in terms of size, materials used, weight, etc.) and the collector is returning it as a result of buyers remorse, then the collector is held responsible for return costs.
If we conclude that the artist misrepresented the work (either in the photograph or in the description), failed to disclose important information about the work, or if the artwork was damaged as a result of poor packaging, the collector will not be responsible for shipping costs.
