When do I have to pay for a commission?

When you request a Commission offered by an artist you will need to have the appropriate number of deviantART Points available; however, payment will not be deducted from your balance until the artist has accepted the commission request.

When a buyer requests to purchase a commission offered by an artist, both receive a Correspondence message in their Message Centres. The artist can then review and accept or decline the purchase request.
