Making an Offer this way on fine art is a much easier, faster, and smarter way to save the time and money to get what you want, when you want.

  • Where does it come from?

Before money systems were introduced, humans trading inside Africa negotiated between each other as a way of life to get the goods they needed to survive and profit.

  • Does it exist today?

Yes!  In many places inside Africa today still, in addition to other places around the world, making offers on products or services is the expected way to make a formal transaction.  In America, it's been popularized by online websites like E-Bay and recent Television shows like "Shark Tank" and "Deal or No Deal."
