      An Offline Bank Transfer Payment or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is a local electronic exchange or money transfer, where the buyer deposits funds into a dedicated account. This is a safe payment alternative to customers who choose not to pay online via credit card. Global Collect is the payment processor that handles bank transfer payments for AllPosters Customers.

      There are three steps for a payment by Offline Bank Transfer:
      1) You will be sent a confirmation email with all of the information you will need to complete the process.
      2) Use the information provided to initiate a bank transfer. The process of conducting a transfer varies per bank, so check with a representative at your bank for instructions.
      3) Instruct your bank to transfer funds to Allposters, and you're done. Once your payment has been processed, we will ship your order and send you a notification email with shipment information.

      Important: You must include your reference number on your bank's transfer form for us to process your payment. If there's not enough room for the entire number in the form's notes or reference number field, enter it in the name field after or instead of your name. The reference number is located on the informational form generated on the confirmation page and that you received in the e-mail confirmation.

Top Questions from 1st Time Visitors

What's the difference between a Poster and an Art Print?
Typically, the art print is printed on a higher grade of paper so it is thicker and often provides more texture.

Why are some Art Prints more expensive than others?
Most of the more expensive Art Prints, if they are not oversized, may be one or a combination of the following:

  • Signed by the artist-The artist's signature appears on the print.
  • Limited edition-The publisher or artist has released a limited amount of each print.
  • Serigraph- An Art Print that is printed through a silkscreen stencil. Each color requires a separate stencil and is printed with higher quality of ink.
  • Lithograph- An Art Print that has been produced by the process of putting designs or writing with a greasy material on stone, from which printed impressions are produced.

What if I cannot find what I'm looking for?
Be sure to review the section: Finding a Product.

If you still cannot find what you are looking for, it is most likely Out of Print and no longer available.

What's an original movie poster & a double-sided movie poster?
Generally, original movie posters have a limited print run and are only available for a short period of time. Original movie posters are often double-sided—with a mirror image of the print on each side.
