It’s important to know when deciding to sell art, vintage and antiques online, that not every marketplace is right for every type of stock. Marketplaces have built different customer bases and have varying methods of operation when it comes to price. Dealers don’t have the time to search to find all of the marketplaces, let alone do the research and calls to gather the pertinent information to figure out which is best for them, and make the critical decisions about where to list their pieces.
Problem solved: Ronati’s Selling Online: A Guide to Vintage and Antique Marketplaces. The guide covers all the details, from pricing to customer base, for more than 25 marketplaces and platforms all in one place. It is the definitive resource for dealers interested in selling antiques online.
The Guide was developed in partnership with LAPADA, the largest vetted Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, based in London. It is an invaluable resource for dealers who are ready to sell art, vintage, and antiques online but need guidance on which marketplaces are most suitable.
In the words of Freya Simms, CEO of LAPADA, “If you want to get ahead, you have to get online.”
For dealers who are already selling online, the Guide can help you plan your online sales expansion.
The Guide provides all the details you need to know to start the decision-making process about where to sell online, including established marketplaces such as LAPADA, Decorative Collective, IstDibs, Chairish, InCollect, Love Antiques, Vinterior, and many other active marketplaces with ongoing traffic from qualified buyers of antique and vintage pieces.
You may enjoy doing online research, or you might prefer an easier path. You can discover all you need to know about online marketplaces in a single catalogue, laid out simply with all the details you need. Check it out, and share your feedback with the team at Ronati; they’d love to hear from you! The entire focus of the Ronati team is to create tools and information that make selling antiques online both fun and rewarding. It really is a whole new world – and you are invited.
P.S. If you’re concerned about managing multiple marketplaces, Ronati’s eCommerce Manager (eCM) enables you to upload your stock images and information once, and then post, edit and manage them across multiple marketplaces, websites, and platforms. As one of our dealers says, “It’s a dream come true!”
