Reach the World with an Instagram Shop
In the current global scene with limited in-person interactions with customers, we believe antiques and vintage dealers need as many online sales channels open as possible. The more places your pieces appear online, the more new buyers you can attract.
Selling Your Stock on Your Instagram Shop
Instagram’s shopping features allow your customers to complete the entire shopping journey — from discovery through purchase — directly in the app, with no worries about losing potential customers by asking them to visit another website or app. They have created a one-stop-shop. Once a buyer has discovered your beautiful inventory of products, whether a designer or an online buyer, they are yours to keep for the long term.
At Ronati, our priority is to help you get your inventory of unique items in front of as many possible buyers as possible so you can do more of what you love: Get back out there finding more!
