Ronati, in close partnership with LAPADA: The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, announced the launch of its 2022 Guide to Online Marketplaces for Sellers of Art, Vintage and Antiques.
Updated with freshly added marketplaces such as Antiques Boutique, Facebook Marketplace, Hunt Village, Kairos Collective, Shopify, and Styylish—the guide now covers over 30 online marketplaces with built-in communities of buyers relevant to any dealers’ focus.
Selecting the right marketplaces to sell online is critical to a dealer. LAPADA Chief Executive, Freya Simms, notes:
“Online global sales of art and antiques are estimated to have reached a record high of $13.5 billion in 2021, doubling in value on the previous year, and accounting for a record share of 25% of the market’s value. Dealers have shifted their priorities to bolster their online presence to reach new markets. This 2022 guide is invaluable for art and antiques dealers who want to thus navigate and benefit from the hugely successful multiple platforms available online today.”
Saving dealers countless hours of tedious research, the annual guide includes key requirements, fees, and pricing structures for each marketplace; easy-to-use signup links; and notations for the 18+ marketplaces directly integrated into Ronati’s popular inventory management platform.
“The fastest way to increase online sales of art, vintage and antique pieces is to identify and join key marketplaces,” notes Ronati Founder and CEO, Stacey Tiveron. “Focused marketplaces enable individual dealers, who don’t have digital marketing teams or large advertising budgets, to get their pieces in front of potential buyers cost-effectively. This guide includes both major and niche marketplaces, enabling you to tap into the global market of vintage and antiques buyers.”
