AWAD’s corporate partner, SeekUnique, is delighted to announce the launch of a pioneering new service at the upcoming LAPADA Fair in Berkley Square, London, 26th September to 1st October 2023.

Dealer2Dealer (D2D) is SeekUnique’s game-changing app for accredited dealers to buy, sell and virtually consign any inventory item to one or more dealers worldwide, at the touch of a button. Combining SeekUnique’s free stock management system with D2D fees as low as 1%, this is set to revolutionise the industry, eliminating sky-high buyers’ commissions and listing fees.

Until now, auctions, marketplaces and direct sales between acquainted dealers, have been the primary methods to move unsold inventory. SeekUnique’s innovative D2D app and pricing model empowers dealers to advertise their items to a much wider audience with minimal effort and cost. Once an item has been added to the D2D network, you are in complete control of who can see and who can virtually consign it along with all pricing & commissions. You can also earn commissions by consigning other dealers’ items and will not be charged for cancelled sales. 

Further benefits accrue for dealers who have a SeekUnique website since the items are automatically added or marked as sold without human intervention. Options include utilising AI to help promote your items to suitable dealers, analysing customer views on consigners’ websites and helping you find items to sell to your own customers.

SeekUnique are sponsoring free coffee for dealers on stand A11 at the LAPADA Fair and invite you to visit and be part of this remarkable launch. 

To ensure the authenticity of listed items, dealers must be a member of an accredited industry association, such as LAPADA, BADA or AWAD.

SeekUnique has been gently revolutionising businesses that focus on unique items since 2008. Their BusinessManager app has helped hundreds of antique and art dealers soft-launch into digital and finally put down their pen & paper or Excel spreadsheets for good; from one-person businesses to large companies requiring multilingual content and multiple currencies.

LAPADA is the largest professional trade association of art & antiques dealers in the UK. Over 500 dealers represent expertise across the entire spectrum of art and antique items: furniture, fine art, carpets, tapestries, antiquities, clocks, ceramics, decorative objects, silver and jewellery.
