MEMBERSHIP

Please click here if you would like to apply. Members must be full time and professional Dealers, and carry sufficient stock to be able to regularly contribute to the site. Items must be of good quality, in good saleable condition and as described. Good, clear photographs are very important and we run a strict policy on such.

DISCIPLINES

We accept members dealing in all disciplines, inlcuding some architectural and reclaim, but not things like bricks or other building materials. We do not allow offensive or banned items. We accept both antique and 20th Century dealers and would be pleased to hear from those creating 21st Century items of non-massed produced, hand made or bespoke items of quality. We do not accept reproduction items on this site.

PHOTOGRAPHY

All members are required to be proficient in taking photographs, especially as we have a zoom function on the site.  Taking pictures with phones is not acceptable nor advised and we run a strict policy on reserving the right to remove or adjust any pictures that we deem unacceptable.

CLIENT HANDLING

All members must be helpful and professional in their handling and attitude towards all clients. We have a lot of overseas clients and time differences arise which members must be mindful of and appreciate that they may sometimes have to reply to clients in the evenings or weekends in order to secure a sale.

TECHNOLOGY

All members are expected to be able to operate a laptop or desktop computer as they are responsible for managing their own content on the site themselves. Ipads can also be used, but latest software and browser versions are important as the DC is a modern, 21st Century site.

COMMITTMENT

Running your own website or being part of a site such as the DC, works best for those that are prepared and able to contribute on a regular basis.  Please bear this in mind before applying.

Please note that whilst there is no Contract required Dealers commit to providing 1 full months paid notice should they wish to leave, so if you are in the middle of a paid up month, you would need to pay the following month.
