- $225 for 15 items (plus 3 extra items to replace sold items or on the final day)
- $260 for 21 items (plus 6 extra items to replace sold items or on the final day)
- $300 for 27 items (plus 6 extra items to replace sold items or on the final day)
*No commission on sales will be collected
HOW DO I REGISTER TO BE AN EXHIBITOR?
Only dealers who did not participate in January 2021’s New York Antiques Show will need to register at https://nyantiqueshow.com/dealer/create If you participated last January, your sign in and registration info has been saved in the platform.
WHERE DO I GO TO UPLOAD ITEMS AND PHOTOS?
You can upload anytime between early December and January 28 (You will be notified when, exactly, the platform is ready for your uploads). Go to the same website where you registered and look at the bottom of the page in the darkened area. You will see one or two links. If you see the term "MY ITEMS", click that to be brought directly to your dashboard. Or, if you do not see "My Items" you will see "DEALER SIGN-IN". Click that to be brought to a gateway and enter your email and password (the same that you used when you first registered) to be brought to your dashboard. If you forget your password you will be able to reset it. Select one of the packages offered there. You can always upgrade to a larger package later, BUT CANNOT downgrade so please choose your package carefully.
HOW DO I UPLOAD MY ITEMS?
When you are on your dashboard, you will see a green button named "Add Item". Clicking this button will take you to a page to add an item. Your description may be any length. You must choose one category and you may choose up to three categories for each item. If you decide to remove a category you have chosen, just "uncheck" it. You will be able to move items around within your booth after you have entered them so do not be concerned about their order at first. You may also add "keywords" after the description if you think that the category list doesn’t exactly fit your item and the words are not included in your description.
The latest upload manager includes a number of features that make it easier to upload such as not having to close out of the description page to add the photos plus the ability to view the entire booth.
WILL I BE ABLE TO RETRIEVE MY LISTINGS AFTER THE SHOW CLOSES?
Yes, a new feature has been added that allows you to export your past listings after the show closes. There will be a link on the front page that read "past items". Click that box to go to a download page. Keep in mind that the export is a spreadsheet and some of the columns such as the description need to be expanded to see the entire entry. At this time only the copy will export so be sure to save a file for your photos.
WHAT SIZE IMAGES AND HOW DO I UPLOAD THEM?
You may upload .jpg or .png images directly from your computer. Our new photo viewer greatly enlarges photos. To get the maximum out of this new feature, you should upload high resolution photos while still remaining under 10 megabyte in size. We suggest you upload, as a test, the highest-quality .jpg you are able. On a phone that would be the largest and highest resolution available. If that doesn’t upload properly, then try the saving the next smallest size. Images may be up to 3,000 pixels in one dimension.
The first image you upload becomes the feature photo and the rest will appear below the feature photo when a customer is on the item’s page looking for more details. You may move the order of the photos by the "drag and drop" method using your mouse.
NOTE: It is important to preview each item to be sure the photos are oriented properly. If a photo shows sideways it is usually because the image is too large. Try reducing the size and that should fix that problem. At this time, the orientation cannot be changed directly on the website.
HOW DO I KNOW HOW THE ITEMS WILL LOOK IN MY BOOTH?
To visualize the placement of each item within your booth, think of the booth as a grid with 3 items per row. The top left space will contain the first item and the bottom right space will contain the last item on the page. You may move the items into different positions using the "drag and drop" method. You may now also preview the entire booth to determine if you want to move an item into different position.
USE THIS SHOW TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS
- Complete the Registration Form with as much information about your business as possible. You may add or edit the information any time. Include your website, and social media information, a link to a video etc. and a logo if you have one. This information will appear on every page within your booth.
- Use the link icon to drive traffic to your website. You may want to add links above or below the item description Example: CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE ANTIQUE JEWELRY or CLICK HERE TO SHOP MORE FINE ART. The link icon is located on the dialogue box as a chain link. Once added to those words, the link will open in a new page so your customer can easily return to your show listings.
WHAT DETERMINES THE ORDER OF THE BOOTHS IN THE SHOW?
The booths are arranged in alphabetical order. Our research indicates the amount of traffic to a booth is not dependent on where the booth is situated within the show but, rather, on the key words used to describe an item. A new, more powerful search engine allows sorting by a number of attributes. The default is "most recent" so that new listings will show up first.
DO YOU HANDLE THE MONEY FOR THE SALE AND CAN I REPLACE AN ITEM ONCE IT SELLS?
No. You deal directly with the buyer who will contact you by phone, email or text, however you indicate in your profile. You will have a button on your "dashboard" to click when an item sells or is put on reserve. This button only appears once the show opens. "SOLD" or "RESERVED" will replace the price of that item within your booth. Therefore, do not remove the price from your listing because it will disappear when marked SOLD or RESERVED.
Post your best and/or freshest items not currently available on other selling sites (your website is an exception). Buyers want to see the best and latest of what you have. That is why we limit the number of items you can post.
You may not post multiple individual items in one space. The only exception is for a group of items sold as one unit. Reproductions are not allowed. We have the right to ask you to remove objectionable items from your booth.
IMPORTANT: You remain logged into your account until you click the link at the bottom of the page where you logged in that reads "SIGN OUT". Whenever you go back to the page to enter or change items look for the link at the bottom which reads "My Items". That is where you go to get back to your "dashboard" to edit your items. If you have already logged out, you will just have to log back in at "dealer Sign In"
When our show goes live, make yourself available to answer questions from customers by email, phone, and/or text. Don’t forget to check your junk email folder where important emails may land. Your listings are available 24 hours a day, but in you profile you can specify during which hours you prefer to be contacted under "hours of operation".
