Two jewellery professionals have launched a new app for the industry today which enables members of the trade to showcase and source jewellery, watches and antiques and if they so wish, advertise items for sale to consumers.
The app, called Jewellery Trader, has been created by members of the industry, for the industry, and has been designed to provide an “innovative, cost effective selling tool in an easy to use and manage platform”.
Sellers on the app will be able to list items for sale; at trade prices for fellow professionals and/or adding margins for consumer sales on a no commission basis.
The app’s launch is marked with an incentive offer to trade of a no joining fee and free credits on completing a two-step registration process.
Jewellery Trader aims to put professional jewellers and affiliated businesses in touch with buyers and it hopes as the marketplace grows, it will take the legwork out of hunting down specific items by finding it on Jewellery Trader.
Daniel Seller (left), co-founder, Jewellery Trader comments: “For years, I have felt there are many trade professionals and retailers who have certain stock they would very much like to find an alternative way to sell. The traditional routes are often prohibitively expensive. There has been no central marketplace that provides a platform for fellow jewellers to see what stock is available.”
He continues: “The industry was previously fractured in this regard however technological innovation now makes it possible to not only sell to other professionals, but also showcase to the public which is a great way to release items from the depths of your stock and release valuable cash flow into your business.”
The app is easy to use and as it grows it will take the legwork out of hunting down ‘that specific item’ by finding it on Jewellery Trader. It also connects buying from all around the world and introduces them to each other.
Lewis Malka, co-founder, adds: “This simple to use app creates a one stop shop for those looking to source goods from within our own community both in the UK and internationally. I am excited to be part of the jewellery community and to be able to use my experience marketing to consumers as part of this initiative, as well as my technical experience to create an easy to use and simple industry tool that solves an age old problem.”
The app is available from the Apple store.
