Our most recent press release announced a wave of new API integrations. We are thrilled to be partnering with a number of businesses looking to launch or scale their ecommerce initiatives or streamline their offline sales process both pre- and post-sale.
While the data shows this to be true, we are seeing firsthand an increase in demand and business needs to sell online. Sales of collectibles, art, and design have exploded; the total market is estimated at $300 Billion. Online sales in particular are accounting for a larger percentage of the overall market, which is growing 20% year over year. With this surge in online activity, marketplaces, auction houses, galleries, and other online sellers are focused on delivering an ecommerce experience that meets the evolving needs of the market, including a more seamless purchase and fulfillment experience.
As such, both new entrants to the market and incumbent sellers are leveraging ARTA to get to market quickly to meet this new demand, with 10 new clients set to go live with an integration by the end of the summer, including Artland, Charles Moffett Gallery, Kirpa Auction House, Wescover, Up My Art, Altamira, and more. ARTA’s platform allows businesses to eliminate the inherent friction in selling unique items online, by providing instant shipping costs pre-purchase, enabling a click-to-buy transaction, and streamlining complex logistics by automating end-to-end fulfillment.
