YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT DEXILEOS

line

WHO ARE YOU

Dexileos is created by the French company Media Antic France, owning Proantic, the leading antique dealer website in Europe.
Since 2009 we have been committed to offering antique dealers in Europe a great service based on a simple idea: your antique dealership is your business, with your merchandise and your clients. Proantic dealers enjoy our full service with a flat-fee. There is no -and will never be- any commission or hidden costs.
In 2020 we decided to apply the same idea to a website dedicated to North America's market. We hired people dedicated to this project, with a real knowledge of the US so that Dexileos offers antique dealers a tailored service aimed at the American market.


NO SALES COMMISSIONS, BUT HOW MUCH DOES IT REALLY COST

Dexileos is based on a simple 3-month, 6-month or yearly subscription that gives you access to your gallery.
That is the only cost you will have to pay. No other fee will be applied in order for you to use your gallery.
A gallery can contain 200 objects (there will be subscriptions with more objects), and you can make room by deleting old objects.
Our fees:
Subscription 3 months 6 months 12 months
3 months 150 objects €255
(€85/month)
6 months 200 objects €480
(€80/month)
12 months 200 objects €800
(€67/month)
12 months 350 objects €1200
(€100/month)
12 months 500 objects €1500
(€125/month)
12 months 700 objects €1700
(€142/month)
12 months 1000 objects €1900
(€158/month)

These are the only fees we are collecting.


ANY OTHER WAY YOU ARE PLANNING TO MAKE MONEY? ARE THERE EXTRA OPTIONS, HIDDEN COSTS

Similar to Proantic, we might introduce the possibility for the galleries to display some objects on the home page, but otherwise, your subscription will be your only cost.
We are not collecting any data, we do not use tracking cookies (other than Google analytics).
None of your data or information will ever be sold to third party companies.
We won't clutter our offer with hundreds of options, because we believe in simplicity and fairness.


YOU SAY I WILL MANAGE 100% OF MY SALES: WHAT DOES IT MEAN

It means that your customers will contact you directly from Dexileos, but then you will be conversing directly with them, using your private email, or any other way of communication you want to.
We do not control anything once the initial contact has been established with your client.
Payment, shipping are entirely in your hands, Dexileos does not manage this at any moment.


I HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT, CAN I USE IT ON YOUR WEBSITE TO SELL MY OBJECTS

Yes, we made this possible. Simply by activating this free option on your Dexileos account (you just need to give us the email address you registered on your paypal account), you can set up your objects to be sold immediately through your PayPal account.
This is a free service, we do not charge anything.


YOU ARE A FRENCH COMPANY, WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR PROFESSIONALS IN THE US OR CANADA

There is no implication for that matter. We do not store any sensitive data (not even your payment information) and our server is hosted in the US.
You will be able to pay for your subscription by credit card with the highest security level.
Media Antic France has been running Proantic for more than 10 years. We are dedicated to offering the best service to all our clients.


WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING FOR THE PROMOTION OF DEXILEOS AND ITS GALLERIES?

We hired a person who is French-American citizen, specifically for this matter.
She is going to develop our Instagram and Facebook accounts where objects will be promoted. She will also be writing articles about art and antiques in the online Dexileos magazine which will be live in the next few months.
There also will be a weekly news-letter which will make the promotion of objects and galleries on Dexileos.


WE ALL HAVE PERSONAL WEBSITES, INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS, WHY USE AN EXTRA CHANNEL LIKE DEXILEOS

This is one of the most common question we have heard a lot about Proantic.
You may already have a website and social network profiles. But it doesn’t make you automatically visible on the Web.
When people search on the internet for specific pieces that you happen to have in store, is your website showing up on the first page of the search results? Standing out from others is not an simple task.
Dexileos is going to act as a marketplace that people interested in antiques and art will find more easily. Because it will be vibrant with new pieces added daily, it will act as a true virtual antiques fair or flea market where the antique and art enthusiasts gather.
Each dealer keeps their own space on Dexileose Each object posted refers to the gallery (with name, contact and a link to its page).
Our experience with Proantic showed us the power and strength of our concept, clients love it and many American professionals already shop on Proantic.
We feel it will be the same success with Dexileos in the US and Canada.


THERE ARE OTHER OFFERS ON THE MARKET, WHY DEXILEOS SHOULD BE BETTER

There are many ways to bring dealers and clients together and create a market.
Dexileos makes the choice to offer great visibility to antique dealers while remaining very simple and extremely cost effective.
You will not need to mark up your prices to cover for commission or extra service. Dexileos will be a direct extension of your business, cheaper than a personal website, easier to maintain and much more efficient.
We believe deep at heart that each dealer needs proper space to express its own expertise and singularity. That’s how a marketplace flourishes and remains vibrant.
That’s certainly because Proantic (Dexileos older sister) was thought out and created in 2009 by someone who had been at the time an Antique dealer in Paris Flea market (Puces de Saint-Ouen) for years, someone with a genuine passion for antiques and deep knowledge of their trade.
Dexileos is governed by the same basic principles that put the dealers and the customers first.


WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME AND MY BUSINESS CAN I SHOW ON DEXILEOS

In addition to your clients being able to contact you directly, you can show your phone number, address, personal website, Instagram account.
You can also create your own text for the presentation of your business as well as add a slideshow.
We allow you to include links to your own website in the descriptions of your objects as long as descriptions are comprehensive.
You also create your own text for the presentation of your gallery and you can have a slideshow of pictures to present your business to your clients.
