    1. Submit your listing for a quick quality check and once approved, the FurnitureEtc team will lovingly edit your pics to make sure your item is well presented.

     

    1. Your listing will be published on FurnitureEtc in 3-5 working days, where the team will promote it on your behalf.

     

    The details

    It’s free to list as many items as you like and they take 20% commission (plus VAT) on each sale. All items must be preloved, with a minimum listing value of £200 per product.

    The online seller account system makes it easy to manage your listings, track your orders and add new items whenever you like. Payments for all sales are made 14 days after your item has been collected. Simple!
