Taking great photos

We prefer minimum 5 photos

Various angles, the branding, materials, special design details and most importantly any defects should be photographed.

Avoid confusion as to what is for sale!

  • Separate the item to be sold from nearby objects and accessories.
  • Don’t group items unless they are being sold as a group. 

For best results:

  • Photograph in natural daylight.
  • Support your camera to avoid blurry shots.
  • For the ‘hero’ shot, keep your item wholly within the frame.
  • Clean your camera lens.

If you are unsure how to value your item, we are happy to assist.
Get in touch via our contact page and select ‘I’d like to sell something’ in the ‘My enquiry is about…’ field.

How do you calculate commission?2021-01-29T15:04:03+11:00

We calculate commission on the selling price. Our commission is 25%

Can I list my item simultaneously on another website?2018-12-06T02:37:27+11:00

We’d like to think that Two Design Lovers is the best place to sell your pre-loved items as we are catering to a design loving community. It is a condition of listing with us that if you do offer your item for sale elsewhere you may not do so at a lower price (ex-delivery).

Can I list an item for less than $100?2018-12-06T02:37:27+11:00

Two Design Lovers is not the right place to sell your pre-loved IKEA or low quality furniture. If you believe you have a unique and quality item that you are prepared to list for less than $100 please send an email with a photo of the item to for our consideration.

Do you accept lighting or electrical items?2019-03-01T05:40:13+11:00

Please send us an enquiry via our contact form if you have second hand lighting to sell.

Do I need a special camera to take photos of my item to list?2018-12-06T02:37:27+11:00

No. You may take photos on a phone or camera. We do our magic to make your photo look good. Bear in mind that we can only work with what you give us. A photo taken in poor quality light that affects how the colour looks may mislead a buyer and cost you money for a valid Return. Have you read our Important Tips? They include our photography guidelines.

Do I get special rates if I have more than one item to sell?2018-12-06T02:37:27+11:00

Find out if you qualify for our Professional Seller Programme here. Otherwise, our rates are fixed for all sellers.

When do I get paid?2019-03-01T05:42:09+11:00
  • As soon as your item sells, we begin the process of coordinating pick up and delivery. That can take up to 21 days depending on the availability and location of the buyer and seller, and the logistics schedule of the delivery provider.
  • Following delivery, we allow buyers 24 hours to notify us of any defect in the item.
  • If there is no issue, we process payments to sellers within 7 days following the expiry of that 24 hour period.
  • Sellers should note that, sometimes it might not be practical to deliver to the buyer on the same day the item is collected from the seller in which case the item will be safely stored by our professional delivery partner during the interim.
  • The time for payment will only start following the completed delivery to the buyer.
  • Typically payment will be received within 14 days of the item being picked up.
What should I do if my listed item is no longer available to sell?2018-12-06T02:37:27+11:00

It’s a condition of listing an item for sale with Two Design Lovers that you notify us immediately if your item ceases to be available. You can send us an email at or contact us here. You can check our Terms and Conditions for further details.
