Create the Perfect Listing
Photo's are the most important element. A great photo will dramatically increase the likelihood that someone will get in touch. The whole site is designed around making an impact with a picture. Each listing can have many, many photos.. but make sure the best one is the first one in the list. This will be used for your main page display.
Set the right price. The most effective way to sell is to create a good impression and build a good reputation. The fastest way to lose your reputation is to overcharge.
Include as much detail as you can in your listing. Our beta feedback showed that the more detail, and the more upfront your information, the more likely you are to be contacted
If you have additional terms, please state them clearly in the box provided.
Create one listing per product(s). It is much more effective to have separate listings for each product that trying to combine them into a single listing. You can create as many listings as you like, and all will appear in your Profile section.
Pick the category for your listing carefully. Placing products in the right groups makes searching easier for users. Putting the wrong types of products in the wrong groups creates a poor impression.
Use your real name. Users are far more likely to respond to a person than a nickname.
Add you location to the listing. We have a cool feature whereby users can see your listing via a map. This has proved popular so take advantage of it. This can also help avoid unwanted enquiries when, for example, you do not ship outside of your country.
Use your Profile page. Make sure you put as much detail as you can here. This is your 'shop front, and this will be visited by users.
Who you are, what you sell and any details that are relevant to all sales. You can add hyperlinks to your description. Make sure you use the full URL i.e. http://mysite.co
