SELL YOUR PRODUCTS

If you are new to our website please click "Sell / Buy Products" in the navigation bar and then click on the blue "Register" button to create an account.
Then fill out the rest of the form, create a password and click on the checkbox to verify that you read our Terms & Conditions and finally click on the "Register" button.
You will now be redirected to the login screen, here you can use your new credentials to log into your account.
You will now see your Dashboard where you can do the following:

Sell Products

  • Select a Product Category and fill in the provided fields, i.e. Additional Information (be as descriptive as possible to avoid too many questions from potential buyers), Price, Quantity, Zip Code etc. Here you may also upload your photo(s). The better the quality of your photos the better the chance you will sell your products quickly.  When you are finished filling out the form click on the "Submit" button.
  • On the following screen you will see your newly listed product, here you also have the option to delete or edit the listing or to start adding additional products.
  • Keep in mind that whenever you create a new listing it will be "pending" until we verify the listing for accuracy and quality. This can take up to 24 hours. Also, every time you make a change to an existing listing it will have to go through the same verification process.
  • Once your product is verified it will be become part of our website's inventory and potential buyers will be able to see it during a product search.

Photo Formats

  • You will only be able to upload photos with the following formats .jpg, .png, .gif. Since iOS 11, Apple has introduced the HEIC image format for iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and more. If your phone uses this photo format you will need to change some of your phone settings to revert back to taking photos using the more conventional formats mentioned above. Here is an article to show you how to change this setting very easily in just a few steps: https://www.widsmob.com/articles/convert-heic-to-jpg-iphone.html
