Sellers learn here how to utilize your listings. If you’re just a buyer and that’s all you want to do…sign-up as a buyer only for free. We’re pretty confident buyers can become sellers fairly quickly!
What can be on listings?
Anything that is not on our prohibited items list. Promote your product, service, event, etc.
Can listings be only for one item or service?
Get creative! One listing can be one item, many of the same type of item, or various items.
You don’t have to list for each separate item you have. You can have 25,000 of the same light bulb on one listing…and put in different pricing columns – giving buyers a discount if you so choose. It just depends on the product, service, or event you are promoting. The key is getting your listing noticed quickly and efficiently!
What if I sell out of an item but plan to get more back in stock to sell?
Just inactivate the listing until you have the item back in stock. This will however count toward your max listings.
What if I no longer have a need to sell or promote a listing again?
Delete the listing and put another one in it’s place if you want. A deleted listing does not count toward the maximum. You just freed up another spot!
Will others be able to share my listings to social media?
If you choose to do so…the default is to always allow anyone to promote. Let others spread the word for you! You can also link to your own Twitter or Facebook Pages as well! Use the site as a REPOSITORY to store your listings. You can share your listings in a couple of clicks to Facebook or Twitter…no more having to copy/paste and add pictures over and over. Use the site for that alone if you want. Again, so many ways to use the site!
On a listing, what do external links, “Buy It” links, etc. do for me?
The key is promotion. We really do encourage it. For payment (“Buy It”), you can link to Paypal, link to your own website, or in person (and many other ways). You can also link to another site that explains your product or service. Other type sites are “introverts” in that they want to keep you within the site and usually ban these type of listings. Again, creativity is the key and this site allows for just that!
How do I get contacted by buyers about my listing (if needed)?
With a strong attention to your security, we have a messaging system that allows buyers to contact you through the site…without knowing who you are. Work out the deals directly with them. We have some very exciting news regarding this in the days to come!
What does my monthly fee do for me?
An example explains it well: If you have the Discovery Plan (25 listings), you have that many listings available at any given time…as long your subscription is active. On another popular site, if you sell a $100 item, your selling fees will cost you close to what you can get for having this plan for 6 months…for just ONE item! Do the math too…we did and know we are offering a really good deal! 🙂
What if I already have a website?
GET NOTICED EVEN MORE! What if you paid $2,000 (or more) for a small website and nobody hardly ever visits. Promote it here! Link the “Buy It” link directly to your checkout! Attach up to five category/subcategories to help your listing. If you don’t see a combination for your listing, ask us to review. We will! How many pages do people have to scroll through to find your site? We’re basically like a search engine too!
What other ways can I use the site?
*Store your inventory here for people to see quickly (with pictures). If you don’t have the item any longer and want to store it, just make them “inactive” so others won’t think it’s still available.
*Let’s say you have various salespeople in the field as well…use our site to quickly get information out to those people.
*Do others want you to sell their stuff because they don’t want to deal with it…use the site and get a commission!
*Again, be creative. Be sure and let us know if you have a success story…you may get promoted even more!
The plan you choose determines the number of listings you can have. Your plan can grow as you do. You could be a large business with only few items to promote…so choose the cheapest plan. You could be an individual with a few thousand items to sell…so choose the highest plan. There’s a number of reasons to choose different plans no matter who you are!
In the coming days we’ll be giving you more helpful and insightful ways to use the site…Now Go Sell Something and spread the word!
