  • Some great listing tips.
    Great quality photos and descriptions are key to getting your items noticed. Here’s a few simple things to keep in mind when listing your items for sale, rent or swap. What photos should I upload? Having lots of great quality photos will attract attention and help your items move faster. Keep these simple tips in mind when adding photos to your listing: First Pic, Full View: show the entire item in the first picture – avoid collages. Use your own pictures: don’t use stock images, pictures you find online or watermarks. They will not accurately depict the true condition of the item. Capture the true colours: Choose pictures taken in natural daylight, and don’t use flash or filters. Reveal different angles: Take photos of the item from multiple angles Close-up of important features: Attach close-up photos of important features that aren’t visible in other photos. This could include labels, sticking, brands or the like. Show the defects: Show the item’s defects in the pictures (if they exist). It’s important to be open and transparent about the true condition of the item you are selling to avoid buyer disappointment. Describing an item Including a detailed description of your item will make your listing more appealing to the viewer. A detailed Product Title also makes it easier for viewers to find items when searching through the Wardrobe. Follow these simple tips to increase your chances of selling faster: Descriptive Title: Include specific items such as it brand, colour, type of unique features in the title. Avoid using wording that doesn’t show how your item differentiates from the rest. For example: DO USE: Vintage Black mid-length Leather Coat AVOID: Good Quality Coat / Very Nice Coat Detailed Description: The best descriptions provide detailed and accurate information about an item. If you were buying an item, what would you want to know about it? Remember to include things such as: Measurements Material Item’s alterations Any damage or flaws, e.g., marks, stains, tears, spots pilling, fraying etc. (remember to include a photo of these areas for your buyers).
