Tips for listing your gear

  • Whenever possible, use photos and captions
    • Images are the best possible way to get noticed. Take the time to shoot some good angle shots and showcase your gear. SmartPhones work extremely well as long as there is adequate lighting.
    • Adding captions to briefly describe each photo not only shows you took the time to post an informative listing, they can also clarify questions a buyer may have about the image.
  • Sizing Images
    • The optimum size for images in 800 X 600 pixels, at 72dpi. By now, most everyone should be familiar with image sizing, and have access to the most basic image editing software. The maximum file size you can upload for each image is 4 megabytes.
    • Please note that forcing an image to the maximum size will not result in a better picture, it will result in a larger picture when the potential buyer clicks on it. It’s far better to spend time taking good photos than taking large photos.
    • Please note: we added a feature that will resize high resolution images to 72dpi. There’s no need uploading 300dpi images for the web.
    • Images which have EXIF data that changes the orientation will be corrected when uploaded. If you don‘t know what EXIF data is, then you needn‘t be concerned.
    • We also offer the ability to create a custom color palette to match your business needs. If you’re interested, contact us.
  • Always save original packaging
    • Having original packing, including foam and plastic wrap, manuals, cabling and warranty information will not only show you cared for the equipment, but it will help sell your gear faster and for a better price.
  • Be reasonable with your price
    • We want to see you get the most for your gear. If you are not getting offers, you should consider lowering the price or paying for the shipping. This is what we give you the flexibility to edit your listing any time (as long as no offers are pending).
  • Shipping is always more than you think
    • If you haven’t taken the time to research the cost of shipping, be careful you don’t underestimate how much shipping prices have gone up. Better to be a little high than way too low.
    • If you decide not to add a shipping price to your listing, be sure to describe the shipping terms you have in mind in your description. You should also encourage buyers to ask about shipping costs. Leaving the shipping cost off, even if it’s a rough estimate, is not a good idea, and can potentially cost you a sale.
