Guide for Registered Sellers
Thank you for registering.
Please add a personal photo to your profile, complete other profile information
and begin listing!
STEP 1: TAKING PHOTOS
Remember that the photos you list are the single-most important factor in a buyer's decision making process.
Photos should be recently taken photos and must reflect the textile as it is at the time of listing.
STEP 2: LOGIN WITH YOUR SELLER ID
After your login with your Seller ID you will see this screen:
TO ADD A LISTING CLICK ON THE MAROON BOX SHOWN BELOW
AND YOU WILL ARRIVE AT THIS SCREEN
STEP 3. UPLOAD IMAGES
UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS ONE AT A TIME USING THE BOX SHOWN BELOW:
THEN BELOW THE PHOTO UPLOAD BOX, FILL IN THE SELLER EMAIL ID AS FOLLOWS:
5.1. TITLE OF YOUR LISTING
Try and coin a title that describes what your listing is about - you could include region of origin or craft or format. The name is the important to get the viewer's attention so try to be as clear as possible without making the title too long.
5.2. DESCRIPTION LISTING
Every written word adds a bit of flavour to the browsing experience of the buyer. So put in as much detail as you can. The origin, the colors, the dyes and the features that make it worthy of acquiring. Any cultural symbolism or explanation of motifs that you know about should be included.
Put in a price in US$ that you wish to sell at. Prospective Buyers may ask for discounts so factor that in. Please also factor in Paypal charges and any other charges that may be unique to your situation. Different people sell for different reasons - some want to cover costs, some want to make profits and others just want the textile to move to a loving home so that it is cared for. Interest from Buyers depends largely on the listed price.
As this platform is only for listing, prospective buyers will reach out to you to confirm buying price and payment arrangements.
5.4 ARTWORK SPECIFICS
