    • White cardstock paper (no printer paper) and scissors
    • Printer
    • Safety pins or tagging gun
    • Plastic bags to hold accessories or parts
    • String, zip ties, or ribbon
    • Child-sized metal or plastic hangers (if selling clothing)

    2. Create an account and register for your sale

    You’ll sign up for sales, manage your inventory, and track sold items here.

    A good photo can be the difference between selling and not selling! We’ve compiled some helpful photo tricks & tips below.

    4. Upload and tag

    We use tags to keep track of the inventory and make sure your items get to the right person. It’s important that you follow these instructions carefully to make sure your items are tracked and you get paid.  Have questions about tagging? Visit our “How to Tag” page for more instructions here

  • Photo Taking Tips and Tricks: 

    No, we’re not talking professional-quality, but good pictures are important and will increase the likelihood of your items being sold. Remember your photos that you upload is what the customer will see. 

    1. All you need is your phone!

    Take photos on your phone, iPad or another device.

    2. Find some good light!

    Shoot during daylight, pull back your blinds and turn off the lamps. Or take the items outside on a nice day. 

    3. Use a clean and simple background

    A white poster board or blank surface will ensure your item shines.

    4. You only get ONE picture per item, so make it a good one!

    Double-check that your image isn’t blurry and that a thumb didn’t sneak over the lens.

    5. Shooting bundles?

    Make sure all items can be seen.
