For you to be able to start buying and selling on the marketplace, all you have to do is to register or create an account and agree to the terms and conditions. When it comes to the terms and conditions, it is very important to read them in detail as it contain information about your responsibilities as a seller and a buyer, including listing information, shipping and delivery information, prohibited items, restricted items, and how to handle any problem that may arise such as item that have not arrived or item not as described.

If you are planning to sell online, it is important that you read and understand the seller basics in order to be educated on how to effectively create a good listing, the different seller fees involved, and the consequences of not complying with the rules and regulations. When it comes to creating a listing, you have to include the full item description such as the color, manufacturer, any serial number, the measurements, and be sure to attach as many photos as you can of all sides or angles of the item. It make sure that you properly describe your items, preventing the buyer from making any complaints of “item not as described”, thereby protecting yourself from such claims.

Online marketplaces have a sense of equality and balances operations by obtaining buyers’ feedback and comments to sellers, and they are also asked to rate sellers basing on item description, on time dispatch and delivery, and communication and sellers can freely report abusive buyers. It is a fact that more and more people are buying and selling online, and the evolution goes through what we can imagine.
