You’ve registered an account and are now ready to take the next step and start selling your unwanted items…..so how exactly do you do that?? Well, placing a FREE advert on So Sell It couldn’t be easier! Begin by clicking on the Place a Free Ad Now button at the top of the page, then follow the few simple steps we’ve outlined below and you’ll be selling your stuff in no time!
The first step is to select the category which best suits the item you are selling, the image below shows where you need to click to begin the category selection process.
When you click on this you will now select the category and sub category to which your item will be placed on So Sell it. The image below is an example as if you were selling a child’s buggy:
The next and one of the most important steps is to decide on a title for your item. It should be kept short with just basic details such as the make and model of the item you are selling. Make sure to double check the spelling is correct as your ad won’t appear in searches if there is a typo or spelling mistake. Give as much information as you possible can in your item description, the more accurate and detailed information you give the less questions you will need to answer and the better chance you have to sell your item.
Next you need to decide how much you want to sell your item for. Remember the more realistic your asking price, the faster your item will sell. Do some research to make sure that your item is priced in line with the current market. Use the tick box to let buyers know whether your item is NEW (in original box and unused) or USED. If you are sure you don’t want to accept anything below the asking price then all you have to do is un-tick the box which indicates that you wish to receive offers. Along with deciding on whether or not you wish to accept offers you must also decide if you are willing to swap your item for something else. If you want to receive a swap on your item just tick the box at this step and then specify what you are willing to swap for.
Once you’ve completed the above the next step is to upload images – make sure to upload images that display your item in its best light, as the saying goes a picture speaks a thousand words! Try to upload as many as possible because research shows that the more images uploaded the greater the chance of selling the item.
Selecting your location couldn’t be easier. You will need to set your location on your first advert upload, after this your location will be saved but your have access to change location if needed. Our map can help you pin point your exact address – but don’t worry your full address will not be on view to buyers. To have a better chance to sell your item you should leave a contact number on your advert, adverts with a contact number have an 80% better chance of selling. At this point you can also leave a website link if you are selling an item which you can be viewed elsewhere on-line.
The final step is to decide on your preferred delivery and payment options for your item, once done just tick the appropriate boxes and the ones you choose will be displayed on the live advert.
