The second step of the listing form will ask you for specific item details. These fields will help tag data that we will use for advanced search filters. We’ll ask about the item’s age, condition, and dimensions, as well as some specific fields that relate to search.
As you are filling out Step 2: The Details, you will receive error messages as you go if you have left any required fields empty. Once you have completed The Details, continue onto Step 3 of the listing form. If you would like to save your listing as a draft to finish later, click the Save button in the top right of the listing form page.
Step 2 will include:
- Brand/Artist/Designer/”Styled After”
- Place of Origin
To complete the Brand, Artist, or Designer section of your listing, as you begin typing in each of these fields, a drop down list will appear from which you can choose the appropriate name. If you don't know the name(s) for these fields, you can type in "Unknown" or check "Unknown" at the top right of this section of the listing. If you don't see the name(s) in our pull down menus, you will still be able to type the name in the fields.
The “Styled After” field should be used if you cannot authenticate your item. If your item is “believed to be designed by”, “attributed to”, or “in the style of”, please enter that brand or designer name in the “Styled After” field, but keep the remaining Brand, Artist and Designer fields blank.
For best results, please be sure to add the brand or artist/designer to the title or description of your listing.
When you click into the Style field, a list of all possible style options available will appear. Select up to three styles to describe your item for sale. Select from list or start typing a style to select a tag. For best advanced search results, tag a few styles that describe your individual item, rather than the style of room that the item could be placed in.
When you click into the Materials field, a list of all possible material options available will appear. When adding Styles, Colors, Materials, Rooms, you will just need to start typing and select the appropriate option from the drop down menu that appears. If you see a "+" next to names appearing in the drop down menu this indicates there are sub categories within those fields that you can select for a more defined description.
For example, for the color "Gold" clicking on the "+" provides two additional options of brass and bronze.
If you included a material keyword in the title or description, the listing form will suggest adding that material. You can select the material to apply the tag to the listing, or delete the material and add a tag better suited for your item.
If your item has a metal finish, you will find options in the Materials dropdown.
When you click into the Colors field, a list of all possible color options available will appear. You can drill down to subcategories to select the most relevant option for your type of item.
If you wrote a color keyword in the title or description, the listing form will suggest adding that color. You can select the color to apply the tag to the listing, or delete the color and add a tag better suited for your item.
Room tag selection will help shoppers search and find your item when shopping by room. Select a room or two to categorize your item. For example, Beds and Headboards should be tagged with a Bedroom room tag, while Dining Tables could be tagged as Dining Room and Kitchen.
Place of Origin
Select the country where the item was made from the list in the dropdown menu.
Many shoppers are looking for products with specific dimensions to fit a space. If the purchased product has dimensions in person that differ from the listing, you may be at risk for a return. Having correct dimensions also helps shoppers refine searches when using our dimension advanced search filters.
In the listing form, there is a section for dimensions with three fields for Width (side to side), Depth (front to back), and Height (bottom to top). All three dimensions are mandatory and should only be entered in inches. If your listing contains more than one piece of a different size, enter the dimensions of the largest piece in the dimension field and all additional dimensions in the description.
If your item can be disassembled for shipping, please enter Shipping Dimensions of the item disassembled or box size on Part 3: The Logistics section of the listing form.
Depending on the category of the item you are listing, you will be prompted to enter any additional dimensions that are specific to each category (such as each section of a sectional, seat height, arm height, etc). Please enter additional dimensions in the listing form in order to reduce the amount of Q&A from a shopper before purchase.
The condition section of the listing form will ask a series of questions in order to gather a thorough condition report of your item. Please add any additional comments about the condition in the Condition Details paragraph field. It is important to accurately describe the condition of your item to the best of your ability in order to reduce the amount of Q&A from a shopper and reduce the risk of a return after a sale.
