    tip #1

    Style Your Covershot.

    Your Covershot is the very first photo of your listing and remember, first impressions count! Make sure your Covershot is well-lit and clear. Also, style it your way. Listings with Covershots like these tend to sell much faster!

    Describe Your Items Accurately.

    Take time to accurately describe the item you are listing. Include info such as the condition the item is in, provide measurements and tips on what to pair it with. Answering your potential buyers' questions up front will help them decide to hit that “Buy” button just a bit faster. You can give a potential buyer a better understanding of the item by providing photos of any wear or flaws.
