How do I create an advertisement?

Make sure that your advertisement title describes the product so that it will appeal to buyers. Use descriptive and product words; for example: Fender Standard Stratocaster. The advert will also then be picked up by the search  on the site and the search engines.

You should then write a detailed description of the product (even if this repeats what it is the title) including make, model, colour, age, how used (home use or gigged), any custom or unusual features and the overall condition.

We recommend to include details of scratches or dents and dings – the buyer may not be impressed if the delivered product is not what they thought.

Also include any technical details that might be relevant to the buyer such as what woods it is made from, whether it is all original or has been upgraded, pickup details,

Don’t forget to put the price you expect to sell it for!

You may also want to add the payment and shipping details along with a telephone number if you.  You can also say that wish to be contacted by Text for example.  or whether you will meet the buyer to let them try the item out. Be clear about payment methods you accept. Be as specific as you can about your shipping costs.

You can add up to 10 photos of the item via the browse and upload function. - the first one will appear on the main advert so the one with the most detail or full shot will be best at first

You can edit or remove your advert at any time.
