How to put your item on D4A?

Everyone has some stuff at home that they are trying to get rid of and maybe make some money or help someone to find what they are looking for. 

Posting a listing on D4A is real easy. All you have to do is to create a profile (if you haven’t already) and log in. Then you just press the button + Post a new listing on the top right corner of the page next to your profile icon. Then you will have to select a category based on what you’re selling and who it is meant for.  

When the category is picked you will land on the page where the listing is created. All you now need to do is to fill out the boxes and provide the information of the post. You insert the listing title and decide on the selling price. Make sure you read the D4A fee and a payment processing fee, so you can avoid any unexpected surprises. The way the item you are selling will be delivered is in your hands, you and the buyer can decide on the delivery method that you think is the most suitable and easiest for both.

If you select shipping then you have to state the shipping fee (we are working on the shipping calculator that will provide an accurate cost of the shipment). That way the seller is not responsible for covering the costs of the shipping. The second delivery method is a pickup in person. In that case seller and the buyer work out the details and meet face to face, if it is possible we advise this method because you can inspect the item you are buying in person.

When you are writing the description of the product make sure to go in as much detail as possible, that way when you are contacted by the buyer you can get straight to the point. 

Our suggestion for the means of shipping abroad is that you look up Eurosender. They specialise in logistic services and are very adaptable and affordable. On their website, they also thoroughly explain the process of shipping and what you have to pay attention to. If you are not able to find the solution on their website we suggest that you contact their help-desk. You can also turn on your country’s official postal service like in example (postal service of Slovenia) for the shipments within your country. 

When entering your location make sure that your location matches the location on the google map below.

To post an image you just click on the box that says Select file and find the image you are looking for on your computer. Then all you have to do is to click on the image and press the button choose. If the image is not uploaded immediately just wait a few seconds because the image is being processed. Make sure that the images of the product you are selling are well lit and in focus so the buyers will be able to see the condition of the item. The quality of the image will be best if you use the JPG or PNG images that are 660×440 pixels in size.  

The last step before the post goes live is to click on the button Post listing and just like that, you will be a seller on the D4A.
