Creating and managing listings

Creating a listing is the first step in getting your item in front of buyers. Depending on your needs, we have a range of tools and options to help make sure your listing ends in a sale.

If you're a casual seller, our quick listing tool provides the core features you need to get started selling, and will walk you through the listing process step-by-step. If you're selling frequently, in bulk, or as a business, you may want to use our advanced listing form.

Learn more about our advanced listing form.

When you’re ready to list your item, you'll start by describing what you're selling, choosing whether to use the auction or fixed-price format, and setting a price. You'll then go on to select your postage preferences, a return policy, and how you want to get paid.

Our guides below also have useful information on adding images and categories, as well as how to set buyer requirements and making changes to your listing after it’s live on our site.
