So you can list a big batch of listings one day if that's what you like to do, but have them start in spurts by scheduling them to go live on different days.
Also - make sure your styling, photography and items is consistent as well so your shop looks cohesive.
3. Variety is the spice of life!
Have a variety of items, price ranges & styles available in your shop.
This will enable buyers who love your style may not be able to afford the designer or collectible items to purchase a more affordable accessory or item in order to get to know your shop and add something from your collection into their wardrobe.
Plus it will help you find which items from your inventory sell the best on Market Publique!
Did you know that auctions sell twice as fast as fixed price items on Market Publique?
Consider listing a portion of your inventory regularly as auctions.
Buyers love getting a good deal, and they will often get excited about an item that's getting a lot of attention.
Our seller shopEBV has increased her sales over 78% by listing her new items as auctions every Monday.
She relists any unsold items as Buy Now / Fixed Price for higher amounts the week after, so buyers know to bid and snag them while they can. Thus, her inventory turnover is high, so she can afford to keep things fresh.

You can add this feed to your Facebook page, a custom TweetBot and more! Tutorials on how to do this will be posted soon.
Introducing our new photo management system! We've made a lot of improvents on the site, which means faster loading times, easier image grabs for your blog posts, and ta-dah:
BULK Photo Upload
Now you you can upload many images for your listings at once! No more waiting for each picture to load!
You can also reorder, delete and upload more images, so your listings look just like you want.
Review our screencast, where we show you how the new bulk upload works, and just think about what you'll be doing with all time you'll be saving by having Bulk Upload, Selling Defaults, and our exclusive one-page listing process.
Your main image should still be square, 490 pixels by 490 pixels wide.
Drag and drop your square main image to the #1 spot.

If the store name has spaces or other special characters (not including _ underscores or - dashes), substitute the spaces for plus signs (+). For example, if you want to shop from Whiskey and Lace, you would type:

Seller Defaults are a great way to put a template of useful information such as your store polices, your store logo, and measurement fields for "bust", "waist", "hips", etc. Its also a great place to set up things like "fabric", "marked size", "estimated size", etc. You can add simple custom HTML as well!
