Step 3: Choose the location.

Upon selecting your category, you should select the location you want to sell your item/service. These locations are divided into districts and cities. Assigning the location is mandatory, as the buyers need to find items from their area, which can avoid unnecessary travel or delivery charges. 


Step 4: Add as much detail as you can.

Now that you’re all set, you can add the information about what you need to sell. Give a suitable, brief title, and include a description that includes keywords and information that your potential buyers might be interested in. Remember, more details mean more responses! You can then add other information such as price, contact information, and negotiability. Always make sure your information is true and accurate.


Step 5: Add great photos to your ad.

One of the most vital pieces of information you can provide for your users is pictures of what you’re selling. Pictures can give a clear idea of the appearance of your item, therefore ensure you upload high-quality images taken under good lighting and with a decent camera or smartphone. You can also upload multiple pictures from different angles. More pictures mean more views!
