The best thing to do is take a few shots of the item so you can have a good variety and angles to post, and that way your viewer will have a lots of images to look at and they’ll get a better idea of what they are looking at.
Make sure the lighting is good in the room and you take a few shots that highlight all areas of the item. If it’s an outfit with a few items, like a dress and sweater; then make sure to include all those into the photos or take individual shots of them so they can all be presented for the viewer.
Tips: A) Clean your camera lens – any fingerprints will make the shot blurry B) Take the picture in a room with natural light and 3) Use a natural background to help your item stand out!

It’s important that you select the right category so that people will find you in the correct area. Just like regular shopping. Then hit next step.
Step 3: Tokens
Select the amount of tokens you think that the item is worth. A token is not real money and it’s up to you to decide how many tokens to ask for. What do you think it’s worth? For example, if you paid $30 for the item, then use 30 tokens as your benchmark.
