NOTE Image File Uploads: Maximum file upload size is 10MB (10485760bytes). Only file types with the following extensions are supported: gif, jpeg, jpe, jpg, bmp, png. The system resizes all images to a maximum of 800pixels on the longer side, so resizing your images before uploading will make for faster upload times.

Step 5 - Listing extras:
Here you are shown any additional extra features available for your listing. The associated prices are displayed. Click "Next Step" to continue.

If you have a storefront subscription, this is where you will allocate your storefront category to your listing. This is separate from the original listing category.

Step 6 - Check out:
Here you get to review any costs associated with your listing. If there are no costs, you are presented with a $0 value and you can just select the "checkout" button to submit your listing for approval. If you have more listings to create, click "Add another listing" to start the process again and add more items to your cart.

If you have more listings to create, click "Add another listing" to start the process again and add more items to your cart. This reduces the number of PayPal transactions you need to do if payment is required.

Checkout

If you have associated costs, you will be asked to make payment via PayPal if there is no credit in your account. If you have previously added funds to your account, you can use the "account balance" as payment method instead.

Select payment if applicable

When your listing is complete, you are presented with the following confirmation screen.

Please note that all listings need to be approved by an admin before they are published as live. Although this process can take up to 24hrs depending on when your listing is submitted, normally they are approved much faster. You will be notified via email when your listing has been approved and is live.
