Selling on Ricardo

I have googled this and it led me back here and none of the threads seem to help with my very basic query...

I can't figure out how to put an ad up on Ricardo? I feel like I must be missing something really obvious

If anyone would be kind enough to explain step by step I would be grateful!

You need to sign up for a Ricardo account first.

Have you got one?

Re: Selling on Ricardo

and to activate your account, you will need a code which they send to you via post (so you will need a physical address to sign up) once you sign up.

Re: Selling on Ricardo

Let's say I'm going to sell my used jogging pram:

Step 0:
Click on "Verkaufen"
https://www.ricardo.ch/

Step 1:
Then click on "Kind & Baby", "Kinderwagen", "Jogger"
https://www.ricardo.ch/verkaufen/ver...rkaufen&SSL=ON

Step 2:
Click on "Gebraucht"
Product description can be copied from another listing (Title, Subtitle)
Load photos also at this step.

Step 3:
Set the price, payment type and selling period.

Step 4:
How the product will be delivered, including pick-up, and availability.

Step 5:
Promotion page (just extra costs)

Step 6:
Overview. Need to logon to see how your sales page looks.

Re: Selling on Ricardo

Yes, it is quite tricky when one first starts but practice makes perfect and the more one uses Ricardo, the easier it becomes obviously.
You will be advised if and when someone makes a bid, with follow-up subsequent bids. However, if your item does not sell, Ricardo will automatically advise you. There is an additional option if you would like the item relisted and if so, how many times. Good luck - it's definiately worth it.

There is a very small fixed fee for listing but it is minimal.
Hope this helps
