To add your listings you should first create an account, or if you already have such you should log in. Click my account link in the upper right of page and you will be taken to the administrative page.

Use 'manage shop' button to add new items.

Give your item a descriptive Title. What would buyers search for to find your item? Add the most searchable words at the front of your title.

Each item can be categorized based on the subject it belongs to, genre and media used to create it. Make sure to put each work in the proper category, so customers could easily land on your shop when they search a specific term.  You can also create your personal categories that you want this shop item to belong to in addition to those already provided.

The Description is the most important part for you listing, so try to be more descriptive. Make sure to include the size, materials used, how it was made, and any unique features. 

The dimensions required are in inches. Tags help shoppers find your item when they search on Allartclassic, so use as much tags as possible.

Now add photos. You can upload up to 6 images per item. We recommend you use all six images to help shoppers get a better feel for your item. The images must not exceed 2MB in size, larger Images  may not upload correctly.

Last step is entering the price of your item and shipping cost. In this  field you can also give any special requirments or conditions.  We also encourage you to set the processing time - length of time needed to create the item or if already in stock the time to prepare it for shipping.

The listing is now available to shoppers. Tell potential buyers about your new item and share it on Facebook or Twitter.

Note: it may take a up to 24 hours for listings to be indexed into Search results and categories. 

The user is personally responsible for images and other content published, as well as messages and comments. Allartclassic administrator team has the right, but not an obligation to edit, remove or move items to the right category on user's behalf. Administrator can do so with or without notice.

You set up your shop, you have a great product and you have been working hard on your photos, but there is still one more thing you need to do before your sales start rolling in.

You must have a list of the keywords and write your description with these keywords in mind. Remember that your tags are keywords used to find your shop, but your most important tags and materials should also be scattered throughout your descriptions so that internet searches (through Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc) can easily find you.

You can copy and paste URLs in your descriptions so they can function as a hyperlink. Use this to your advantage. If your visitor has read your item description and is not ready to make a purchase, don’t let them float away to another website, Allartclassic shop or back to their search results. Instead, give them a link to learn more about you, see your entire shop, check out your policies or even a link to send you a conversation.

In the TITLE field introduce your item in two sentences, one reiterating the product title and a second one that adds a bit more detail.

In the DESCRIPTION field list all the facts : Category and color, item's measurements and the materials used to create it.

Finally add an extra sentence of two letting the customer know about your shipping charge, your generous return or exchange policy.

There is no limit, you can upload as many images as you want. There are however certain requirements about the image file type and size. Only jpg images can be uploaded and file size should not exceed 2MB.
