listing creation & best practices

 

STEP 1:  UPLOAD

Have all your photos ready to go before you select your files. You must have at least one photo per product.

You know those "prove you are not a bot" picture matching captchas? We use a very similar technology, so if we can't easily identify your skincare, makeup and beauty products, it's best to include more than one picture, and/or include a description.

You will be able to upload your pictures from many popular options such as:

• Your computer

• A direct link

• Facebook

• Google Drive

• Google Photos

• Instagram

• Dropbox

• Box

• OneDrive 

A preview of makeup, skin care and beauty product images uploaded to Glou Marketplace. Along with the photo, there are details of the file name and the file size.
 

STEP 1 TIPS:  PRODUCT PHOTO

In most cases one photo is enough. You can call it a one and done situation when the product is

• New

   AND

• Clearly identifiable product name and brand

The end of a lipstick showing the brand name, shade and other product details. And a green check mark on the top right corner.

More than one photo is necessary if:

There are no words on the product in the picture

   OR

• Used

   OR

• Swatched

STEP 2:  LISTING

Each photo uploaded will show up as its own listing. 

A listing of makeup and skin care products uploaded for sell on Glou Marketplace. Each beauty product listed has a photo, and a data fields for price and description. There are also buttons to show if the beauty product is "New", "Swatched" or "Used".

To combine products together click on the edit button for merge options.

The picture you click-on will be the main image; the others will be the supplementary ones.

A red line circled around the "Edit" button to show how to merge listing of beauty products on Glou Marketplace.

The image indicated by the star is the main image.

You can check off the other pictures that belong to that product/listing.

A photo listing of 6 makeup and skin care products. One skincare product is starred. One beauty product has a check mark, and the others are not checked. Instructions on how to merge is provided on the top and a "Merge" button at the bottom.

The 10 photos uploaded are now sorted into the 5 products/listings. Now, all you need to do is answer:

1) Selling price

2) Product condition (New/Swatched/Used)

3) Description if applicable. (See next section)

4) Product size (Sample/Mini/Full-Size)

5 beauty product listings with price and description data fields populated with the correct information for each item.
 

STEP 2 TIPS:  DESCRIPTIONS AND WHAT TO DISCLOSE

It's always great to include a brief description but, in most cases this field is optional. The best way to decide if you should include a few words is by putting yourself in the buyers' shoes. What would you want to know?

The description field is mandatory for: 

• Used products (buyers like to know about the usage levels)

• Identifying shade, scent, or other non-obvious variation

• Products with expiry dates (typically found on sunscreens, acne treatments, sheet masks)

 

STEP 3:  CONFIRMATION

This is where you should review your listings and make sure everything is accurate.

We also break down the fees we charge so you know exactly how much to expect to make on each product.

STEP 3 TIPS:  GLOU'S APPROVAL PROCESS

We are continuously working on making the approval process even faster and more accurate for our users.

Here is some insight into what would prevent a listing from going live:

Missing description according to our listing guidelines

• Non-original photos (taken from another website, or stock photo)

• You are selling an unusual quantity of the same product (this flags our system as potential counterfeits)

• Picture is too blurry/low resolution

Glou will reach out to you if there is a problem with your listing and let you know what to do. Otherwise, you should expect listings to be live within 24 hours.
