Selling clothing online is an increasing competitive market. When writing your listing it is important to make your item stand out to create interest and to attract your buyer. Including many clear and varied photos of your item is important. Using wording, in your title and description, that is likely to be searched by the buyer is just as, if not more important. These are known as keywords. A good knowledge of the item you are listing is vital in finding the keywords that are likely to attract your buyer. This is your ultimate comprehensive guide to identifying Dress Styles and the keywords you can use to describe them.
When listing your clothing items for sale on eBay using some simple measurements will a) help to sell the item and b) reduce the amount of returns you will get due to the item not fitting on receipt.
