Only a limited amount of listings can be featured on Exchange at a time. One to three high-quality listings from each category are featured at a time, with a few appearing on the home page. The stores that are featured are rotated often in order to give sellers with quality listings exposure to the thousands of buyers who use Exchange each day.
How are featured listings selected?
Featured listings are not chosen manually. Exchange uses a tool that automatically selects top listings to place in featured spots on the marketplace.
This tool analyzes your listing for information that is important to our buyers and takes into account the number of buyers who are viewing and engaging with your listing.
How to improve your chances of getting featured
All sellers hope to get their listing featured, but with limited space, not every listing can be promoted. However, there are changes that you can make to your listing that will greatly improve your chances of getting featured.
It all comes down to creating a quality listing that will spark the attention of buyers. Here are some things you should do:
- Include at least 280 words in your listing's description. It's important to use the description to accurately describe your business and reason for selling. If you're looking for help thinking of what to include in your listing's description, try reading our article on what to include in your listing.
- Try not to abandon order fulfillment & usual business operations as soon as you list. Keep your sales up if you can.
- Have a custom domain registered with your store and include this in the sale.
- Let buyers know all other assets you're including. This can be social media accounts, product photos, personal support after the sale etc.
- Upload quality photos to your listing. A screenshot of your storefront is great, but uploading additional screenshots is even better. Here's how to upload more photos.
Featured stores are updated each day to display new high-quality listings. Exchange also sends a weekly email promoting a handful of curated listings that we believe will appeal to what buyers are currently searching for. We do not currently have the option to pay to have your listing promoted, getting featured is free.
