Do I print my own tags and how?
Yes, you print your own tags. They print 10 to a page.
How should I set the price of my items?
Items are priced in increments of $1. Some items can be grouped together to sell more efficiently. If you have an item that you think should only be $1, group it with other similar items and price them as one item. Example: If you have 5 items for which you want $1 each, group the 5 items together and sell the group for $5. When setting the price of the items, price them for what you think would be a great price if you bought it second-hand. Think of garage sale prices but a little bit better. Remember, you will be selling your items along with many other sellers that may sell exactly the same item. For more information on prices, click HERE.
