Creating a listing

Crosslist allows you to create listings using any browser on any device.

To create a listing, navigate to the Crosslist web application and click on the green Create button at the top left of your screen:

Now, select the marketplaces on which you want to list your product. This is important, because based on marketplaces you select, Crosslist will automatically generate the required product information fields for these marketplaces.

Proceed by filling in the required product information. Fields marked as optional are not mandatory and can be left blank. Note that during this process, you can save your listing at any point in time using the Save button at the bottom right of your screen.

Important to note is that you can also use your mobile phone to create listings. This is especially useful since it allows you to take pictures of your inventory directly using your devices’ integrated camera from within the application:

To create listings using your mobile phone, you’ll need to install the Crosslist mobile application. Please refer to this guide on how to install the mobile application.

That’s it! You’ve now created a listing within Crosslist. You’re now ready to post the listing on the marketplaces you’ve selected.

Posting a listing

To post a listing, Crosslist requires that you have a laptop or desktop computer with Google Chrome and our extension installed. As of today, it is not possible to post listings using mobile devices.

You can post your listings using two different methods:

  1. One by one
  2. In bulk

One by one

With this method, you can post a single listing to the marketplaces you’ve selected previously.

To post a single listing, navigate to the listing detail page by clicking on the specific listing in the listing overview. Afterwards, click the Post button at the bottom right of your screen. It looks like this:

Alternatively, you can also click on the Post button available in the listing overview:

List New Inventory - Post From Overview

After clicking the button, your browser will automatically open new tabs, one tab for each marketplace you’ve selected. In these tabs, Crosslist will automatically complete the listing form with the correct information.

Navigate to each tab and carefully review the listing form for errors or additionals fields that you wish to complete. As you will see, most fields will be completed by Crosslist already.

You can now finalize the listing process by clicking the relevant List, Submit or Post button for each of the marketplaces.

In bulk

You can also post listings in bulk directly from the listing overview. To do so, select the listings that you want to post using the tick box next to each listing:

List New Inventory - Bulk Posting

Afterwards, click the Bulk post listings button at the top right of your screen. This will prompt a pop-up where you can select the marketplaces on which you want to list your products:

List New Inventory - Bulk Posting Marketplaces

Select the marketplaces on which you want to list your products, and then click the Post button to proceed.

After clicking the button, your browser will automatically open new tabs, one tab for each marketplace and product. In these tabs, Crosslist will automatically complete the listing form with the correct information.

Navigate to each tab and carefully review the listing form for errors or additionals fields that you wish to complete. As you will see, most fields will be completed by Crosslist already.

You can now finalize the listing process by clicking the relevant List, Submit or Post button for each of the marketplaces.
