Become a Minerfy seller
Looking to sell a few of your precious gemstones or minerals? Or maybe you have a few pieces of jewellery that you crafted with your own hands? At Minerfy, we offer sellers the perfect opportunity to sell everything from loose gemstones all the way to art and jewellery that takes advantage of the beautiful colours and textures that gemstones have to offer. Our system was designed with ease-of-use in mind, giving sellers a user-friendly dashboard where they can manage their ads and auctions with ease, process orders, and offer their customers with support when needed.
Step 1: Sign up as a seller
Becoming a seller at Minerfy is quick and easy – all you need to do is create an account on our platform, and you will instantly get your very own user profile, along with access to our easy-to-use dashboard. The dashboard is where you will post ads, list auctions, process orders, and even communicate with buyers who are interested in the products you have to offer them.
Step 2: Configure your ads
After registering and verifying your account, log in to our user dashboard to start your journey as a seller with Minerfy. Setting up your first listing is easy. Select your desired Ad Package to purchase depending on how many items you wish to list. We have two types of listings that you can choose from, each with pros and cons.
- Standard Ads – List your minerals, crystals, jewellery, artwork, and other items Your standard ad will run for a period of 365 days, or until you mark it as sold or manually delete the ad from your side. You can also utilise our promotional tools, such as to bump your ad to the top of the list for a small fee.
- Auction – When you list an auction, you get to set a starting price and potential buyers can then bid on the product you are selling. This is a great way to get more out of a valuable piece you wish to sell. The highest bidder at the end of the auction will win the bid and be able to buy the product from you at the final amount that was reached. Auction ads last for ten days on our platform.
You will also be presented with a range of additional options that you can use to customise your ads in order to maximise exposure and get your items sold faster. After placing a standard ad, select an upgrade option in order to get more buyers to notice the products that you are selling. We have a variety of upgrade options that you can choose from, all perfectly developed to help maximise your exposure on the Minerfy platform:
- Use the Bump Up Ad to get your ad to the top of the list in its category.
- Our Highlight Ad option gives your ad a special highlighted appearance while buyers are browsing through products, ensuring they are unable to miss what you have to offer them.
- If you have something that you need to sell fast, then rely on our Urgent Ad option, adding a special red box with the word “URGENT’ in it, drawing more attention from buyers.
Step 3: Sell and communicate with your buyers
Once your ad goes live, potential buyers will start to respond to your ads or place bids on your auction. Be sure to respond quickly to any requests that are made to your ads and to answer any questions that buyers may ask when they are interested in bidding on your auction. This will help to ensure buyers view you as trustworthy and improve your chances of a successful sale. When a buyer is interested, simply make appropriate payment arrangements, and you are good to proceed with the sale.
