Recently, we published a post titled “How to Open an Armadio Closet.” Now we’d like to show you how to add items to your closet. We’ll also touch on how to price clothes and accessories, provide some tips on uploading photo images and a couple of thoughts on adding pizzas to your closet.
Let’s begin by signing into your Armadio account using the username and password you selected. Fill in the username and password in the upper right hand corner of the page, then click the Sign In button.
If you haven’t created a closet yet, then begin by joining armadio. Here is a link to the post we mentioned above: How to Open an Armadio Closet
Now that you’re signed in go to the top menu, the one with a light tan colored bar and select Dashboard
Your seller’s Dashboard has several features, but let’s keep our focus on adding items to your closet. As you can see on the screen shot below your next “mouse trick” is to click on Add an Item. Please go ahead and do that.
Naming your item is the first step. Give your item a name that will attract buyers and then select a category from the drop down menu – what could be easier?
On the next screen you are provided with a series of drop down menus, which you can use to describe the item (Note: Not all drop downs apply to all items). Select the categories appropriate for your item and then fill in the text boxes to add information and give your closet a little pizzas. Example: “This pretty blue dress is just the ticket for a night on the town!”
Last two tasks to complete this page: First, price the item. Pricing is not always easy. We suggest you start with the original retail price and then considering age, trendiness, and overall condition discount the retail price.to make it attractive to buyers.
Second, click on the Save & Manage Photos> button. This will advance you to the page where you can upload images (up to 5) of your item.
Uploading photos is the final step in the process.and one of the most important, because as we all know a picture is worth a thousand words. Use images to sell your item. Photograph it in good light and show it from different points a view (e.g., back and front on a hanger, and perhaps modeling it).. Photos are one of the best ways to give your armadio closet pizzas.
To upload photos use the Click to Upload Photos button and follow the instructions on the popup screen. Photos must be correctly sized (if you used your phone camera you’re probably OK, but if you used a more sophisticated digital camera you may need to re-size large photos before uploading - Maximum size is 1000 x 1000;
You may upload from 1 to 5 photos for each item you sell. Upload your new photos and then you can choose the order to show them. Here’s a screen shot of the upload popup to add a photo;simply click on the Browse button to search your photos and make a selection. When you have finished uploading your photos, click on the DONE button and your item insertion is complete!
Check to make sure the order is correct, that is, the photo you want to be displayed as your “Main” or primary one is marked as such and the rest of the photos are in the order you want them displayed. Once you are happy with the order simply click Save Photos and you’ll be taken back to your dashboard.
Now you’re ready to upload another item!
