How it Works

Everyone is a Seller!

You don’t need to be a tech genius to be a seller. Whether you have hundreds of items to sell or a few per year, you can get started in minutes. Target your listings locally with in-person pickup and local delivery or reach our global community with domestic and international shipping.

Set Up Your Own Store

Every member gets a personalized store. Get started by completing your store profile. Listing on Apartment Therapy Marketplace is free! Promoting your listing moves it to the top of all listings and re-includes it in our weekly digest.

List to Your Heart’s Content

You can also create a listing via our website, or iPhone app. Your listings will display in your store, our local listings and weekly digest to your neighbors.

Make It Beautiful, Price to Sell

Upload multiple big photos, write a clear title and description with all the juicy details. Add descriptive keywords to show up in relevant searches. Set a fixed price or best offer. You can also trade, rent or give it away for free.

Target Locally, or Globally

Apartment Therapy Marketplace works on proximity by calculating the distance between the buyer and your listings. Enter the address where the item is physically located (it’s private!) and select the delivery method—in-person pickup, local delivery or shipping.

You’re In Control

Publish your listings when you’re ready to sell or save as draft to finish later. Your listings won’t expire, so close them when you want or promote them to move them to the top of all listings. You can edit your listings at anytime.
