Make sure the background behind the item you intend to sell will not spoil the details or distort the appearance of the item. Take as many pictures as you see fit, but select only four to eight pictures for uploading. In most cases, five pictures should be sufficient.
- Provide accurate information about the status of the item you are selling. A fake advertisement is against the law.
- Make sure your selling price is realistic and in line with the current market value.

V. Selling and purchasing antiques online
Collectibles, such as furniture or works of art have a high value due to their age or quality. An antique is any work of art, furniture, decorative object, and similar items created or manufactured in the previous century or is at least 100 years ago under U.S. customs law.
Antiquity refers to the ancient past, especially the classical period of human civilizations. A chair from 1900 is antique whereas Roman ruins are ancient. It is a good idea to consult with the appropriate government authorities where the item of sale is located before buying any antique or ancient item. In many countries, the export of these items without a license constitutes a criminal offense.
VI. Selling and purchasing animals online
When shopping for pets and animals online, it is important to be aware of fake or inaccurate descriptions. Make sure to check what the seller is telling you. Start by comparing available resources to see if the description fits. Unknowingly, you may have bought an animal that was bred with the intention of making a quick sale for a high profit and transported hundreds of kilometers without proper care. Please remember: By shopping from untrustworthy and insensitive sellers, you support their unfair, unethical, and sometimes illegal business practices.
Please think about the welfare of the animal before you commit to a transaction and consider the following:
- How much free space do you have
- How much time can you devote to hygiene, exercise, and training
- How much will the food, housing, and veterinary care cost
- Where to place your pet while you are traveling e.g. a hotel or other suitable accommodation
- Whether the pet suffers from hereditary health problems, which may translate into high fees for veterinary care
- Whether you need a permit to import the animal
- Make sure to check the relevant laws when importing or exporting breeding stock
Caveat: Illegal breeders will be deleted from our website and reported to the relevant state authorities. All users are expected to act responsibly.

VIII. Selling and purchasing Real Estate online
Traditional real estate brokerage is both time-consuming and costly. Online real estate trading, on the other hand, helps reduce the amount of time and money spent on real estate trading as users have modern tools at their disposal to help them efficiently search and market real estate.
Online real estate trading involves publishing information about residential houses, commercial property, and agricultural land that are intended for rent or sale. In this section, we offer a few tips to consumers who are looking to buy or rent real estate.
For a safe Real Estate transaction
As with other online transactions, there are certain risks that are involved when trading real estate over the internet. Buyers and sellers must increasingly take into account the possibility that the information provided may be insufficient or inaccurate. Online real estate transactions are not governed by the criteria that homeowners are required to meet when placing their real estate on the market. Some information about these estates may not be accurate and may lack important details. The final cost and the pictures of the real estate item could also be misleading. Sometimes, the same property may be disclosed multiple times in an attempt to obtain money from these transactions without the fraudulent seller having any connection to the property.
When uncertain, get in touch with a reputable Real Estate agent
One of the main differences between traditional and online ways of doing real estate is often the deletion of an intermediary such as a broker or real estate agent. However, if you are not 100% sure or you have doubts about your abilities to process the sale or the purchase real estate we recommend that you contact a reputable real estate agency and let experts sell or buy the property on your behalf.
