If you see the term “MY ITEMS”, click that to be brought directly to your dashboard. Or, if you do not see “my Items” you’ll see “SIGN IN”. Click that to be brought to a gateway and enter your email and password (the same that you used when you first registered) to be brought to your dashboard.
When you are on your dashboard, you will see a green button labeled "ADD ITEM". Click this button, which will take you to a page to add an item. Your item description may be any length and you may upload an unlimited number of photos of each item. You must choose at least one category, but as many as three categories, for each item. If you decide to change or remove a category you have chosen, simply "uncheck" it. Do not be concerned about the order of items in your booth as you upload. You will be able to move them around within your booth after you have entered them.
You will upload images directly from your computer. Photos must be in JPG format, under 10MB in size, and with vertical orientation. Photos should be at least 800 pixels so they enlarge clearly when clicked. The first image you upload becomes the feature photo and the rest will appear below the feature photo when a person is on the item page looking for more details about the item. You may move the order of the photos by the “drag and drop” method.
To visualize the placement of each item within your booth, think of the booth as a grid with 3 items per row. The top left space will contain the first item and the bottom right space will contain the last item on the page. You may move the items into different positions using the “drag and drop” method.
