buyers see. Short catchy words work well and make good punch line. Do not try to describe your product here. Leave

buyer will explore your listing further. So, its importance can never be over emphasized.

Be truthful. Treat them as you would want to
be treated. Should something goes wrong, do let your buyers know had happened even though it may be your fault.

and it will go a long way for anyone in business. Years of hard earned reputation and goodwill can be destroyed and
disappeared overnight due to dishonesty.
