Question mark

Questions. We love ‘em. When somebody has a question for us here at Paper Shop, we know that they’re either already advertising with us or thinking of giving us a try. We’re happy to help with and all inquiries, and we’ve found that a number of them are, well, frequently asked questions. Here’s where we take some time to talk about them.

It might be a living room set. Maybe it’s parts from a classic car. Perhaps it’s a collection of some sort. No matter the circumstances, it’s not all that unusual for us to run an ad that lists a number of items for one price.

Because of the way commission ads are set up, we must list one total price for the all items in that type of ad. Sometimes it’s as simple as selling the items as a package deal. Other times, though, the seller might be willing to sell the items piece by piece – and there’s a pretty neat way to handle that. By listing a price for all the items and adding “or will separate” afterwards, we’re able to charge for the parts of the ad as they are sold.

Example: a seller has 300 vinyl records, and wants to sell them at different prices. When we include an asking price of, say, $500 All, or will separate, the seller can report the items as they are sold and we’ll charge the commission accordingly. If some of the records were sold for $50, we’d charge the $5. commission on the sold stuff and readjust the ad to only include the remaining items.

You know we’re always here to help, and it never hurts to inquire about the most effective way to advertise (and sell!) you items.
