In this guide, we will show you how to publish auctions and fixed-price ads on Tradera.
Auctions are published with a start price and will run for a set amount of time specified by the seller, the buyer with the highest bid at the end of the set time period wins the auction.
Fixed-price ads work just like an auction, but instead of buyers placing bids, the product will be put up using the price-field called "Buynow", which is a static price. Fixed-price ads will always be published with a duration of 30 days.
Before you can publish an auction on Tradera, you need:
- A Tradera account:
- A Sello account: after creating a Tradera account, login here.
- Products in Sello, these can be created:
When the account, connection, and products are taken care of, you need to make sure that your products have all the required information, this includes a description, name, category, price, shipping cost, and carrier, etc.
Sello will tell you if your products are missing something when you try and publish them.

Good to know:
- When you publish an auction, we will decrease the quantity of the product. We do this to prevent overselling while the auction is active.
- If you don't make any changes in the outbox prior to publishing, the product will be published as a fixed-price ad by default.
- You can see all starting and ending auctions using the calendar in Sello, read more here.
