Listing Options, to help your item stand out!

Our Listing Options consist of priority placements and attention-getting features that help to get more buyers to look at and hopefully buy on your item. When a seller elects to use Listing Options, the seller incurs a small fee at the time of listing. Listing options are non-refundable. As Gear-listings do not expire on ReelTrail, any listings options that have been paid for (even if you decide to add some later) will stay in use with that particular listing. Adventure-listings do expire, and listing options can be purchased for each listing.

Showcase Listings ($5.00 per listing)

Showcase Listings are the most powerful marketing tool our sellers can use. Showcase items are randomly displayed on our Home Page. Our Home Page is the most-visited page on Consequently, Showcase items will be seen by the largest audience of any of our Listing Options. If your item does not sell, you can relist it without paying this fee again.

Highlight ($3.00 per listing)

Make your listing stand out from others in the category listings for a small fee. This option highlights your listing in yellow to make it stand out from other listings.

Boldface Title ($2.00 per listing)

Consider using boldface text to make your item's title stand out from the others in the category listings for a small fee.

View Counter ($1.00 per listing)

A view counter keeps track of the number of times an item has been viewed since being listed. Sellers can use counters as a way to gauge interest buyers have shown in an item. They can also experiment with different item titles and upgrade features to measure the effectiveness of each variation.
