Product listing is super easy. We know it will not take you time to figure it out, however, the following steps will guide you through the process quickly:
--If you list products through the website (https://www.peppaca.com), you should log into your seller account first by clicking “login” on the right upper corner of the website, then click the “Product” on the left menu bar, and then click “Add new”. On this new-product-adding page, you need to fill in some fields such as price, product title, product details, product image, categories, lead time, shipping, etc. You can also add several customized hands-on product property options that fit your listed products. Once you have done your listing, please click “List Product”, you will see your product in the “Pending Approval” section. It will be shown on the “Listing Online” section after our Peppaca approver approved the listing.
--If you list products through Peppaca Seller app, you can log into the app and then find the “Edit and List” navigation button at the bottom or top of the app menu depending on the OS of the mobile device used. Then the process is similar to the website.
There're two shipping options during the listing process by sellers: Non-free shipping and Free shipping, with Non-free shipping as the default option.
--Non-Free shipping option: As a seller, you will receive the shipping quote request through email AFTER the buyers place an order. You need to provide the shipping costs that correspond to different delivery time frames. The buyer will select one of the shipping options and make a total payment for the order accordingly. You can ensure that you do not loose any money on shipping.
--Free shipping option: You will not receive the shipping quotes request from the buyer after an order is placed. You will receive the payment immediately.

Considering the uniqueness of handmade products, some creations are Make-to-Order. You can put lead time while listing a product. Lead time lets buyers know how long the order will take to make and be ready to ship out.
For example, after receiving an order, if it takes 10 days for you to make it before the shipment, the lead time of this product should be put as 10 days.
