Sold an item? What to do next? It’s best practice to ship it within the time frame (handling time) that you specified in order for customers to get their package as soon as possible. Customers can rate a seller on how quickly they receive their item – up to 5 stars. As a beginner, I recommend listing items that won’t be too much of a hassle to ship (i.e. clothing, shoes, accessories like the belt above, etc). If you sold a lamp for example, it could be difficult to find a container that would fit the whole item. It would also be challenging to secure it in a way where it wouldn’t break in transit.
