This guide will walk you through how to create product listings for the Cratejoy Marketplace.
Cratejoy is transitioning Marketplace Listing from a per-store basis to a per-product basis. This is a big change that is designed to give you more control over how your products are presented on Cratejoy’s Marketplace.
We're rolling out this feature out to small groups of stores incrementally, and allowing sellers to control their transition to make sure their products are represented the way they intend.
With our previous Listings, sellers had to represent all of their products with a single set of descriptions, categories, and images.
With Product Listings, sellers can now write clear descriptions with specific details about a single product, classify different products under different categories, and customize what images and the order of images that are shown in the image carousel specific to each product.
When will I get Product Listings?
We’ll be releasing this new feature in phases to all of our sellers based on the unique needs among Marketplace sellers.
When your account gets upgraded, we will send more communications to you.

How to Create Product Listings
If you have been selected to convert your listing, then you have new features to check out in your seller portal!
1. In the Seller Portal, click the new Product Listings tab which appears under the Products tab. 2. Click the "Create New Listing" button.
You'll be presented with a new listing form that should look familiar from your current Listing form with the exception of a new Product Selection at the top.
3. Select the product to create a listing
Select your product and then fill out the rest of the form. (If you'd like to learn more about filling out your listing: read this).
You can save your progress with the "Save" button, or once you've provided all the information press "Publish". Pressing "Publish" at this time simply lets us know you're ready to convert your Store Listing to a set of Product Listings.
Once you have Published at least 1 Product Listing and have a Listing for your default Product, you'll see an "Enable Product Listings" button on your product listings home page.
Your default Product is the first product in your list on the “Product” tab if you’ve set the order of that list. If you haven’t set your products order in that list, your default product will be the first visible product. You must create a listing for your default Product in order to enable Product Listings.
Click "Enable Product Listings" to enable Product Listings (this will hide your old store level listing).
After you click that button a message will pop up asking if you are ready to submit your Product Listings for approval. Click the "Submit for Approval" button and your store will be switched over.
