There are two product types listed down below. You can only choose one of them. Antiques are cultural products that were produced by someone else in the past. They need to be authentic Antiques, not fake; we will ask for verification questions for the authenticity of the Antiques. You must produce handicraft products or be a handicraft distributor getting products from real handicraft designers. We will also require verification on Handicrafts; for further verification information, click here.
Suggested: Tell about the product and mention where it's from, and the materials used to make it. There is no mandatory requirement for this section.
Product Tags (Very Important)
Product tags are essential for your items to be appropriately identified and increase purchases. There are four types of tags (Verification, Regions, Centuries, and Periods); read all separate sections in great detail.
Verification (Mandatory for both Antiques and Handicraft)
There are two tags for verification; Verified and Unverified. When you list a product, it's MANDATORY to select either one of these. Initially, every store will only have the option of choosing the "Unverified" tag; you will not see the option of the "Verified" tag. If we verify your item, we will change the "Unverified" tag to the "Verified" tag manually from our system. Later if your store becomes a trusted store, we will give you the option to choose the "Verified" tag when listing a product.
Reigons (Mandatory for both Antiques and Handicraft)
Choosing regions is vital to make the customer experience for the seller better if you are unsure which regions encompass what countries look at our map at culturexpo.ca for reference.
Centuries (Mandatory for Antiques)
Choosing centuries is vital to make the customer experience for the seller better. If you are selling an Handicraft item you can ignore this tag completely but it is crucial for Antiques.
Pre 12th Century
Periods (Mandatory for Antiques)
Choosing time periods is vital to make the customer experience for the seller better. If you are selling an Handicraft item you can ignore this tag completely but it is crucial for Antiques.

It's crucial to enter the correct weight (approximate) of the product so the approximate shipping price can be calculated for the buyer.
Regardless of your country of origin, set all prices in CAD (Canadian Dollars). This is because we don't want your product prices to be fluctuating.
SKU: This is the amount of the product you have in storage.
Barcode: You can skip this.
Track Inventory: There are two options on this label. "Don't track Inventory" means that even if you don't have any of the product in your stock, the product won't show up as out of stock, and the buyer will be able to order it. If you use the option "Track This Products Inventory," it means if you have 0 in stock, the buyer wouldn't be able to purchase this item.
