There are 2 location sections to complete

Drop down box
This will be displayed on your listing.

  1. Select from the drop down box.
  2. You can add multiple locations to one listing but if you would like each location to be searchable by the map, or to have their own address, you will need to create a separate listing for each location.
  3. Multiple locations can look messy in grid view so it is advisable to have a maximum of 3.
  4. If you are located across the country, please select ‘nationwide’.
  5. If products can (also) be distributed in the post or via courier, tick the box for Post/Courier in the location section.

Contact Information
  1. You have the option to state your phone number and email address.
  2. Listing your website is essential. No listings will be published without a valid website.
  1. If you do not want your address to be visible, leave the address box blank.
  2. When entering your address it might come up with a pre-set address but you can amend it. The address should pinpoint your location on the map. You can also move the location icon on the map (please note, this might change the address).
  3. You can also pinpoint your address on the map by entering the latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
    To find these co-ordinates go to or and enter your postcode.
  4. If you do not want the map to be shown click on hide map.
    This is important because if you haven’t inputted an address or hidden the map, the map will still be shown but with a default location (currently Buckingham Palace!)
