After selling your item, use the 'End Listing' button above the first post message, near the 'Reply to this topic' button.
Using this will automatically lock your topic so nobody else can add further replies. It also adds a 'Sold' or 'No Longer Available' tag to the title.
Go to the For Sale & Items Offered forum board. Here you can search through the items for sale which other forum members have listed. We also have a separate Family Room Classifieds board for listing baby, toys and other family related items.
To create your own listing, press the green Start new topic button near the top.
You will then be taken to a 'Create New Topic' page where you can enter the details of the item (see screenshots below). Here are the steps:
- The title of the item. Its a good idea to include the price here, for example 'Ikea Desk - £20'
- The description. Its a good idea to mention which area it can be collected from (e.g. East Dulwich, Peckham)
- Attach a photo by pressing the 'Add Files' button. If you are using a phone, this will give you an option to take a photo with your camera, or choose a photo you've already taken.
- Press Submit topic.
Your item is now listed. If anyone is interested, they will send you a private message. You will receive an email notification if someone does, and there will be an alert displayed when you next visit the forum.
