My Store

The auction system allows sellers to operate their own private Stores. They can customize the appearance of the store and the categories used within it and include detailed information about their business and their stock.

Free Store up to 3 items

Basic Store up to 10 items,

Medium Store up to 50 items

Advanced Store up to 100 items

Expert Store up to 500 items
