How do I upload images?
When you are adding your items to the site you will need to add photo's to promote your items. You will see the photo upload form at the bottom of the page. We do ask you to keep your image size to a maximum of 4MB, if you are unsure of how to check your image size then right click on the thumbnail of the image within your computer and scroll down to 'Properties'. It will give you the size of the image. Try to re-size it without making it too small, we need your pictures to be no more than 4MB.
Is it essential that I include a photograph of my item?
It is not essential that you include a photograph of your item. However, it does make it easier for buyers to see what is for sale and will obviously assist your selling potential if pictorial guides are provided alongside a detailed and helpful description of the item.
How do I price my item?
You have the advantage of setting your own price for your items - this is not an auction! However, we do encourage members to be realistic when pricing items. Check other sales for any similar items that may help to give you an idea of value - but always remain fair. If your item does not sell within one month, we recommend you consider lowering the price.
Can I change the description of my item once listed?
You will be able change any of the details that appear on your listed items, simply by logging in and going to account settings. This will show all the items that you have for sale. By choosing 'Edit Item' you may alter any part of your listing. Don't forget to complete the process by selecting submit changes when you have finished making the changes!
How can I remove items that I no longer wish to display?
Log on using your User ID and password, then go to Account Settings to access your full list of items for sale. Simply find the item you wish to remove and select delete.
How do I send my item once sold?
It is recommended that you send your item via recorded delivery (or the equivalent in your area), so don't forget to include the price of postage in the sale price, as this cannot be added later! For assistance on how to best pack your items, please click on Postage & Packaging .
When calculating postage & handling costs - does this include overseas?
Your postage costs should be included in the price for your country of origin. When listing an item for sale you will be asked to enter the item price, as well as the domestic postage price, in the relevant boxes. For shipping abroad you will be invited to enter an international postage cost in a separate box and this will appear next to the total of the item in brackets (identified as International Shipping Surcharge). If a buyer from abroad purchases your item you will need to add the cost of international shipping to your final price.
*We recommend that you clarify whether you are willing to post abroad and if so, the added element of international postage costs.
Are there any imports or export restrictions I should be aware of?
Generally there are few or no import/export restrictions on second-hand clothing. Within the UK, customs and excise require a packing list for contents of parcels being sent to and from abroad - however, if you are in any doubt, advice should be sought from an official body within your jurisdiction.
May I post brand new items on The Site?
The Site welcomes new and second hand items.
What happens if the item is lost in the post?
It is recommended that all items be sent via recorded delivery, or the equivalent in your jurisdiction. It is further recommended that private sellers offer an insurance policy as added peace of mind for buyers. This is purely at the discretion of buyers and sellers and should be negotiated during the purchase process. buyMYheels is unable to accept responsibility for any item lost in the post that is the result of a sale between a private seller and buyer. Once a seller has expressed interest it is important to notify them of any changes. If any dispute is entered into after a sale this may affect your positioning.

How do I pay by PayPal?
If a seller has requested payment by PayPal only, you will need a Paypal account in order to fulfill the financial obligation.

Please check the payment requirements of a seller before agreeing to a purchase. As long as both the buyer and seller have Paypal accounts - all you need to do is to simply follow the online instructions within the Checkout Process to complete this method of payment.
