Help and tips

Most popular topics

Wholesalers, manufacturers and distributors, who are searching for new markets for their products, are able to list them at Merkandi after buying the PREMIUM membership and completing the verification procedure. However, to get the most from Merkandi account, they should follow the tips from below.

1. Complete your profile and keep it up-to-date - the profile of your company at Merkandi is available to every buyer at the platform, so you should provide them with all important information about your wholesale, and the products you are offering for sale. Basically, please keep your contact information up-to-date, to avoid any problems with contacting you. To do that, just add phone numbers, email addresses, names and surnames and the languages to communicate with the members of your sales department. Next thing is the physical address of your facilities, such as a showroom, or a warehouse, and a url of your website. Another important information are payment options and delivery options, which can be found within "Wholesaler's Data” section of your account. Please choose the payment options and delivery options available for buyers, and for detailed information about them, use the text fields entitled “Additional information”. Finally, it is recommended to describe your company and products you sell.

2. List new offers regularly, keep the previous ones up-to-date - it is highly recommended to list offers as often as possible. The more offers you will list, the more buyers will contact you. Besides, each of your offers is sent within our daily newsletter with the latest products, so the more regular you are, the bigger the reach of your offers will be. Also, please do not forget about your previous offers, and update them whenever something changes (i.e. price, payment options, or the minimum to purchase).

3. Prepare good descriptions, add images - before a buyer will visit your profile, he will probably view some of your offers. Because of that, you should take a moment to create a good and reliable description of your product. Enter all important information about the wholesale lot, and don’t be afraid to mention some imperfections. After all, besides the buyers of new goods, there are also buyers, who search for used, refurbished, untested or even damaged products. Also, please avoid general statements in both the title, and the description of your offer. Be specific and reliable while describing products, use the names of the brands or models, provide buyers with basic specifications of your stock for sale, point out every important information (i.e. missing boxes, scratches or dents). A good title and description should also mention the type of the stock for sale, such as the liquidation stock, surplus stock, ex lease products etc. Another important thing is to upload the authentic pictures of the wholesale lot, whenever it is possible. The authentic pictures not only look better, but also prove, that you actually own the stock, and this is very important fact for most of the buyers.

4. Add your offers in other languages- if you do know any other languages, which are supported at Merkandi, then you should translate your offers to these languages. This will highly increase the number of potential buyers for your products. If you do not know any other language used at Merkandi, then you might try to translate your offers using Google, Yandex, Bing, or Yahoo.

To add an offer, You have to be a PREMIUM member of Merkandi, and verify Your company with us. To start verification, just upload the required documents within Your user’s account, or send them by email. As soon as the verification proccedure will be completed with a positive result, You will have Your selling options activated, and You will be able to list unlimited number of offers on Merkandi. Please remember, that it is one of the features of Your account, so when Your user’s account will expire, You will no longer have an option of listing products on the website.

To add an offer, please sign in to Your Merkandi account first. If You are already there, just click the "Add offer" button to start. Alternatively, just go to “My offers” section. Here, You will always find all of Your offers, and to add a new one, just click the “Add offer”. There are following steps of adding a new offer:

1 - Basic information

2 - Duration time

3 - Order

4 - Description

5 - Payment and delivery

6 - Images

7 - Media and files

1. Basic information

The first step includes the essential information about Your product. At first, You will have to choose the proper category and subcategory for Your wholesale lot, a grade of the items (new, used, refurbished, damaged, untested, clearance), and a country, where the stock is located. This section also includes product ID (optional, set by you), EAN, TARIC and brand. 

All required fields are marked with * (asterisk). 

2. Duration time

Set the duration time of your offer. You can choose an option from the list, or set your own date. Once the date will pass, your offer will change it's status to "archive". To reactivate it, you will need to click the "Activate" option on your offer's list.

3. Order

Detailed information about the products for sale, including minimal order, total quantity, units of measurement, prices. Please mind, that some of the fields will change for some settings (ie. if you will set the "price per request", you will not be able to fill in the price-related fields).

4. Description

Here, You will be able to enter the title, description and keywords for Your offer. If You would like to list this offer in other languages available on Merkandi, just switch between them on the top of this step, and then enter the title, description and keywords, translated to the languages You choose. Please do not list Your offer in other languages, if You are unable to translate it to these langauges. Also, please remember that the offer cannot include any of Your company information. All of the fields within this step, are meant for the information about Your product, not about Your company.

5. Payment and delivery

Set the payment options and delivery options available for your offer. Although these fields are not required, You should fill them out, because these are very important information for all potential buyers. Just remember, that if You have already set the payment options and delivery options within the “Wholesaler's data” section, You can omit this step, because buyers will see Your settings from there.

6. Images

The first image you will add will become the main image of your offer per default. To change it, just move it to the right, to replace it with another one. You are able to upload up to 7 images (JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG files, max. size 3MB)

7. Media and attachment

You can add 1 file as an attachment for your offer, i.e. pricelist, or manifest, saved as PDF, DOC, XDOC, TXT, JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG. max. size 5MB. You can also add a url of a videou file from Youtube or Vimeo.

Once all of the required fields have been completed, you can save it as a draft to submit it latter, or submit it now and go to advertising options.

You are able to increase the exposition of Your offer, by selecting the following advertising options:

  • Week's best offer on Merkandi
  • Top Offers on Merkandi
  • Highlight on Merkandi offers' list
  • Top offer in subcategory
  • Highlight in subcategory

Please remember, that prices refer to one language version of Your offer. Although this step is not required to add an offer, the advertising options always improve the visibility of the offer within Merkandi.

As a seller on Merkandi, you are able to list unlimited number of offers. Listing them regularly is a key thing to find as many buyers as possible. Moreover, the more offer you list, the more buyers will contact you. Offers are therefore a sort of advertisement of your company within Merkandi platform. Still, to get more attention from buyers, you might also consider purchasing some of the advertising options. All of the below-mentioned ads are available to buy after adding new offer. To advertise some of your previous offers, select the “advertise” option for those offers. This can be done in “My offers” section of your Merkandi account. You are able to purchase the following advertising options on Merkandi:

As You know, Merkandi is a multilingual trading platform. Every wholesaler is able to list his or her offers in all of the language versions of Merkandi, but to do that, he needs to translate them first. If the offer will not be translated to the language corresponding with the certain language version of Merkandi, then it will be blocked (more information about blocking offers: click here).

Quality and usability of each of the language versions of Merkandi, including language compliance, are the most important things for us. After all, if a buyer visits i.e. English language version of the platform, he or she expects all offers to be in English. Obviously, this applies to all other language versions of Merkandi.

One of the most important rules at Merkandi, is the language compliance. This means, that all offers within the certain language version of the platform have to be available in this language (find out more about that).

The language compliance is one of the basic rules at Merkandi. To add offer within the certain language version of Merkandi, a wholesaler has to prepare it in this particular language. If a wholesaler does not know the particular foreign language, he or she may use a translate feature of Google, Yandex or Bing. Still, if You decide to use one of these options to translate Your offer to list it in other language versions of Merkandi, please do not forget about the following things:

  1. proofread the original text, and make sure that there are no typos, missing spaces between words, or any other errors, because none of the translate featureas will be able to translate such words
  2. use simple language, avoid compound sentences
  3. If You are mentioning some brands’ names or proper nouns in the text, please double-check them. The brands’ names, or the names of products might be translated too, especially if they include common words, i.e. Always, Red Bull, Head & Shoulders, Hello Kitty. 
  4. avoid acronyms and abbreviations
  5. instead of pasting the whole text, please translate it sentence by sentence. This will improve the final quality of the translation.
  6. For the best possible result, please use English as an initial language for the translation, even if it is not Your first language.

A list of the most popular translate features:

  1. Google Translate: https://translate.google.com/
  2. Bing Translator: https://www.bing.com/translator/
  3. Yandex.Translate: https://translate.yandex.com/

In some cases, You might find out, that some of Your offers are blocked. Below You will find 3 basic reasons for that:

  1. Contact details in the offer - You are not allowed to disclose any of Your contact information in Your offers, uploaded files and images, including watermarks on the images. This applies to any information, which will help in contacting You by people, who do not have users' accounts at Merkandi. It is simply against our rules, and may result with blocking the offer.
  2. The offer has not been translated - You are allowed to list Your offers in all language versions of Merkandi, but You have to translate them first. The language used for describing the product has to be coherent with the particular language version of Merkandi.
  3. The offer is a duplicate - the particular offer can be listed only once. If You would like to list i.e. similar product or stock, then the new offer has to have it’s unique title and description. You are not allowed to copy and paste the title and description, and then list such offer as a new, different one. This applies to slightly modified offers too. Adding few more words to the description, and i.e. an ordinal number to the offer’s title is not enough to list it as a new one, next to the previous one. Please remember, that we will block duplicated offers straight-away.

Of course, we are always trying to contact our members, and ask them to modify their offers, to have them re-listed at the website. We always try to find the most convenient solution of the problems like these.

At Merkandi, every day our team of specialists cares about the sale and popularity of your offers. Thanks to this, your offers gain more visitors and have even greater reach among potential customers.

What exactly do we do when editing your offers?

  • Title and description improvement - we improve the content in your offer so that it contains more keywords, so buyers can find the products you sell. This action is also aimed at correcting content in terms of spelling, grammar, text arrangement, etc.
  • Brand completion - if you sell branded goods, the Brand field should be completed. In this way, your offer will appear on the list of offers containing products of specific brands, thereby increasing your reach.
  • Categories completion/improvement - an incorrectly selected category significantly reduces the visibility of the offer. In the case of offers that contain various goods (so-called mix pallets or joblots), adding them to many categories increases their reach. You can add up to 3 categories to each offer!
  • Other minor corrections - e.g. incomplete information about the product, details important for buyers.

The above changes are aimed at reaching the largest number of potential customers, increasing the credibility of your company through professionally prepared offers and making the goods you present attractive in the eyes of visitors.

How can you recognise moderated offers?

On the list of offers, next to the status of the offer (Active, Archive, Draft), you'll see a small "M" icon indicating that the offer has been moderated in the language version of the page you are on. In addition, after entering the offer and switching to individual translations you will see the appropriate message in the language version in which the offer was edited.

If you want to make changes to the offer edited by our Team, please change only the most important parts of it, do not re-publish all the previous content. Some users, while updating the content of their ads, copy their own template again, destroying the effort and editorial work of our Team, thus reducing the reach of their offers. Trust our specialists, we know how to create offers that quickly generate sales.

My offer has not been edited, why?

Our Team moderates offers on a regular basis, however, due to their large number, we are not able to take care of everyone. Therefore, it may happen that an offer has been moderated only in some language versions and not in others. However, we try to fill these deficiencies on a regular basis.

Can I submit a request to edit my offer?

You can submit such a request to our Team, we will try to do everything we can to improve your offer quickly. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that every application will be processed. However, this does not change the fact that we will do our best to take care of your offers in a reliable and professional manner!

On the Merkandi platform, all sellers have the opportunity to advertise their offersto make them stand out from the others and attract more visitors. The details on promotion types, their location on the site, appearance and broadcasting time can be found here: How can I advertise my offers on Merkandi?

Advertising options and promotion packages can be paid online, by bank transfer or by points. The choice of payment by points gives you some very important benefits:

  • You save up to 30% when paying for advertising options

  • Immediate activation of the purchased promotion without having to go through the entire online payment process

  • Points can only be used to promote offers through individual advertising options and promotion packages, they cannot be used to pay for the account renewal, purchase of additional services, etc.
