It’s time to share the important information about your product. Use the image below as a guide to learn where the information you provide will be displayed when the product is live.


Quick Tips:

  • ‘Short Description’ & ‘Description’ are BOTH important fields, but you can choose to copy & paste the same text in both areas or provide EXTRA information when you get to the ‘Description’ section. Think about what kind of information a potential buyer may need to know before they make a purchase. Keep it fun, simple & show off your personality.
  • The big image will be used as the featured picture. That’s the one which gets displayed on the home page.
  • The smaller picture area is for the ‘gallery’ and we recommend 3 to 4 images.
  • All images should be 600 – 800 px wide, and 100KB or smaller.
  • Make sure you own the images or have the right to use all images you upload.
  • You’re free to set your own price, but we recommend a selling price of $2-$10 if you want to be competitive with other local maps on NanoWhat. 
  • ‘Category’ & ‘Tags’ will help shoppers find your product and will make it more likely to be found in search results.
