  • • To post your listings, simply follow all of the prompts for each product that you would like to setup. There is no maximum product listing amount, you can setup as many products as would like.

  • • When setting up your products you can choose a custom pricing or fixed pricing option. Fixed pricing is exactly how it sounds, the product has a fixed price. The custom pricing option allows you as the baker to accept customizations to your product and then provide a price based on those customizations. When setting up your product you select custom pricing, enter the price range and when you receive an inquiry about your product you can send the buyer an offer. The checkout process is the exact same in both features.
