Where to list a product
Adding your products is an easy process and takes no more than five minutes if you have all of the information you need readily available. You can begin adding your products from your Brand Page.
- From your Brand Page, click the "Products" button to reveal the Products tab.
- Just below the "Products" button, click the "Add a product" button.
Upload a product
The 'Add a Product' page is where you fill in your product's basic information. This information is very important since this is what Buyers will initially see when browsing Hubba.
- Enter your product's name.
- Select the Brand name you want to list your product under. (Sometimes users have more than 1 Brand associated with their account.)
- Describe your product - try to keep your description between two to five sentences. The most successful product description can be read quickly.
- Include your product's photos. Buyers rely heavily on these to make purchasing decisions. Try to upload the best quality images available. White background or lifestyle shots are both OK here.
- Choose categories with which to classify your product. These categories are used by Buyers when searching for products. A drop-down menu will appear to better direct you through each category.
- Click the "Add Features" button to move on to the next section.
Add product features
In this section, you can select and attribute different features to your product to make it even easier to find on Hubba (and to better match you up with Buyers looking for these features).
- Type in a feature you'd like to attribute to the product, or;
- Check off the feature in the box below to add that feature.
- Click the "Add Pricing" button to move on to the next section.
Add product pricing
You will now incorporate pricing for the product you're adding. In this section, you'll also include important information about the wholesale of your product.
- Enter your MSRP (Minimum Suggested Retail Price). Be sure to enter this in USD.
- Add a minimum quantity for wholesale orders. You can add multiple order quantities if you offer discounts for larger purchases.
- Include your price for the associated quantity. This will also be in USD.
- Enter the case size. This describes the quantity of your product in a case. If you don't enter anything in here, we will assume you sell in quantities of a single unit.
- Add the cost of shipping your case or unit. We recommend averaging out the cost to ship your products, both locally and nationwide (US only). In the meantime, we're working on improving Hubba's shipping pricing options in the near future.
- Click the "Add Details" button to move on to the next section.
Add product details
You've now reached the final step to listing your product on Hubba. In this section, you'll add the finishing details which will help give your product traction with Buyers.
- Enter a UPC. Having a UPC entered will help uniquely identify your product on Hubba.
- Select the country of origin.
- If you have a video of your product, add it here.
- If there is any extra information you want to include with your product, you can add an extra field here.
- When you're done, you can click the "Save" button to publish your product, or you can click the drop-down icon on the right of the "Save" button to reveal more options. These two options allow you to preview how your published product will look and save your product as a draft.
Now that you've followed all of these steps, you're well on your way to becoming a successful Brand. If you want to add more products, simply follow these steps again.
