Be specific...

Please put the amount that you have (in pounds, oz, bottles, other units etc) in the description and in the Inventory section. This helps buyers know how much you have right away and makes them more inclined to buy your product.

Please have a PER UNIT pricing for all mushrooms. Buyers don’t have time to negotiate and will not buy from you if you don’t put this information. For example: $30/pound or $12/ounce.

Lastly, please include the shipping price in your product price if you don’t want to set up shipping. Foraged has a flat rate of $7.99 for shipping if you choose not to setup your shipping for your store. Buyers are not responsible for paying you an additional price for shipping unless specified.
