Mainly because they focus more on the image so that sellers can sell more. But, Unlike other selling apps they sell more on fashion, records, books, illustration, art and vintage fashion. With this kind of list it’s not hard to have a beautiful instagram-worthy shop. So, If you’re a stylish kind of person and you feel like you have lots of stylish/vintage kind of items to sell.
