Customization is Key

We love NetPS Plant Database because it gives plant buyers all of the information they need about the plants they sell, this includes photos and care requirements.

However, online plant shoppers appreciate seeing the product that will arrive to their doorstep. Customizing your listings will help you differentiate your shop from other plant sellers with similar listings. Here are a few recommendations on how to do that:

  • Upload your own product photos.
    The NetPS Plant Database image library does an amazing job of showcasing various plants at maturity or seasonal interest. Compliment those images by including additional reference photos of the products you intend to ship.
  • Tell us more about your plants!
    Adding your plant’s own unique story of how it was cultivated and where is a nice touch to make for a unique listing.
  • Maintain Inventory & Pricing
    You, as the seller, are responsible for maintaining your pricing and inventory on your products. You will need to complete this information prior to publishing your listings.
