Tutorial: How to Sell on 4K

February 1st, 2022

How do I sell items on 4K?

Marketplace Basics

The 4K Marketplace is the central hub for conducting transactions between buyers and sellers of items on our platform. Physical items listed on the 4K Marketplace are first converted into NFTs, or Non-Fungible-Tokens. These NFTs represent the tangible, physical items that we help you to "digitally-bridge" using the 4K Protocol. In practice, this means that once you are ready to sell an item, you'll have a quick call with a representative at 4K, ship your item to a secure vault owned by 4K, and gain ownership of an NFT representing the physical item which can then be listed on the 4K Marketplace.

Once you list your "digitally-bridged" item on the 4K Marketplace, the item will be available for purchase from buyers immediately using cryptocurrency.

Connecting your wallet

Before listing any "digitally-bridged" items on the 4K Marketplace, you'll need to make sure you have successfully connected a crypto wallet to 4K.

For now, the only supported self-custodial wallet is MetaMask.

For full instructions on connecting your wallet, follow the steps outlined in this article.

Selling your items

If you are new to the 4K Marketplace, you will need to register as a seller and work with a 4K representative to list your items. If you already own a physically-backed NFT that was purchased on the 4K Marketplace, you can skip to Step 2 to list your physically-backed NFT directly on the 4K Marketplace.

Step 1: Register to become a seller

To begin, click the "become a seller" button in the homepage header.

Our partnership page contains information around the types of items that we tend to list on our marketplace. If you have an item that qualifies, or if you think that your item would make a good addition to our inventory, reach out to us by clicking the "Contact Us" button near the middle of the page.

Fill out the intake form with your information, and one of our Business Development representatives will reach out to you within a few days. They will walk you through the process of transferring over your inventory and converting your items to physically-backed NFTs.

Step 2: Enter the 4K Marketplace

Once your physical items have been "digitally-bridged" to NFTs, they are ready to be listed on the 4K Marketplace.

Upon entering the marketplace, you will be prompted by your crypto wallet for a signature request. Ensure your wallet is connected, and approve the request.

The Marketplace page lists out all items currently in 4K's inventory.

Step 3: View the Dashboard Profile to view your available items

You can view the portfolio of items you own by clicking the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the page. Under the dropdown options, click "Profile."

The Dashboard Profile acts as a portfolio for all of your currently owned items. From this page, you are able to sell the item directly on the 4K Marketplace, or redeem the digital NFT for the physical item.

We recommend updating your profile to include your username and email as soon as possible to stay notified on the status of your items.

Step 4: List your items on the 4K Marketplace

When you are ready to list your items, click the "Sell" button on the item in your portfolio. The following module will appear in which you are able to set a price target and expiration date for your item.

Upon clicking "Sell," the 4K Marketplace will once again ask to access your wallet. Confirming this request will complete your listing. Keep in mind that there may be gas fees associated with your listing.

Once the listing is completed, the following confirmation screen will appear.

Step 5: Managing your listing

Once your item is listed on the Marketplace, it is available to purchase for Buyers. If you wish to cancel your listing, click on the item page and click "Cancel Sale."

Buyers are able to make offers that are lower than the price you initially set. Offers can be seen on this tab in the item listing. If you wish to accept an offer, you can do so on this screen.
