Create an Approved Store

Follow the link in each step for details.

  1. If you already have a MorphMarket account, tap the "Start Selling" option under Account Settings in the menu. If you don't yet have one, Sign Up to create a user account and verify your email.
  2. Create your Seller Profile by filling out the required fields.
  3. Obtain Approval for selling by sending us an email according to the given directions. We'll try to respond within 24 - 48 hours in email.

While waiting for approval, complete the following steps:

  • Review and understand our Rules which we require all sellers to follow.
  • Add additional detail to your Store Profile. It is critical for you to review the Default Store Policy. This is the "contract" between you and your buyers. If you want a different contract, you may customize your personal Store Policy with the parameters that are right for your business. This customized contract must be spelled out in your Store Profile. Also, it's valuable to introduce yourself and describe your business, helping you to stand out from the crowd and give buyers confidence.
  • Watch the 15 minutes of videos in the Seller's Guides and/or read the material to know how to make the most of MorphMarket's rich capabilities.
  • Start creating ads using the Add or Import menu options.

Once Approved

Upon receiving an email that you're approved, any ads within your membership limits that you have created will be live. If you don't see your ad showing up in a particular search, give it a little time. See Where's My New Ad for explanations.

Congratulations, your MorphMarket Store is open for business!

What's Next?

All of your seller/store management options are located under Account Settings > Seller Profile in the Main Menu. (Tap your username/logo in the upper-righthand corner). You must be logged in.

  • If you didn't already do so, create an ad using the Add or Import menu options. Saved ads are automatically live, but here are some reasons you might not immediately see them where you expect.
  • View an ad in your store and send yourself an inquiry to test that you can receive inquiry emails without problems.
  • Become familiar with how to view and send messages at any time on our website.
  • If applicable, go back and add more detail to your Seller Profile about your business and policies.
  • Consider becoming a MorphMarket member. Read below for details.
  • Here are more tips for maximizing your success.
  • Add your Social links to make it easier for buyers to research your store and keep up to date with your Projects as you share them.

Becoming a Member

At MorphMarket, memberships play a crucial role in sustaining our platform and abilities of providing additional benefits to buyers and sellers across all markets. While non-paying sellers are still welcome, it's important to note that free selling is limited in all but our newest market categories, such as Aquatics and Plants.

Memberships are the backbone that keeps MorphMarket running. Without the support from our community, we wouldn't be able to do the things we do for the community. By becoming a member, you not only enjoy extra benefits but also contribute to the continuous growth and enhancement of the platform. Moreover, memberships enable us to actively support reptile rescues and charities, making a positive impact beyond our platform.

  • Hobbyists to find reliable information on care, genetics, and breeding
  • Top breeders to have high-level conversations with other breeders
