For tips on how to get started, and step-by-step guides, be sure to go to our blog. blog.ssbeautymarket.com
S//S is a marketplace that makes it easy to buy and sell beauty products from other beauty lovers.
It's the only dedicated marketplace to makeup, skincare, and beauty related items.
As a S//Shopper it's easy to search for what you're looking for, add items to your cart, and checkout in a single transaction. If what you're looking for isn't available for sale at the moment, you can list it as an "In Search Of" aka ISO and as soon as someone posts one for sale or swap, they'll be alerted that you are looking for that item.
As a S//Seller it's easy to list items you have available for sale. There is a built in shipping label feature, so when your item is sold, you can print and pop your item in the post right away.
If you're interested in S//Swapping for something you want, all you have to do is include #swapWant as one of your tags in your ISO listing.
If you're open to S//Swapping something you have, all you have to do is include #swapHave in your listing.
