No, you are not required to publish your personal address. The address field in your profile dashboard is meant to be a Product address so it can be located in map searches rather than your personal address. The Product address can be a meetup location.

No, you don’t have to publish your phone number, you can communicate with Buyers and Sellers using the Chat feature within YourBlast.

The exchange of Addresses and Contact numbers to meet or discuss a listing, is entirely at the discretion of Sellers and Buyers.

Selling

Yes, in YourBlast you can include a video link to YouTube or Vimeo . It really adds Excitement to your Ad!

Video listings are Cool and bring your Ads to Live, Good Thinking! YourBlast provides you with a method to include a Video for your listing by linking to a published video in YouTube or Vimeo .

Login and in your personal Dashboard , select My ads and find the ad. Checkmark ‘Sold’.

Look for similar products to get a sense of how much they are selling for, after that it is really a personal decision. Often how the product is described, sparks more interest from Buyers.

If you are still not sure, try placing an Auction Ad rather than just a Selling Ad to gauge how much interest there is.
