When you sell a product online, you have the option to mark it as either public or private listing. The main difference is that a public product is accessible to everyone who visits the index or front page of the school’s webstore. It can be searched for, filtered by category or scrolled to. This means that everyone on the webstore can add it to the cart without any prior knowledge of its existence.

A private listing requires that you share the product’s webstore address with the potential buyer. For example, you can email or text the product’s address to one or a group of parents. You may want to do this based on your specific criteria such as a roaster. Another reason for the private listing is to use it when creating a new webstore product. You can test your work in privacy before making it public.
