Finding ways to level up your online business is always an evolving process. Many online sellers nowadays are getting creative to reach as many buyers as possible to ensure that their items are coming across buyers who might be interested in their listing, which will ultimately result in conversions. But before getting creative outside the marketplace of your choice, it is always best to maximize the potential of the tools and features provided by the marketplace where you sell.
Like many popular online shopping platforms like Poshmark, Mercari, eBay, and Depop, Kidizen has features to help sellers reach a broader range of potential buyers.
Because one of the most critical keys in selling on marketplaces is making your item visible to the feeds of users, followers, and search engines. Features such as Promoted Listings and Bumping items are very helpful, and Kidizen encourages its users to utilize their sharing feature.
In this blog post, let's talk about what Bumping items on Kidizen are and how it works to give you an advantage in selling.
What is Kidizen
Kidizen is an online resale marketplace where parents usually shop for fashion items and essentials at affordable prices. The platform advocates providing a marketplace for moms where they can earn and find the best styles for their kids. It has a parent-to-parent community that encourages connections between moms to share not only their style but also their experiences.
The idea of reselling kids' clothes and essentials comes from the fact that kids easily outgrow their things resulting in piles of unused items. And to practice responsible consumption, Kidizen became a venue for these treasures.
Like in other marketplaces, sellers on Kidizen have equal opportunities to generate income at the comfort of their homes. You can buy and sell clothes, shoes, accessories, nursery and room decor, toys, books, and more, including stylish maternity clothes, essential baby items like baby carriers, diaper bags, and other items for newborns.
Sharing or Bumping Items on Kidizen
Bumping or sharing items on Kidizen lets sellers get their listings in front of more shoppers. The more you share, the higher the chance that other users will see your listings, boosting your sales.
When you bump your items, they appear on top of the shop feed. Remember that there are a lot of sellers like you on the platform that lists tons of items every minute; hence the competition can be tough. Keeping your listings afloat and not drowned by newly posted and shared items can be challenging, so you must ensure their presence where many users can see them. When you share your items, your followers get notified to check the listings that you shared.
To share your listings:
- Locate the Share button on the lower right-hand area of your listing photo

Stay connected with other users.
Sharing items on Kidizen isn't exclusive to your listings. You may also share other people's items which can earn you your own shares. This is how the community is connected on the platform. It allows all the users to interact by asking and answering questions in the comment section. Sharing also serves as the ideal venue for shops to tend to inquiries efficiently without worrying about losing conversations.
In addition to this, you will get notifications when others have shared your items. To get notified, here's how you can set your preference.

- Click on the Gear Icon located below your profile
- Choose your desired Push and In-App Notifications for the following:
- Sales & Purchases

- Lastly, set your desired Email Notifications tool.
You could also easily see who has shared your listing by taping the shared tally below your listing's description. This feature can only be visible once someone has shared the item.
