WHAT are incoterms?

The incoterms stand for International Commercial Terms, which specify the costs and risks of shipping, including insurance and import taxes related to an international business deal. While there are many incoterms, just a few are used in the trading of used machines. Main incoterms used by Textilian concerning used equipment: 


 Exworks - The seller makes the goods available at their premises. While this usually does
not include truck loading, this can be discussed with the seller.
 LOC / LOT - stands respectively for Loaded on Container and Loaded on Truck. While these
are not proper incoterms, they notify the seller to take care of dismantling and loading the
truck or container sent by the buyer to the premises. Be sure to properly understand which
shipping resources are needed for specific types of machines (the type of container or truck).
 FCA – stands for Free Carrier. The seller takes care of the loading and delivery to a specific
location in the same country. This leaves some room for negotiation but it is usually
understood as a place close to the seller’s location.
 FOB – stands for Free on Board. The seller has to bring the machine to the nearest major
seaport and leave it at the shipping company (theoretically the ship). He also has to clear the
machine for export.
 CIF – stands for Cost, Insurance, and Freight. The seller is responsible for shipping the
machine to the main destination port, including transport insurance.
 DAP (ex DDU) – stands for Delivered at Place. The seller ships the machine all the way to
the agreed location, but does not take care of import clearance and unloading.

How can i increase my chances of selling?

1. Have great pictures
On Textilian a listing with 10 pictures is 15 times more likely to sell than a listing with 3
pictures. So having great pictures is the starting point to increase your chances of selling.


2. Write a detailed description
When writing your description you should consider 2 points:

1. Buyers are much more likely to inquire if they trust your listings - so giving many
details about the condition, the options, the maintenance, the usage and the reason
why you are selling your machines will make your listings more trustworthy


2. Longer description makes your listings more visible - our internal search engine as
well as Google or Bing uses the content of the description to show your listings in
search results pages. The more keyword-rich and detailed will be your description,
the better your listings will rank in results

In general here what our buyers need to know before purchasing:

 What was the machine used for?
 How was is maintained?
 How many hours/runs does it have?

 Is it viewable in production?
 What are the technical parameters (data sheet)?
