Original Post

Hi all! I just discovered that you can create a listing & save it.

Step 1: Create the listing through to page 5 (where you would hit the finish button)

Step 2: copy the URL (Looks like this --->
and paste it elsewheres. (I suggest writing it in an email to yourself so it becomes a clickable link)

Step 3: Go out & play, you've just saved your listing!

To upload saved listing

1. Copy the URL that you placed elsewheres or click on the link in your email (& skip step 2)

2. Paste it in the url box thingy (top of browser page) (hit go)

3. Hit the finish button.

An now your listing gets listed and it is brand new :)

Ta. Da.

This method will keep you from getting front page exposure and will still put you in the original time slot for serach results and category browsing.

(Admin has said that the search and browsing order are based on the time you start making your listing, not the time you finish it. Your item gets a number as soon as you click to start your listing.)

What GoTo said.
It deprives you of the exposure of a new item. You will list it as an 'old' item.
