Sales Categories on Allegro
Allegro is a horizontal marketplace and sells products from multiple categories, such as:
- Home & Garden
- Culture and entertainment
- Sports and travel
- Collections and art
- Office supplies
To get your products as high as possible on the listing at Allegro, you will need to take a few factors into account:
- Make sure product titles and descriptions are in Polish.
- The product description should only be about the product in question.
- Be informative and make sure the products are displayed visually appealing.
The key to success on marketplaces is standing out. Therefore, make sure your product texts have catchy titles. Avoid listing unnecessary specifications; this only distracts the consumer's attention. Keep it simple!
Make sure not to make a long-winded story out of your product text, but short and concise with all the specifications of the product. Detailed product text also reduces the chances of returns.
Because the product texts must be delivered in Polish, we recommend that you first conduct a keyword research in Polish on the products in your assortment. To ensure a good translation, it is best to have the texts translated by a professional translation agency.
Finally, make sure you have enough quality product photos. Think of product images from different angles, but also, for example, images with the USPs (Unique Selling Points) of the product or a video.
