What’s a ‘Saved Search’ and when does my item get e-mailed directly to a buyer?

Anyone with a SmartBride Boutique user account can create a ‘Saved Search’. Buyers can specify exactly what they are looking for by selecting their item type, price range, size range, and even more detailed criteria like neckline, silhouette, color, label size, street size etc. They save their search and can view it anytime from their ‘My SmartBride’ and receive an e-mail each morning with any items that match their search.

As a seller, it is very important to list any and all information you know about your item. If a buyer specifies a particular color or size in their search and the seller has not listed that information in their description, your item will not be included in the daily ‘Saved Searches’ e-mail.

Sellers can use ‘Saved Searches’ to monitor items similar to their own. You should always keep an eye on what comparable items are listed for to ensure you aren’t selling your item for too much or too little. You can edit your item information or price at any time from ‘My SmartBride’.
