If the seller would like to expand their market, but chooses not to market to retail buyers, the listing can be marketed as "commercial" and only approved commercial traders can access the listing.  For the widest marketing reach, sellers can also list their new or used containers as “Retail” and anyone visiting the can view the listing.
