Why Crosspost? – Simple, Educate Someone!
Crossposting is sharing media or information from one location to one or more locations. So that it reaches more people or a broader audience. Crossposting in Reddit is more like sharing content to the desired subreddit under which it is discussed. The subreddit serves as a kind of forum. An original post or a crosspost will either get upvoted or downvoted which affects the Karma of the user. A post with more downvotes disappears from the feed.
Things you should care for…
When crossposting, never pretend to be the original creator. Just recommend the creator that they crosspost themselves wherever you want. Or add a crosspost indicator when you put it under a subreddit.

The page will now refresh to show the created crosspost. And yes, you have successfully created a crosspost.
