By |2018-12-14T12:18:03+00:00September 27th, 2016|Categories: eBay, News, SellerExpress, Tips|Comments Off on eBay Product Pages Announcement

eBay has recently announced changes and updates intended to improve the integrity of its product pages, detailed below. eBay is built on the strength of our seller community. So we’re giving sellers the opportunity to help make sure the right products reach the right buyers every time. Effective immediately, if you see an item that doesn’t belong on an eBay product page, you can flag it to be reviewed and possibly removed. First, look for the flag symbol next to any item on an eBay product page. If you believe the item doesn’t belong on the page, click the flag symbol and “submit.” We’ll review and remove it, if necessary. Once removed, the item will still be available on the site for purchase, but will no longer be associated with this particular product. By letting us know about irrelevant items on our product pages, you’ll help buyers see the most relevant listings. Plus, you’ll improve the eBay experience for everyone in our community.

5 Key Challenges for Multichannel Sellers

Did you know you have a better chance of being bitten by a spider in your sleep in Australia than you do of successfully balancing profitability and multichannel fulfilment? But that’s okay because at SellerExpress, we’re here to even out the odds. In order to do that, you have to first understand the challenges in front of you so you don’t try and Sisyphus your way out of things. 1. Misunderstanding Each Channel’s Specific Marketing Needs You know, if you’re driving, there’s one speed limit for the highways and another for side country roads? That’s because each setting has different environments and factors in place, and so you can’t treat both situations identically. The same goes for marketing for your different channels. What works for one might not necessarily be effective for another, like investing in cost-per-click advertising for a brick-and-mortar store or avoiding a Facebook page for your online store. And narrowing it down even further, you can look at static versus dynamic implementations. Take SEO as an example of a relatively static practice. You’re using relevant keywords to bump up your standing in [...]

eBay Seller Hub Metrics

By |2018-12-14T12:18:04+00:00May 17th, 2016|Categories: eBay, News, SellerExpress, Tips, Webstores|Comments Off on eBay Seller Hub Metrics

Selling on eBay is largely a numbers game and if you’re not paying to these four metrics, then you’re missing out big-time. And just what little nuggets does SellerExpress have in store for you? Well, the kind that can bring in more money for you, of course! Metric 1: Selling Costs We see this happen way too many times: you sign up for a bank account and don’t pay attention to all the little fees they milk from you. Or maybe your favourite foods are being packaged in smaller sizes, but you’re still paying the same price for them. Whatever the case may be, there are plenty of instances where people aren't aware of just where their money is going. Don’t let that happen to you with your eBay account by regularly logging into your seller hub and monitoring how much you’re paying. And further than that, keep track of all expenses that go into building your eBay business, things like marketing and advertising, supplies, shipping costs, customs and tariffs, and anything else you’re spending money on. Metric 2: What Your Competitors Prices Are We’ve [...]
