If you are not yet familiar with eBay take some time to explore the site. Once you are ready to open your virtual store think about long-term branding for your business. A name should be professional but unique to you and your company’s mission. Imagine how your business name will translate into other sales channels in the future.
Build a Reputation
A quick way to build up your eBay positive rating is to make a purchase and leave a review for the seller. An inexpensive purchase can be a great way to earn a 5-star review from the seller.
Get a sense of what your products will sell for by filtering for sold listings. Instead of searching all auctions, be sure to uncheck the completed items option, too view ones that ended with a sale. Sort by price to see how low in price your competitors are willing to go.
Quality Images Matter
Don’t underestimate the power of a well-lit photograph. The best lighting is completely free. Take your photographs outside on a sunny day. Be sure to include any product imperfections in your photos. You will build a loyal following if you are open and honest about the quality of your inventory.
