Mark notes the use of Promoted Listings on eBay as a significant point of difference, as with this sponsorship his listings will quickly appear in the top of search for the category - the cost of which is only incurred after a successful sale. “It’s very simple, we just put the product on there, sponsor it, it sells. We actually use the fact that we come up in number one or two positions as a marketing tool for our other offline shops.”

- Mark, Clean & Pure 

Why do you love selling on eBay?

“I think it’s a great starting platform; if you have a good business model, eBay will help with the traffic they get every year, or even every day, and assist with moving volumes and setting up online processes needed. If you can’t make it work on eBay I highly doubt you can make it work on any other site.”

What advice do you have for your fellow sellers?

“Be invested in the product and take the time to research and understand the competition. A competitive price doesn’t need to be the lowest price and if your range is strong, your price is competitive, and your delivery is fast there is no reason not to be successful on the platform.”

Reflecting on how far both their business and eBay have come since they first began listing TV brackets in 2007, Ganon and Doran’s advice to sellers is to take advantage of the numerous functions that are available. From having to walk down to the post office everyday with their packages to now being able to print labels on site, they have seen huge changes across the platform over the past decade, and encourage others to engage with these opportunities.

Why do you love selling on eBay?

“We started selling on eBay seven years ago. eBay has helped us a lot, we didn’t know anything about ecommerce sales when we started. We feel like we have been able to grow with eBay and notice improvements on the platform over the last several years. We started with 100 listings, we are now at 2000 listings and growing!”

What advice do you have for your fellow sellers?

“I tell friends all the time, if you want to start selling, go to eBay first; you don’t have to go out and find your buyers, eBay already has them waiting for you. For sellers already on eBay and looking to expand their range, I would recommend using Terapeak as it is an amazing tool that eBay gives to you for free and start small to test the waters of new products. It is better to take your time to scale as opposed to rushing in and trying to do everything all at once.”

Why do you love selling on eBay?

 

 

"As a long time user of eBay (since 2005), eBay was my go to store for all my shopping needs (buying and selling household items). eBay gave us the opportunity to quickly and easily start a business as the eBay platform already did the marketing for us and put our products before their customer base of millions of users. Over the next 2 years, we were so busy filling orders, that I left my full time job and my wife and I both worked in the business full time. We are proud to say that eBay is still a major part of our business strategy as we have grown to a team of 6 full time staff all these year on."

What advice do you have for your fellow sellers?

"Give your customers all the information they need on your product listings. high resolution images with clear backgrounds, fast & free postage, relevant descriptions and specifications not just regurgitated technical data. Once a customer purchases your items, dispatch your items promptly and leave them feedback. Give good customer service and your business will do well."
