Creating a Custom Experience
One advantage of having your own eBay shop is that you can customise its design, even adding your own logo. Visitors to your shop front will appreciate a well constructed page that stands out from the crowd, just as they would appreciate a well presented shop on the high street. This custom design can also help to increase your credibility, as can the ability to list a phone number and other contact details on your eBay shop page.
Research and Reporting
One advantage of establishing your own eBay shop is the comprehensive sales report that eBay provides. You will be able to see your monthly sales according to each category in which your items are listed, as well as how you are succeeding amongst rival sellers within the same niche market. This information can help you to tailor your auctions to reach your prospective buyers, as well as keeping tabs on your best selling items.
Stand up and Be Noticed
eBay frequently releases data about the sellers on its website, showing consistently that an increase in sales is a natural progression from creating an eBay shop. This is due to increased exposure and therefore an increased level of traffic to each and every item that you list on eBay. What’s more, the more goods that you start to sell and the greater the emphasis you start to place on customer service, the higher your feedback rating. This positive feedback rating could, in time, enable you to be classed as a top rated seller providing you with discounts on your eBay fees.
