Over 200,000 eBay sellers have grown their businesses with tools including Feedback Reminder, Listing Designer, and ThankYou Emails
When sellers think of eBay software, they often think of tools that allow them to list items quicker or help manage their inventory. But when the co-founder of 3Dsellers, Alex Flom, started selling medical equipment on eBay ten years ago, he realized there was another problem.
Sellers were neglecting the marketing and promotional side of their businesses. This was a big deal. By promoting their existing products better, they could make more sales without having to offer any more products.
So, to help grow his business, Alex had developed a number of unique eBay tools. He soon made them available as eBay apps so other sellers could benefit from using them. The first was a very popular tool that added a share button to eBay listings – before eBay created their own sharing buttons.
In the eight years since then, 3Dsellers have continued to build innovative tools exclusively for eBay sellers. These have been amazingly popular, with over 200,000 eBay sellers using their tools to date. What’s more, their tools are no longer just eBay apps. Instead, they have all been upgraded and are now available on one dashboard for the first time.
There’s more choice and innovation in eBay repricing software than you might think. Is automatic pricing finally risk-free for eBay sellers?
Businesses who sell competitive products are constantly fighting over price. It’s never been easier for shoppers to compare by price, and there’s precious little that will persuade them to go with a seller who isn’t the cheapest.
Sellers need to continually update their prices to remain competitive. Many adjust them automatically using repricing tools, but this type of software is often associated just with Amazon. eBay sellers can assume that this type of software isn’t available to them, or won’t work properly, and that they must monitor and regulate their prices manually.
But that is not the case. eBay repricing software has really come of age in recent times.
There are now several tools on the market which address the challenges of repricing on eBay, taking a number of different, innovative approaches to solve the key problems. We’ll take a look at four of them: Price Spectre, RepricerExpress, StreetPricer and Price Guard.
Appeagle, one of the world’s top repricing tools, has a big vision for the future of online selling, as it rebrands to Informed.co
When a business is a leader in its category, it’s uncommon to see them expand into uncharted territory. But, that is exactly what leading repricing software, Appeagle, is about to do as they dive into the world of seller analytics.
In recent times, repricing has matured, thanks to it being simpler to automate and the technology behind it becoming more advanced. So, Appeagle wanted to see if there were any other parts of a seller’s business that they could enhance. There were. By building brand new analytics tools, they could help online sellers make better decisions.
Appeagle have marked the change of direction with a new name and a new brand. They are now Informed.co, and their ambition is big – to be seen by ecommerce businesses in the same way that website owners see Google Analytics: the go-to source of data about their business, with intelligent insights and recommendations.
From bulk editing to quickly duplicating listings, here’s how Wonder Lister makes having thousands of items on eBay a whole lot simpler.
Picture this: you’re a marketplace seller, you have thousands of different products, and all of a sudden your most popular brand changes its name, meaning you need to edit all of your listings.
If you sell on eBay, this scenario could cause you all kinds of problems. Unlike Amazon, where the catalog reigns supreme, on eBay you’re responsible for the content of all of your listings. That’s okay if you only have a few, but if you have thousands then finding the right ones and changing them accurately can be a massive undertaking… Unless, of course, you are using Wonder Lister.
Wonder Lister is an eBay selling tool with a huge number of useful features, including a very fast and flexible bulk editing system. It allows you to search all of your active eBay listings, find the ones that need changing, and edit them all at once, from a desktop app.
An eBay management tool is a must-have for large sellers. For just $5 per month, Wonder Lister allows up to 1000 active listings. At that price, it supports 2 eBay accounts and 1 eBay site, but the higher-level plans support unlimited eBay accounts and listing to all of eBay’s global marketplaces.
Alex Knight gets his golf balls out and walks us through four Amazon keyword research tools, to help sellers optimize their listings and ads
One of an Amazon’s sellers most important jobs is to discover the words that buyers are using to search for their product.
Why? Because they need to make sure that all of the most important terms are included in their Amazon listing. They also need to make sure that their PPC campaigns use relevant terms, with good traffic and sensible competition. Otherwise, they are losing out on potential sales, and wasting money.
So how can sellers find keywords? One way, is to get a thesaurus and sit racking your brains for all the terms that someone could possibly use to find your product. This is going to be a painful experience. You’re almost certainly going to miss words out, and have no useful data on the ones you do find.
Luckily, there is a whole category of software focused on generating keyword suggestions and providing data on their popularity, relevance and competition. I’ve reviewed four of those tools, to help you choose the right ones.
They range from under $10 per month, right through to nearly $400 and there’s also one with a “free forever” plan. The type of data they produce varies, as does the complexity of their interface, with some having Chrome extensions and others just web apps.
