If starting an eBay business is your goal, as opposed to just auctioning a few items off for some extra cash, you need an eBay shop or store because eBay’s success depends on the success of its sellers, they strive to help you at every turn.
eBay Store Shops are one of the better solutions for eBay businesses. An eBay store will allow you to list multiple quantities of the same item, and allow you to keep them listed for longer time periods.
eBay Store owners also enjoy lower auction fees, and have access to advanced merchandising tools. Eventually, you should consider upgrading to an eBay Pro Store, which will allow you to customize your storefront with your own brand and web address.
Here are the best features of having an ebay store:
You can list items in your store for 30days or longer.
Your items will cost less to list.
You have access to Omniture Web Statistics, which shows which items are the most popular, which search engines are referring people to your eBay listings, which words are being searched for most in your store etc etc.
You get sales reports and traffic reports.
You can have featured item boxes to promote certain items in your shop.
You can add a sign up to my newsletter page on your shop frontpage, and therefore build your eBay mailing list.
You can send emails to all your eBay subscribers promoting items you have for sale in one easy step, free advertising !
The list really is endless, if your serious about selling on eBay then you need an eBay store shop today!
