Should I open an Ebay store?

09 August 2007

If you take a look at the top ebay dvd sellers, you'll notice one thing. They all have an ebay store. With a listing fee as low as
5 cents, ever serious seller should consider opening an ebay store.

There are a couple of drawbacks to an ebay store. The final value fee is higher than an ebay auction. Most dvd auctions will sell for under $25. Ebay will collect 10% of the final value of all store items sold at $25 or less. Another drawback is store items do not show up in ebay search results except in rare cases.

The top sellers run the bulk of their items as store listings. They run auction listing that provide links to their store and encourage buyers to click through. The most successful strategy is to include a navigation bar in your auction that lists your movies by genre. This is one of the most successful strategies I have found to encourage buyers to visit my store.

Good Luck,
