As a partner of eBay, we want to empower you to reach your maximum earning potential. Below, we describe 3 different ways you can use eBay data to optimize your existing performance and take your commissions to the next level.
By using eBay data, you can pick items that you expect your audiences will purchase, and, as a result, convert more of your followers into commission-driving buyers.
3 things you can do today to increase your earnings:
1. Not sure what to promote? If you want to see what the top selling items are- regardless of price and searches- visit the Best Sellers section here. You can browse the most sold items in the last 7 days, or the last 24 hours, in any category.
2. Get in front of trends by keeping an eye on the Trending section at explore.ebay.com. Here, you’ll find the most sought after items on eBay. For example, try promoting the GoPro HERO5, which at the time of this writing had over 45,000 searches on eBay in the last 6 weeks.
3. Have an item in mind but aren’t sure about the return? Find out What It’s Worth here. For example, you can find that a brand new Apple iPhone 7 is worth $772.05. Being that this item is in the electronics category, you receive 50% of eBay’s revenue share on this sale. Don’t forget that you receive another 2x commissions if the buyer hasn’t shopped on eBay in 12 months or longer.
