Over the years, the development of the Internet and protocols has enhanced interconnectivity of the global market and completely revolutionized the conventional business model. More and more businesses are taking to the Internet as the main business platform, shifting from the old premise based operation.
The competition for the online market has rapidly grown, and many businesses nowadays, have websites that sell products and/or services as their main function. Better still, the development of an internationally renowned online platform, e.g. eBay, is opening the global market to businesses.
With competition, it is therefore paramount to know how to enhance your product listing. This has been made easier due to the development of eBay tools for sellers, which they can use to achieve this outcome.
The following are the secrets that you need to know to guide you in achieving better listing. These include;
1.) Build A Reputation:
This is a tasking fete that requires consistency, as it is a process that takes time-weeks, months or even years. As you continue selling items, you get more feedback, and your target is to get more positive feedback, which will make more customers to build trust in you as a genuine seller.
2.) Have A Good Username:
Identify a sensible and practical username for your eBay business account, one which your customers can identify with. It is also good practice to maintain the business username for as long as possible, because constant changes will make your customers lose track of your business.
3.) Use As Much Descriptive Information:
Include as much product information or any other pertinent information as possible, which will help your customers to understand your items or business entity. This may be information that describes the products, shipping information, targeted market, pricing, location, images, etc.
The main information usually encapsulated together with the listed items includes;
- Several quality images

- A full description, even damages where appropriate
- Payment modes that you from the buyers
- Your returns policy
4.) Include A Section About Yourself Or Business:
This is important as a way of building confidence in your customers. Most customers buy where they feel they have a connection to or they understand the seller. Very few sellers (only 6%) on eBay include this section, and by including it, you will definitely stand out from among them.
5.) Setup An eBay Shop:
Apart from just having an account with a username and trading with the account, you could set up a virtual eBay shop, which will be easier to manage the listings under it and build its strong online presence. It would also be much easier to track its trends and performance than just an account.
You can also customize the online shop to reflect your business’ image and if necessary, link it to any other platform.
With these key elements already factored in your eBay operation, you are on the way to achieving better sales. However, these are not the only factors necessary; you need to incorporate extensive market research, continual performance evaluation and consistency. The rest is your skill in online trading.
