eBay Challenges Sellers to Meet Personalised Goals
Growth opportunities for eBay sellers
Do you feel up to the challenge of boosting your online sales by as much as 25 percent? E-commerce giant eBay has faith that its sellers can do just that, throwing down the gauntlet and challenging specially selected vendors to meet personalised goals and sales targets. The initiative has been designed to motivate sellers and, as an added incentive, users who take part will be entered into a very special sweepstakes.
Those invited to take part in the scheme were selected because eBay believed their past sales numbers suggested they could go on to break targets and sell even more than before. To help sweeten the deal, the emailed invitation promised participants support from the online auction house, including sales activity data and invaluable seller insights, as well as access to a performance summary that will allow vendors to track their progress and dissect stats for individual sales.
On top of all that, twenty entrants will be given the chance to get free final listing values on seventy-five of their listings. All they have to do to be eligible for the prize is reach the goal eBay sets them before the initiative draws to a close on January 15, 2015.
To help sellers reach their targets, eBay has also just issued an update for its flagship iOS app, offering a suite of new enhancements that make it easier than ever before for users to stay on top of their eBay business via their tablet or smart phone no matter where they are. The most exciting new feature for merchants is the ability to use the app to buy, create, and produce shipping labels for items that have recently gone under the hammer.
Both these announcements come hot on the heels of a comprehensive survey eBay conducted recently. The census asked sellers for advice on how the online giant could improve its rapport with the selling community, suggesting they were looking at ways of helping sellers, new and old, to improve. This new initiative is certainly an encouraging step in the right direction, proving eBay are committed to helping more merchants find success on their online marketplace.
