As an eBay Stores seller, optimizing your listings and maintaining excellent customer service can help your business stand out. The following best practices will help your Store get maximum exposure to potential customers.
Make the front page — Showing up in Best Match
Best Match helps buyers find what they’re looking for by showing the most relevant and popular listings for their search first. Here’s how to increase your likelihood of showing up in Best Match:
- Price your item competitively. Even after your fixed price listing is published on eBay, keep an eye on your competitors’ prices and re-adjust your own to stay on top.
- Include the recommended item specifics. Specifics such as brand, style, model, color, and other attributes allow your listing to show up in narrowed down, specific searches. Be sure to include the condition of your item, which is a top purchasing criterion for your buyers.
- Include unique identifiers and use product details from our catalog whenever possible. Unique identifiers include Universal Product Code (UPC), European Article Number (EAN), International Standard Book Number (ISBN), and Manufacturer’s Part Number (MPN). Our catalog contains product details that can help you create more complete listing descriptions.
- Group multiple identical items into single, multi-variation listings. Save buyers the hassle of looking through vast quantities of listings in your Store by grouping items that are the same into a single listing.
- List in the correct category and write effective titles. Even if you repeat the category name in the title, make sure to state exactly what your item is and include words that buyers might use to search, such as brand, color, size, and model number.
