Keeping ahead of eBay’s Best Practices is easy with ListSmart

Jez Browning

eBay’s best practices are a constantly moving target. This week we’re giving you a very quick glimpse of how the ListSmart App can keep you ahead of the curve.

With many of you being tied up with the bustle of Black Friday, Online Monday week and Christmas, no doubt you’ve had little chance to make a real start with the tool. So, let this simple tutorial act as inspiration to quickly and effectively optimise your store for 2017.

You can find more videos like this and other helpful information on our Resources page.

In the video we’ll show you how to:

  1. Navigate to your listings from the dashboard.
  2. Pick a listing and implement a change.
  3. Push your changes 'Live to eBay' or create a csv file.
  4. Upgrade to ListSmart PLUS using our subscription service.
  5. Unlock a listing to view further Intelligent recommendations.

ListSmart gives you the equivalent of your own eBay research team to keep you abreast of eBay’s constant evolution of their categorisation tree. eBay’s goal of creating a much more pleasant and organised online marketplace experience has lead to their recommended Gold Standard rules for listings. You now have easy step-by-step guides within the app at your fingertips.

You get access to the work and knowledge of our data science team! They examine Top Sellers and their tactics within your categories.

Some of the less obvious tactics that eBay Top Sellers adopt, such as Return Policies, Shipping and even Image count, can all be implemented on your store with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Since ListSmart went live at the end of October, our Sellers, like yourself, have been fully optimising each of their listings in under a minute.

If you're already a user of the tool, you’ll be pleased to know that we now have some very helpful guides on our newly created Resources page.

If you’ve still yet to get your hands on our App, then simply sign up on now.
