How important eBay is?
eBay, on the other hand, is a big shopping marketplace for buying and selling product items at both fixed prices and to the highest bidder through an auction system. eBay offers seller tools and features that make it easier for you to feature your brand in an eBay store. Ebay provide powerful API to integrate any kind of website for listing our products.
Consider the following before you decide to sell on eBay:
eBay lets you put product items you have own up for auction to the highest bidder, which will attract many users who are looking for used, unique, or hard-to-find items.
However, the shopping is also great for offering product items at fixed prices. In fact, adverse to what you might think, 86% of eBay’s Gross Merchandise Volume is from items sold at a fixed price and 80% of the items sold on the platform are new, not used.
You will need to figure out shipping details and fulfillment, either by doing it on your own or working with a third party fulfillment center.
There is an insertion fee per listing, per category, but sellers get a fixed amount of “free listings” per month depending on their eBay account type. However there are also Advanced Listing options that you can pay for to spruce up your listing.
Be sure to check out the fees for listing and selling on eBay if you’re considering selling here.
Why we need to integrate Ebay with our eCommerce site?
Whether you already do selling on eBay or are considering it as your raid into the online world, you should consider an integrated solution right from the start of your plans and here is why. If you are selling across multiple platforms it can become extremely difficult to co-ordinate stock across separate selling channels; this may result in customers not receiving goods, or complaints that there item is out of stock leading to a loss in revenue and sales.
With eBay integration all your stock will be managed from one interface. You’ll have the ability to take products offline or mark them as out of stock and the ability to communicate with your customers in regards to whether there item is available is a necessity! Have you ever got to the checkout to find your item is out of stock? It can be a huge annoyance and may be enough to stop a customer from returning to your store!
Secondly if you have an eCommerce website in addition to an eBay site in an integrated solution you are increasing your online visibility and carrying your brand name across the web to create a distinct online identity, giving you the opportunity to reach millions of customers through the World Wide Web.
