5 Rules To Be Followed In Your eBay/Amazon 
Business   To   Increase   Your   Selling   In   This 
Holiday Season
Holiday season is coming up and many are curious to know what would be the top 
selling items of this year. Also, many eBay/Amazon store owners are now itself 
getting   ready   for   this  upcoming   holiday   season.   Since   45%   of   shoppers   prefer 
buying online, as a seller the first step you have to take is to keep updated with 
your inventory so that you may not suffer during huge demand. The next step is to 
follow the below 5 rules to entice your customers to come to your store.


Rule   1:   Research   for   a   competitive   low   price   for   your 
products:

According   to Forrester   Research,   “55%   of   online   shoppers   always   check   for 
competitive prices before buying”. Therefore, if you want to increase your selling, 
you  would   need   to  change  the current  price of  your products with competitive 
lower price. The best tool you can use isTerapeak to do pricing research for each of 
your products. If you are medium sized entrepreneur and having more products to 
sell, you don’t have to worry. You can hire virtual assistants to do competitive price 
research for your business. Since the time frame for holiday season is less, seek the 
best one to get good profit. The other tool you can use is “eBay Deal Finder” to 
tempt your buyers.

Rule 2: Ship on time:

Once   customers   are  satisfied   with  the  product  prices,  they next  look for quick 
delivery service. Techcrunch stated that eBay launched “eBay Now “to offer same 
day   shipping   service   for   its   customers.   Therefore,   the   best   way   to   attract   your 
customers is to include the product delivery time in your item title. Also, make sure 
you fulfill your promise of faster shipping otherwise it would impact your feedback 
rating. Because, when item is not received on time as promised, customers get 
irritated and they just leave feedback without even inquiring the seller about the 
delivery status. Also, there is chance of delay in order delivery, due to peak huge 
sales in holiday season.

With faster shipping option and offering shipping cost at low or free shipping will 
be like hitting 2 birds with one stone. Therefore, increase your sales growth by 
offering same day shipping service with the low or at times free shipping cost. 
There are another 2 strategies followed in eBay to entice its buyers. One is offering 
                                                               
free shipping with moderate item cost or selling at auctions whose bids starts from 
$0.99 with high shipping cost and both has proved to increase the selling.  Thus, 
when comparison shopping, consumers take product price and shipping charges 
almost equally into consideration.

Rule 3: Customer service:

As a store owner you have to be always in touch with your customers from the start 
to end of the transaction. When a customer purchase item from your store, and if 
she receives the complete shipping information when item was shipped, she will be 
certainly pleased with your store. Also, when she has product related queries and if 
she gets an immediate reply, she will definitely buy the same from your store and 
would become your returning customer. In online shopping, buyers always expect 
prompt response from the sellers. So, as a seller you have to get ready to respond to 
your customer’s emails promptly.  This will lead to more positive reviews which in 
turn   increase   your   store   reputation   and   selling.   When   there   are   100%   positive 
reviews, you may also get a chance for bulk selling. If you do not have time to reply 
to your customer’s queries, you can hire customer service experts who can take 
care of your customer’s queries/feedbacks or claims (if any)


Rule 4: Easy return policy:

All   these   factors   are   interlinked   with   each   other.   Easy   return   policy   is   other 
important   factor   that   impacts   your   feedback.   When   customer   comes   for 
return/exchange, feel free to accept the returns. Buyers feel safe and comfortable 
only because of this factor and this is the main reason for shopping online. So 
make sure you offer this easy return policy to attract your customers.


Rule 5: Item as described:

Selling   100%   quality   goods   and   representing   them   in   your listing   with   clear 
description will surely change your new customer to returning customers. Also, 
your product’s quality will be reflected in your buyer’s feedback. When your item’s 
quality   is   not   up   to   the   expectations,   2   out   of   10   customers   never   come   for 
inquiries. They just leave negative feedback for your store. So check for a good 
supplier, and mostly prefer buying goods directly from manufacturer to deal with 
best quality products.

With   these   5   rules,   when   you   offer  other  sweeteners’   like  offering special   and 
additional   discounts,   coupons,   free   shipping,   convenient   locations,   same­day 
delivery, 24/7 availability for shipping and responding to customer’s questions, you 
will not only be one of the top seller for this holiday season but forever
