eBay Launches Seller Bootcamp Training

eBay logo

eBay logoeBay is launching a program to help sellers jumpstart sales and grow their business. The eBay Seller Boot Camp is a free virtual course that begins on March 5th.

eBay compared the experience to a fitness bootcamp for people who want to get in shape quickly and want the “camaraderie and inspiration that comes from a group learning experience.”

Sellers who sign up for the program will receive four weekly lessons and assignments in their email inbox. It requires two hours to complete each weekly assignment.

eBay explained, “The lessons will be taught via video, blog posts, and Seller Center pages, which you can consume at a time that works for you. You’ll also be given assignments; you might be asked to think about your business strategy or dive deep into your business metrics and analyze your numbers.”

It will also offer coaching via weekly video lessons where eBay staff will also answer questions.
