eBay Advice for Increasing Sales: Lower Your Prices
As an eBay store seller for the past 16 years, I have gotten many emails from eBay claiming they can help me increase my sales. The one I received today made me laugh. eBay has no idea of what it takes to sell on their site.
The email said if I click on a link they have suggestions on how I can sell 100 of my store items. I clicked and it told me I should reduce the prices of all of them (they suggested outrageously low prices) and add FREE SHIPPING.
Now if I did what they suggested and sold the items including FREE SHIPPING, for the price they suggested after my eBay fees and PayPal fees and shipping costs, it would end up me paying $1.00 to $2.00 for each item I sold, putting me out of business in no time.
Can't they see from my store that every item has a BEST OFFER on it. So I am willing to accept "reasonable" offers plus shipping on every item. And I do a lot of sales this way.
They should hire people or come up with ways to help the seller that actually do help the seller and not that cost the seller a loss for each sale.
