  • How do items sell on eBid?

    I have been listed on eBid for many years . I am registered as a "Seller +", I I have on average 80 items listed for sale. I offer return and refund policy. My items are listed at rock bottom prices (any lower and I would have to pay the buyer to take them), The items I have listed are all genuine. My question is WHY HAVE I NOT SOLD AN ITEM??? I would be interested in knowing what I am doing wrong. I am beginning to wonder if eBid is really an alternative to eBay where at least similar items listed do sell to buyers domestic, in UK, Europe, USA and around the world.
    If anyone has an answer I will be grateful to them.

    Hi,

    Your auctions look new or recent, they are carrying the purple logo. If you recently started listing that might be the reason you have not sold. Your auctions are also in RUS (run until sold), so at bottom of heap. Should list 7 to 10 days, with repost x10. You have very nice items.

    Also "Your About Me" page has no details.

    P.S. You have 13 positive feedback that are all from eBid as a seller. Am I missing something?

      What you appear to have missed is the most recent feedback from a buyer is from Fri 06 Aug 2010

      so maybe that is what is meant by the post (they haven't sold anything in years)

            They sold at least 13; and the auctions running now went up about one month ago. That is not years ago.

              Fair enough...you work out your dates in a different way from me.

              August 2010 was years ago ....I don't see what later auctions have to do with when the seller last sold.

                The seller has very nice items, and stated he sold them easily on the Bay. I looked at his auctions here and the start date is there.

                  He sold easily on eBay…well…let’s see what is going to happened in here….in the next 365 days more…’’of course’’ after he set :
                  Good description for all items …
                  List many as you can…
                  Set own items on 7 to 10 days with auto repost 10 times
                  Promote your items on eBid thread (Plug you auction)
                  Offer ‘’cheap’’ International shipping…
                  Tell everybody you know for about eBid…
                  And tell your previous buyers from eBay too…
                  And ‘’of course’’ visit social threads on eBid and in that way someone can buy from you or you can buy from him…(The money doesn’t matter if you sold something and next day spend that money back and buy something else in here, you will not make profit from that but you will support this site and you will support members in here and other members will support you)…
                  And in the end if you not move much in the next 365 days at least stay on social threads and from that you will have very nice and fun time in here…I can guarantee you that a 100%...
                  Well...that’s all…’’for now’’…
                  I wish you good sales in here……....

                    I never thought I'd say this but "Wot Dzambo said"

                    + create an eBid shop (or more if you have other types of item)

                    complete your about me page.

                    and Yarnalong for craft patterns and some materials

                      "How do items sell on eBid?"

                      usually someone looks at the item and deliberates the price and as a think then comes back the following day and hits the buy it now button sometimes you get a bid , but i find that a bit boring having to wait until item ends

                      hehe sorry took me happy pills

                        What they all have said. I personally do not like colored descriptions. They are too hard to read quickly. Remember there is a reason books are printed in black on white or beige paper. I am both buyer and seller and if I was shopping for your things I would look and leave because of the red lettering.

                        Run until sold is great for sellers that have built up a repeating customer list and that have lots of like items.

                          Simple answer is;by not selling them on greedbay.
                          No matter how low your prices are here if you still sell them over there,that's where the buyer goes.The majority of people don't like change & seem to think,"Better the devil you know".

                          How to change that mindset is anyones guess.

                            Peoples like changes but for those peoples need to know where that is ‘’changes’’…
                            Word of mouth doesn’t work…that much…
                            List a lot items in here doesn’t work…that much…
                            Good description for own items doesn’t work…that much…(just ask peoples who has good description and let’s see sales, compared of amount of the money and for items total selling price I mean in whole site not for only couple sellers)
                            Let to know your previous buyers where you now selling don’t work…that much…
                            And many…many…many...other suggestions where many in here try in the past 12 years…don’t work…very well…
                            Big advertising works very well…but we can’t have that with our low selling fees or no fees at all for many things…
                            So…just ‘’again’’ leave how it is now…if you sell something be happy if not sell be happy for that too…
                            And by the way I almost ‘’forget’’ in here one stuff works very well without any big advertising…and which one is it, is very easy to figure out for anybody who is in here day to day…

                            P.S. Dzambo loves you all…like ‘’usual’’…...
