I recently opened up another account with ebay specifically for second hand items.
I have a terrible habit of constantly revising my adds trying to get them as perfect as I
can. I am certainly not a professional at this ebay game, most assuredly an amatuer.
At one point I thought I would check the View Sellers Other Items link. I noticed that my adds
didn't seem to be coming through. I contacted Live Help which I always do when I have any
problem, they are fantastic. The gentleman I was chatting to asked if I had revised them
recently. When I told him, "yes I can't seem to leave them alone, and that I am constantly
revising to try and get them right. He said to me, just to leave them and not revise anymore.
He went on to explain to me that everytime you revise your adds you are pulling them out
of the system and it takes 2-24 hours for them to be indexed again. Not realising and
wondering why my sales hadn't been doing too well, customers weren't seeing my adds
enough because I kept taking them out of the system in order to get my adds perfect and
make them as attractive as I could. So for any newies out there who like me are still
learning, just a little bit of advice, try to get your adds right the first time and not revise them
all the time. Customers will see them a lot more! Well, you learn something everyday.
Hopefully from now on my sales will start to increase, I know my traffic has.
