Exclusive to eBay, the Product research and Sourcing Insights tool provides critical insight which allows you to find more products, list more effectively and generate more sales.

What are eBay research tools?

Product Research and Sourcing Insights is an exclusive eBay tool. It’s an effective way to research what your competitors are doing, how they’re doing it, and how you can improve your own listings on eBay. It’s available under the eBay Research Tab in Seller Hub and is free to all sellers.

Product Research and Sourcing Insights uses recent eBay supply, demand, and pricing data to help you determine what to sell, when to sell it, and at what price. Research recent marketplace price trends and real-world sales data for millions of items to optimise your listings and improve your sales velocity. Analyse markets, competition, and hot trends and products to find the best-selling items on eBay. 

The best part? It’s free to all sellers. Find it under the Research tab in Seller Hub.
