This is a very simple tip to help you boost the amount of sales you’re making in your eBay store. If you’ve been selling on eBay for a while now, you might already have made this part of your business practice, but if not, I’d advise you to implement the strategy as soon as possible.
The technique works if you’re selling multiple quantities of the same item in your eBay store, and you’re able to order more stock when yours runs low. The crucial part of this method is to never, for any reason, let yourself run out of stock completely.
Items in an eBay store can be listed as “good until cancelled”, which means that you’re sell them indefinitely until you run out of stock. If you’re beginning to run low, hurry and get some more in before you’re out. If it gets to the point where you’ve only got one item in stock and your new ones haven’t arrived yet, under no circumstances should you let that last item sell. To prevent this from happening, raise the price on the item to something that nobody would pay. Add an extra 0 to the end of the price – for example, if you’re selling the item regularly for $9, list it for $90 instead. Once the new stock comes in, remember to return the price to normal when you list that your new stock has arrived.
Doing this will keep the item listed for sale in your store, but nobody’s going to buy it due to the ridiculous price hike. You want the item to remain listed in your store! eBay will give more visibility to items that have been selling for a lengthy period of time, which means the more you sell an item, the more attention eBay is going to give that item, since it seems to be in high demand from your store. Yours will come up among the first results when someone searches for that item, and the more visible your item is, the more sales you’re going to make.
