  • Creating your own eBid branded store



    Creating your own eBid branded store


    Posting your items on eBid will get the product in front of tens of thousands of people looking for great products and awesome bargains. By creating an eye catching profile, appealing listings with great pictures, detailed descriptions and building up feedback from previous sales are the basics to success at eBid.


    If you are selling a lot of different products, you might be missing a trick which can help to get your products in front of many more eyeballs. If you want to get the best out of eBid as a seller, a good idea would be to set up an eBid store.

    Brand and Trust


    Many people search eBid to buy products they can't find in the shops or to find a great bargain. You can usually sell many items by simply posting them at eBid, but you can get a lot more out of eBid when you set up an eBid store.

    eBid stores will help you to create a brand and loyal following of people who trust you and know that you sell great products. Which is great for profits, because people will always pay more for assured quality. You may also get customers referring their friends to your store. Word of mouth could boost your sales because people are more likely to trust a store someone has recommended.
    Stand out

    By creating your own niche store in a particular category it makes it easier to get “impulse buys” - people stumbling across something they didn't actually know they wanted.

    Let’s assume someone is looking for a mobile phone and is not searching for a phone case. But if they find your mobile phone store when browsing for a mobile phone they might see the case and decide they need it. This would net you an extra sale you otherwise wouldn't have found.

    You can have up to 5 stores with your Seller+ subscription, allowing you to create specialist stores in all sorts of different categories.

I'm brand new; today March 29, 2017,I signed up; can you tell me how to create these stores! I came from Ebay where they had no such thing! Thank You!

      I think it would help you to watch the HTV entitled 'How to make your eBid shop' as it gives you step by step instructions. The video is near the bottom of the page on this link.

      My old walk through can still be seen here:
      https://web.archive.org/web/20150706...idkb.htm#a0013

      As the site it was hosted on doesn't exist now some links may no longer work and it may not exactly match the layout of the new site, but some of it may be helpful.

      Using all 5 stores gets you seen in the featured stores 5 times instead of the once for one store too

      Hi, it just opened and played perfectly for me. Do you need to refresh your page? Clear cookies?

      Astral's "walk through" link in an earlier post is definitely worth a look at too.

      It's working fine for me too Bookmaykay. I would try what cheaver suggests or try a different browser maybe ?

      HTVs don't play on this device either. Returns an error 'This plug-in is not supported' - but doesn't say what plug-in is required.

      ​Well that's not a lot of help when it's meant to be a 'help' page !

      I think the lack of clarity on the issue is a browser/OS failure rather than an eBid one.
