The official eBay store I NEED HELP thread!

  1. Others, please feel free to use this thread to ask any Q's you may have too regarding eBay stores.

    I just opened up a store last night and there are certain items that I have just listed but I want them to be formatted as the 30 day listing!! How Do I switch it it?

    Thank youu in advance...
     
  2. If you selected the type of auction as "store inventory" they should automatically be listed for 30 days. Sounds like you either just did "auction" or "fixed price". You can still do BIN or BIN/best offer in your store, but you have to select "store" as the type of auction. I use Auctiva to create my listings and it's a radio button at the top left. If you are listing right through eBay, it's right above where you put your price in. You should be able to fix it. I know when you have items listed in your store it gives the option to send to auction or fixed price, but you still have to pay the listing fees. So there should be an option to send it to your store. You will be out your initial listing fee no matter what, so if you can't "send to store" you may have to end the listing early and re-do it. I only have items in my store right now, so I can't check mine to see if it gives the option to send it to my store. Hope this helps! Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

  3. vickiiii u are awesome! i am going to go try fixing it now!
    thank you!!!
     
  4. vicki, is it possible to move auction style/buy it now/7 day listing auctions to store inventory items?
     
  5. That's the part I'm not sure of. I only have items in my store right now, so I can't check it. But... if I view one of my store listings the option to send it to online auction or fixed price is at the top left where you would revise your listing. So if it's possible to send it to store inventory, I would imagine that's where the option would be. See if that works. :smile:
     
  6. Thanks! :smile: Ya, I just opened a store a few weeks ago and it's kind of confusing at first!
     
  7. Bad news... I just re-listed an item that had ended, but didn't sell. I don't see an option anywhere to send it to store inventory. If you want to put it in your store to have it listed for 30 days, it looks like you will have to end the listing and re-list it as store inventory, which means you lose your listing fee and have to pay the listing fee to list it in the store. The listing fee for store inventory is really cheap, but I don't know if you want to be out the listing fee you already paid. :sad:
     
  8. Hi. If you have a store, you still need alot of auctions running to lure people to your store. My general rule of themb is to list an ite, for whatever number of days, relist it. If it doesn't sell, it goes in my store.
     
  9. What is the advantage to having a store?? I have lots of items I am looking at listing- Is it better to have the store?? It seems like the Final Value Fees for an item that sells in a store are WAY excessive...

    Is it just the benefit of the 30 day listings??
    Do you know if your items in your store will pull up when someone does a search?? i.e. Items are Marc Jacobs Handbags and someone does a search for Marc Jacobs Handbags ~ or are items only visible when someone goes to your store? Honestly it seems like the fees would even out in the end as far as the duration of the listings goes but not sure how you get folks to see your items??? I appreciate any help anyone can offer - if there is another link here addressing issues like this please point me to it - Thanks!!
    I have been selling for a while but with straight listings and was just looking for another option since I have some many items to list...TIA
