Listing Promotions

By Chris Dawson February 27, 2018 - 2:01 pm

eBay are improving the marketing tools available using feedback that you, their sellers have given them. These are optional listing promotions tools that you can use to increase your sales and eBay are also adding capabilities for third party multichannel management tools so you can manage your promotions through your preferred software solution.

Codeless Coupons replaced by Seller Coupons.

Coupons are a tool to help you to encourage sales and to get your products noticed on big shopping days. From June 2018, eBay will be replacing Codeless Coupons with new and improved Seller Coupons. These will help you to boost your sales during big retail moments like Spring, Mother’s Day, Back to School and Black Friday.

Coupons can be used both on and off eBay so if you want to drive traffic from social media, blogs and email marketing then you can issue your own discounts only valid for your products to boost your own sales on eBay.

Like other Seller Hub promotions, a range of options will be possible and you get to choose when and what to offer on your Seller Coupons.

eBay’s long term goal
